Partner - IT
Ben Branch received a bachelor’s degree in Marketing from Auburn University in 1991, and shortly thereafter had the incredible opportunity to work for NASA on the space shuttle. While music was his dream, the bills had to be paid. He has been in HR and IT staffing for the last 24 years.
Ben sits on numerous boards, such as Tech Birmingham Board and Executive Committees, as well as with many startups in the Birmingham ecosystem. Ben is also an entrepreneur, and invests and supports many local startup businesses in pre- and post-revenue funding. Helping new companies gain traction, and assisting under-skilled youth into new careers in technology is his passion.
Ben joined ITAC in 2003 and is active in the overall strategic leadership of ITAC while also serving as the Director and Partner over the IT Services line of business. Ben has managed sales and recruiting, and even waters the plants when needed.
