Head of Housing, Transport and the Urban Space
Ben is Head of Housing, Transport, and Urban Space—three things that he believes inherently move together in lockstep. He intends to continue Policy Exchange’s paradigm-setting work in the housing area as part of an integrated plan to make British towns and cities clean, beautiful, and functional. Before he joined PX he was a management consultant at KPMG, an economics correspondent for City A.M., and for five years Head of Research and Head of Policy at the Adam Smith Institute. He has written for academic journals, every major newspaper and magazine, and appeared on every major radio station and television news programme.
