Mr. Benson’s early career was with The Boeing Company, where he was recognized by NASA and the US Air Force for technical excellence and innovation involving Space shuttle and other projects, winning several awards. His last assignment with Boeing was as Vice President of Engineering, Marketing, and Worldwide Sales for the Boeing Construction Equipment Company, a producer of asphalt production plants. Mr. Benson holds several patents relating to improved process plant design and improvement and was awarded Boeing’s second highest patent award for his inventions related to asphalt recycling.
In the late-eighties, Mr. Benson led a successful purchase of the enterprise from Boeing and renamed the company, BMG Corporation. In 1990, he purchased Seltec Corporation, a producer of aftermarket asphalt and concrete plant controls. He has since led the initiative to transform the company’s offering to state-of-the-art software systems and services for the Aggregate, Concrete and Asphalt industry in North America.
Mr. Benson, long recognized in the construction materials industry as an expert in plant productivity and engineering, has more recently been recognized for his success in assisting the construction material vertical’s drive to leverage “general purpose” computing technologies and software to modernize operations, reduce operating cost and achieve higher overall profits.
Most recently he co-founded BCMI Corp, to modernize operations using mobile devices and cloud base, LAMP technology.
