Ben joined Hostetler Financial in 2022 and serves as the Chief Investment Officer. He is responsible for leading our proprietary investment process and leads our investment committee. Prior to joining Hostetler Financial, Ben served as the Portfolio Manager for Virtus Wealth Solutions for 10 years.
After earning his finance degree from Georgetown University in 2009, he started his career in Investment Banking with Merrill Lynch, followed by Private Equity with Sterling Partners. He learned that, instead of working with institutions and companies, he thrives on personal connection and wanted to work more closely with individuals and families in helping them reach their financial goals.
Ben lives in Laurel, Maryland, with his wife Kaitlyn, son Holden, and daughter Harlow. He enjoys spending time with his family, surfing, carpentry, and the outdoors.
