Biography

Ben joined the Plancorp team in 2017 after graduating. He says Plancorp’s client-first approach and employee culture first drew him to our firm. The feeling was mutual, and he immediately fit right in with his team-player attitude and drive to learn.

During his time at the University of Missouri, Ben not only volunteered for a number of organizations—including youth tutoring programs—he also played on the football team. He still enjoys working out and helping others achieve their fitness goals. When not at the gym, Ben can be found pursuing outdoor activities, usually with his golden retriever, Breck, in tow.
