Ben graduated with Distinction from the University of Saskatchewan (B Comm.) in 1997 and received his Chartered Accountant designation in 2000. He spent 6 years in public practice with the final two years spent working for PWC in the Cayman Islands.

Ben’s practice focuses on business owners and knows that an advisor can provide value to clients when they work with an experienced professional who provides a comprehensive and customized approach that integrates tax, insurance, investments and accounting while having their long-term best interest at heart. Ben serves a small group of clients and is open to taking on new clients.
