Ben Copstead, CPA

Risk Manager, Portland and Seattle

Ben oversees our subcontractor/supplier qualification and insurance risk mitigation programs, aided by his strong listening skills and attention to detail. His favorite Warren Buffett quote speaks to an appreciation for the long view, “someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.” Outside work, Ben enjoys skiing with his two young children and convincing his two-year-old to put on PJs every night, and once ran a mile in 4:17. He’s been in construction finance and corporate banking since 2006.
