Ben has around 18 years experience working in the real estate software space (commercial, residential, investment management, corporate, IWMS and facilities management), both operationally as a seasoned executive and on the corporate finance, M&A and investment side.
Since joining the family business, Qube Global Software, back in 2002, Ben has been involved in business development, operations, corporate strategy and M&A within the sector. After selling the business to private equity backed MRI Software in 2017 Ben spent time integrating the businesses and looking after UK operations alongside the US based management team.
Both prior to selling the Qube business and throughout his time with MRI and beyond, Ben has been actively involved in M&A activity on deal sourcing, structuring and in carrying out due diligence. He maintains excellent relationships with private equity and investment banking firms, and industry software businesses, both in the real estate software vertical and in the wider tech space.
With a keen interest in the startup community Ben also mentors for a number of startup accelerator programs in the industry and works alongside Concrete VC, a niche PropTech and ConTech venture capital firm, in a Venture Partner capacity.
Outside of work Ben, is a family man residing in London with his wife Deborah and their four children. He is an active community member, a lapsed fixed wing pilot and a terrible regular squash player.
