Ben gets tremendous satisfaction from helping the Harris team use technology to simplify their work and bring measurable improvements to the communities and clients they serve. And he’s good at it, too.
With more than 30 years of experience finding the right balance between people, process, and technology to solve business problems, Ben has developed considerable expertise in IT strategy, cloud computing, software development, data analysis, change management, and collaboration and is currently serving as Vice President of Harris & Associates’ Applied Technologies group.
As former Director of IT at Harris & Associates, Ben has considerable expertise in all areas of local government including public works, finance, human resources, building and planning, criminal justice, and social services.
What this means for Harris—and ultimately clients—is improved performance and the use of data to drive better decision-making and deliver citizen-centric services.
Among his impressive pre-Harris credentials, Ben held IT leadership positions for Xerox Business Services, Microsoft Worldwide Government Solutions, and the County of Napa, to name a few.
You’ll also find Ben’s ingenuity and innovative spirit on display at home, where he’s built his own wood-fired pizza oven and home-brewing setup in his ongoing pursuit of perfecting one of his (and pretty much everyone’s) favorite meals.
I like that Harris helps local governments design and build projects that make communities a better place to live, work, and play.
