Ben Cave is Colonial’s Newest Senior Operations Manager, University Portfolio
Congratulations to Ben Cave for his recent promotion to Senior Operations Manager, University Portfolio for our George Washington University Portfolio. Ben came to Colonial three years ago as the Senior Operations Manager for The Wharf. Prior to joining Colonial, he worked for SP+ at George Mason University’s three campuses.
Both The Wharf and GW have clients that serve multiple stakeholders, so fostering the relationship between Colonial and the client is an extremely important piece of the job. Ben says of his promotion, “I’m really excited about this opportunity. I think my background in both University parking and a multi-use, multi-garage, high-volume arena will really lend itself to serving George Washington University. When I was at The Wharf, I developed a really great rapport with our clients there and I’m hoping to be able to recreate that at GW and dive into how we can make our relationship there even better than it is now. ”
