BENJAMIN KOPPEL comes to GTI after a decade spent in the public accounting industry, where he provided audit and tax services to small-and-medium sized businesses principally in the greater Chicago area. His experience adapting to unique and dynamic client circumstances and needs serves him well in the rapidly-changing cannabis industry. Ben joined GTI for the opportunity to work in America’s fastest-growing industry, pun fully intended.
Ben graduated from Northern Illinois University in 2006 with a Bachelor’s of Science in accountancy. He earned the Certified Public Accountant designation in 2007 and earned the Chartered Financial Analyst designation in 2015.
Ben gives back to the community by serving as a volunteer soccer coach to six to ten-year old boys and girls through Chicago KICS youth soccer.
When not balancing checkbooks, “T-Bone,” as Ben is known to the GTI family, enjoys exercise, playing the piano, meditating and mixing delicious cocktails.
