As a managing consultant, Benjamin manages and executes financial and economic studies. These include projects focusing on multiyear financial planning and utility rates in addition to unique analyses to forecast and differentiate customer demands, assess utility service affordability, and evaluate alternative capital investment programs.
Benjamin enjoys helping clients leverage data to gain a better understanding of their utilities and served communities to make informed decisions. Using Stantec’s WARI® enhanced affordability analysis, he has helped communities and agencies understand and communicate the financial burdens rate increases may have on low-income residents. This allows them to modify plans to minimize these impacts and form strategies to assist residents. Benjamin is also one of the primary project managers in the development and roll-out of Stantec’s cloud-based FAMS financial modeling tool.
When he’s not working, Benjamin loves to be outside running and biking on trails and roads of all kinds and spends the rest of his time with his wife, new son, and two dogs.
