Benjamin Surman

Ever since I can remember I’ve been dabbling in something. I learned early on that if you wanted something you had to earn it. You had to spot windows of opportunity and then execute. It started with trading baseball cards and mowing yards as a kid. Growing to become a self-taught freelancer and founder, I have created brands and advise brands at Surman & Co. Nothing has changed since I was a kid. I still seek windows of opportunity to this day and capitalize on it with my ability to mend creativity with strategy.
