Ben joined Robertson Cooper in 2001 as a Business Psychologist. He then went on to become a product development psychologist, working on the design of many of Robertson Cooper’s products – including the original design of ASSET, our measure of wellbeing and engagement. From there he became Product Development and Marketing Manager where he started the process of building a market-focused function capable of building the products that the market was looking for at the time. In 2007 he became Director of Business Development and Marketing - and was tasked with building a professional team that could promote the company and develop mutually beneficial long-term relationships with clients.

Following success in that role Ben was appointed as Managing Director in April 2010. His remit is to grow the business and take Robertson Cooper to the next level – in terms of connecting with the market, partners and the wider community. Ben provides leadership, strategy and direction for the company, and has board level responsibility for business development. He works with our team, external partners and investors to create a bright future for the business.

Qualifications and experience

A registered Psychologist, Ben has a degree in psychology from Manchester Metropolitan University and an MSc in Occupational Psychology from the University of Nottingham. On completing his master’s, he worked as a consultant at The Thornhill Consultancy, a family firm specialising in the profiling of leaders based on non-verbal behaviour.

Prior to joining Robertson Cooper he worked for Greater Manchester Police where he was Principal Occupational Psychologist. At a local level, his role included job redesign, wellbeing and competency development for police officers and staff. However, Ben was also responsible for delivering a ‘Best Value’ review of ACPO nationally, a task that involved interviewing the Home Secretary and Police Minister.

Outside the office

When not working Ben loves to grow things - he’s even converted the alley behind his house into a small allotment, an innovation that has contributed greatly to his work-life balance. Ben is also passionate about live music so it’s no coincidence that our offices are yards from one of Manchester’s best venues. For his sins he is a lifelong supporter of Nottingham Forest, too, and once had a memorable encounter with the late, great Brian can’t be repeated here, you’ll have to ask him!
