Ben’s extensive international experience developing cohesive security solutions in states with diminished governance and fragility brings a collaborative approach to managing relationships and risks in complex environments.

The past 30 years have seen projects and engagements across multiple sectors, presenting numerous challenges to transfer capacity and understanding of community stability, security, and human rights.

Since 2017, Ben has steered projects under the Preventing, Countering Violent Extremism (P/CVE) programmes in the Horn of Africa, Chad Basin, and Eastern DRC, focusing on sustainable community-based stability.


Justin brings 20 years of international experience launching and scaling organisations across South America and Africa. He particularly enjoys developing processes that enable recruiting and training at scale in challenging and complex geographies.

In 2018 he led the process design and subsequent recruitment and training of over 1000 sales staff for a renewable energy company operating in Tanzania, Rwanda, Ghana, Cote D’Ivoire and Nigeria.

Since COVID hit, he has relished the challenge of exploring multiple new sectors and developing solutions to widespread problems, from wind power to human rights compliance.
