Ben Locke

Where do you currently work?
I work at Hines, a multi-national real estate investor, manager and partner. I’m currently working as a CPA in a financial reporting role.

How long have you been on the NGSC for?
I have been on the Next Gen Steering Committee since 2017, and was introduced by my good friend (and groomsman), Phil Levin!

Why did you join the Next Gen Steering Committee?
Phil Levin was instrumental in my decision to join Next Gen. At the time, I was working long hours at PriceWaterHouseCoopers as an auditor and was looking for something meaningful outside of work. Iwas drawn by the mission of interest-free lending, something that changes people’s lives.

Where did you go to college and what did you study?
I studied accounting at Rutgers University.

Do you hold any advanced degrees? If so, in what?
I am a CPA.

What is one interesting/fun fact about yourself?
I have been playing violin since the age of 4, and I surprised my wife with a performance at our wedding.
