Benjamin West was founded in Boulder, Colorado in 1998 and is privately owned. Today, in addition to our Boulder headquarters, Benjamin West has offices in Chicago, Dallas, and London, with a staff of over 110 professionals.

Our founder and President, Alan Benjamin, grew up in the hospitality industry as the son (and young employee!) of professionals in the hotel linen business, before branching out and starting his own business in the Rocky Mountain foothills near his alma mater, the University of Colorado at Boulder.

Since the company was founded, it has grown exponentially, from a small staff to a global team of procurement and accounting professionals, with specialist teams focused on exclusive markets across North America, Europe, Asia, and Latin America.

Along with our team, our experience has grown immensely, spanning projects in 40 countries and six territories, across all major brands, and nearly every type of product type and asset class. However, our values have never changed: we remain committed to accuracy, integrity, and reliability, and other guiding principles that allow us to achieve our mission and vision.
