Ben Read

Ben Read is no stranger to Rotary.  His father is a member and past president of the Princeton club and his grandfather was a member of the Henry club, both in our district.  Ben himself attended RYLA while in high school and participated in some other Rotary-related activities at school.  

Ben grew up in Putnam and attended St. Bede’s Academy.  He graduated from Northern Illinois University with a degree in mechanical engineering.  After working awhile in engineering, Ben became an associate and business consultant at Everwell Business Solutions, a division of Aflec, where he now works.  

Ben has been married not quite 2 years to Mary.  They have a four-month old son, Max.  In his free time, Ben enjoys cycling and gaming.  He is interested in both the networking and service components of Rotary.
