Ben Voss

President and Founder
Ink Lake Advisors

An accomplished leader at the helm of executive teams, adept at defining and executing operational strategies while driving both short and long-term business objectives for optimal market competitiveness and sustained profitability. Proficient in devising and executing comprehensive expansion strategies, aligning corporate goals with business unit planning, and capitalizing on growth opportunities while addressing operational weaknesses.

Over 20 years of corporate governance and board director expertise in varied sectors and firm sizes, including some with $1B+ sales, I've steered many executive transfers and CEO successions. This required managing leave discussions, leadership searches, and hiring suitable successors to ensure seamless transitions and corporate governance.

I've led companies to profitability and resilience throughout my career. From my experience in manufacturing and public company leadership, C-suite positions, and board-level roles, I understand the complex technology, agricultural and industrial landscapes in North America, Europe, Australia, India, and South America.

Leading cross-functional teams to identify and capitalize on market opportunities has been a forte, resulting in the successful launch of innovative products/services and sustaining a competitive edge in the industry.

My career has encompassed a breadth of expertise spanning various industries, including public companies, industrial, manufacturing, farm machinery, autonomy, precision farming, ag-tech, telecom, and automation. This comprehensive knowledge underscores my specialized skills in pivotal technological domains within agriculture and technology landscapes.

My governance duties include a diverse set of private industrial companies, private equity, pension and benefits management, regulatory compliance, and law and standard compliance. In addition, I've optimized investment methods to generate consistent returns for pension fund sustainability and growth, displaying strong financial management.
