Ben Larson returned to Trilix for the third summer in a row. But we hope he sticks around longer this time. After interning with us for two summers, Ben now joins Trilix as a full-time project manager. During his internship, he hit the road with the Balance™ GT Experience Tours, and now he helps coordinate and manage projects for the client.
Ben grew up in the country near Adel, Iowa, with three brothers and a black lab. He spent his childhood playing baseball, football and basketball, which led him to Grand View University, where he would play basketball for four years. Ben majored in marketing and business management and knew instantly that a career in marketing was for him.
We sat down with Ben to get to know him better — and there's a little tidbit at the end that will surprise you after learning he grew up with three brothers!
