Managing Director

Ben joined Signal Peak as a Managing Director in November 2018.  Prior to joining Signal Peak, Ben was a partner at Pelion Venture Partners.  Earlier in his career, Ben was an entrepreneur and practiced law in Silicon Valley.

Notable previous investments at Pelion where Ben was involved are Cloudflare, Integral Ad Sciences (acquired by Vista Equity), Soasta (acquired by Akamai), MasteryConnect, Monarx and DriveScale. 

Ben grew up in Utah and was lured back by the high quality of life, particularly the plentiful Utah powder.  He remains a “permanent student” and strives to learn something new everyday from entrepreneurs, his partners, friends and family.  He loves to travel with his family and is always on the hunt for another UNESCO world heritage site or Michelin-starred restaurant to enjoy.  Ben has an AB from Princeton University, a JD from the University of California, Berkeley and MBAs from the University of California, Berkeley and Columbia University.
