Moving from consultant to regulator to proponent, to developing and growing a successful start-up business has given Ben an interesting and balanced perspective. 

He has significant experience in managing and delivering large and complex property related projects including award winning projects in Mixed Use, Sports & Recreation, Industrial, Infrastructure, Land Development, Brownfield development, Contaminated Sites, NRM, Project Risk Management, Place Activation and Renewable Energy.   

Ben was the founding employee of URBNSURF and following the company raising $36m in private equity, Ben led the development of Australia’s first commercial surf park in Melbourne.  Ben has since been bitten by the start-up bug and thrives on innovation, navigating Government, creating new markets and changing places. 

At Axito, Ben works in Strategy & Planning and Commercialisation.
