Ben Phillips is a Director in the Audit and Assurance Services Group at Katz, Sapper & Miller (KSM) with over 11 years of professional experience in accounting, auditing and information security. He holds a BS of Accounting and Management from Purdue University.
Since college, Ben has worked in public accounting - performing audit and consulting services for start-up to fortune 500 size companies. Prior to returning to Indianapolis in 2017, he lived in Minneapolis and Chicago.
Ben lives with his wife (Brittany) in Westfield. He spends his spare time golfing, cooking, lounging in the pool, volunteering, going on vacations, attempting new home-improvement DIY projects and doing yardwork. He is also the treasurer of two other non-profit organizations.
Ben highly recommends reading “The Moment of Lift” by Melinda Gates. She states that being a feminist is believing that every woman should be able to user her voice and pursue her potential, and that women and men should all work together to take down the barriers and end the biases that still hold women back. He is a strong believer of this and tries to live by example.
One major goal is to increase the impact Women & Hi Tech offers to support women to break down the barriers that exist in the current society to ensure they have the resources and support to continue to succeed and grow professionally within the STEM community
