Ben heads up the manufacturing team at KTN, which has a mission to help industry make things better…and make better things.

He enjoys co-ordinating our work supporting manufacturing with strategic stakeholders and partners including national and regional government, Catapults, clusters, trade associations, and learned institutions to drive positive change. He also retains the passion that all KTN staff have for direct industry engagement.

After ten years in industry (clean energy tech) and consultancy, Ben joined the Environmental Sustainability KTN back in 2011, where he developed a deep expertise in particular on circular economy, remanufacturing, materials security, design, business model innovation and tools.

Ben is passionate about technology and what it can deliver, but also champions the central importance in innovation of factors such as behaviour change, business model innovation, system change and evidencing impact.

The manufacturing team is a small team with a big remit. Ben fulfils this by driving connectivity across our sector- and technology-focused teams, activities and outreach, joining these communities up for mutual benefit.
