Prior to joining Raymond James in September 2021, Ben worked in Merrill Lynch’s Greenville, South Carolina, office for 23 years. During that time, he had the very good fortune to grow his career by working with and learning from an exceptional mentor and friend, Niles Ray.

Ben, who holds a mechanical engineering degree from Clemson University, became a Chartered Financial Analyst® in 2006. More recently, he was named on the Barron’s Top 1,200 Financial Advisors* lists of 2020 and 2021.

An active member of his community, Ben has served on many local boards and committees, including Greenville’s Community Foundation, Meals on Wheels and Fourth Presbyterian Church. He’s also a board member of the Piedmont Health Foundation.

*Barron’s is a registered trademark of Dow Jones & Company, L.P. All rights reserved. The rankings are based on data provided by over 5,000 individual advisors and their firms and include qualitative and quantitative criteria. Factors included in the rankings: assets under management, revenue produced for the firm, regulatory record, quality of practice and philanthropic work. Investment performance is not an explicit component because not all advisors have audited results and because performance figures often are influenced more by clients’ risk tolerance than by an advisor’s investment picking abilities. The ranking may not be representative of any one client’s experience, is not an endorsement, and is not indicative of an advisor’s future performance. Neither Raymond James nor any of its financial advisors pay a fee in exchange for this award/rating. Barron’s is not affiliated with Raymond James.
