Ben completed the entire fit-out of Thrive single handedly, and helped operations especially during lockdowns. He is responsible for so many moving parts, with no job being too big or small. He’s the one found on his hands and knees painting, assembling, drilling – in between meetings with staff, banks, landlords and much more. He’s also the guy at the end of the line when someone needs to get advice or to cry, or to figure out yet another technical difficulty.
Ben is an avid Thrive go-er (obsessed with Tracey’s programming) so you will catch him at class or can reach out to him with any Thrive related questions!
