Ben is an ‘omni-tool;’ a balanced attack of service management consulting and technical expertise leading to intelligent solutions that are simple, tactical, and scalable. He ardently believes that along with these solutions come a communication strategy, robust documentation and requirements, and a governance model for the continual operational support and improvement. Ben has been working with service management processes and their marriage with the ServiceNow platform since 2010.
Ben leads a team of skilled consultants who are no ‘order takers,’ but consultants who provide experiential insight into why and how to make informed decisions. They embed themselves with a customer to understand the organization. They are not afraid to push back and challenge view points and decisions by looking at a puzzle through varied perspectives and presenting multiple different solutions with their risks and rewards that may be necessary to solve it.
Ben is very excited by the horizontal growth of ServiceNow across many different verticals outside of the classic ITSM suite. He has recently lead large implementations of Field Services, Asset and Inventory Planning, and Customer Service.
Ben lives in Colchester, Vermont with his wife Gabby, dog Daks, and 2 cats Karoo and Thembi. The whole family enjoys hiking, canoeing, and skiing in and around the Adirondacks and Green Mountains. Ben also enjoys playing basketball in his spare time and sampling all of Vermont’s fine breweries!

I love getting new problems to work on every day. That’s what drew me to ServiceNow development. Service now gives me an opportunity to not only develop services to fulfill a business’ needs, but also to help visualize how the usage of the service impacts the business overall. I geek out on data and finding the stories that it can tell. That’s why I’m excited to work with ServiceNow reports and Dashboards, to help visualize data in new and interesting ways.
OUTSIDE OF WORK
I like to spend as much of my free time outside as I can. Whether hiking, climbing, kayaking, or really anything else, I just love to get out in the fresh air. On days that I can’t get outside for something fun, I enjoy playing or listening to (almost all) music.

I’m very excited for the future of ServiceNow in terms of the empowerment of the fulfiller in terms of ability & efficiency. The new Fulfiller portal will serve as a powerful user-friendly window that not only better serves the fulfillers themselves, but also to the designers (such as SN partners) who can tailor the experience of the fulfillment user even stronger than before. Eagerly awaiting the London release to see the full capabilities!

SENIOR SERVICE MANAGEMENT CONSULTANT
Charles has been implementing ServiceNow for over 5 years for clients in a wide range of industries. He combines process and technical expertise to execute a wide range of roles, including process consulting and hands-on-keyboard implementation.
Process proficiency includes Incident, Problem, Change, Service Catalog, Knowledge, CMDB/Asset (incl. SAM), Release, Procurement, Contract, Customer Service, Compliance
Charles’ most recent project was a Procurement, Contract, and Asset Management implementation. It was an interesting project because those processes have significant impacts on the Product/Service Catalog, but the client was not yet ready to take that on. Thus, a principal challenge was setting those processes up to work for the client while also making sure any future interface with the Service Catalog was seamless. The exercise helped the client think about their process and system architecture on a macro scale.
Charles spends his free time playing soccer, watching movies, skiing, and hanging out with his Labrador, Lucy.
