Fathom Consulting is pleased to announce that Ben Vargo has joined the firm as a research and strategy consultant. Ben joins us from several years at Fusion Hill, where he led qualitative research efforts for medical device clients. He also spent time at Roundpeg, conducting research and leading facilitation efforts to create clients’ consumer-driven growth strategies.
“From the outside, it was clear that Fathom offered a rare pairing: impactful, challenging work and a commitment to the employee experience,” said Ben on his decision to join the company. “I’m excited to learn a ton and work on some great projects with the team.”
Ben has already impressed his colleagues and clients alike, diving into several complex projects in the med device and healthcare spaces with ease. “Ben has shown a unique ability to quickly understand a project’s objectives, and he has great instincts about what the client’s needs are. He has quickly become a trusted part of the Fathom team,” said lead consultant Julie Pettit.
When not digging up research insights, you can find Ben digging in his garden as he readies his home to host a backyard wedding for friends this summer. Another “What have I gotten myself into?” moment, Ben is preparing to participate in the North Star Bicycle Race in mid-September, an 629.4 mile race from St. Paul to the Canadian border and back. The race is unsupported—meaning that it’s out and back under his own power, with no assistance. Good luck Ben (and we’ll be here when you get back)!
A native of Washington state, Ben made his way to the Twin Cities to attend Macalester College—where he graduated with honors with degrees in Geography and Urban Studies. Learn more and connect with him on LinkedIn!
