Growing up in Media, Pennsylvania, Ben is an accredited Asset Management Specialist and a Financial Advisor. From a young age, he expressed an interest in finance and a passion for helping others. Ben is a graduate of Drexel University where he obtained a degree in Mechanical Engineering while taking finance electives, playing baseball and dabbling in photography.
After graduation, Ben began his career as an engineer and a project and product manager in the field of plastics and diesel fuel filtration. It was working as an engineer that he realized that helping his coworkers choose and balance the investments in their retirement plans was far more rewarding than fuel filtration.
Soon thereafter he opened an office with Edward Jones where he spent six years building a financial planning and investment management practice. His knack for numbers and scientific approach as an engineer are a natural fit for the financial planning process.
Today, Ben lives in Hammonton, New Jersey with his wife Dr. Laurie Lemons and two (soon to be three!) children Brayden and Alexander. He currently operates his own independent financial planning and investment management practice through Kingsview Asset Management. Obsessively ethical, Ben specializes in offering clients easy to understand yet comprehensive financial information.
In his free time, Ben enjoys golf, working on projects around the house, green energy and aquaponics design, and game nights with friends.
