This week I’m joined by Ben Hobday from Austin Fraser.

With over 10+ years in the industry, he started as a construction recruiter before moving to Austin Fraser where he has built his career for the past 12 years. 

It was great to sit down with him and talk about his tenure as well as some actionable insight on D&I, leadership, and growing a contract desk.
