As the director of programs at the Archbridge Institute, Ben Wilterdink oversees projects, manages marketing and writes reports on topics ranging from occupational licensing to youth employment. Before joining Archbridge, Ben was the director of the Commerce, Insurance and Economic Development Task Force at the American Legislative Exchange Council, working with state lawmakers from across the country to reform occupational licensing laws, reduce overly burdensome regulation and streamline government services.
Wilterdink grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, but moved east to attend Liberty University, earning a B.S. in government. When he’s not working, Ben enjoys a nice cup of coffee (or scotch) and a good book.
