Ben Wachtel

Social Media Manager, Element Three

A graduate of Purdue University where he studied Professional Writing, Ben proved he's never one to back away from a challenge. He loves to communicate - his role at Element Three involves identifying creative ways to communicate with a brand's audience, but it also requires an analytical mind that can draw conclusions from pools of data. He loves taking on new challenges and solving problems in unconventional ways.

Prior to joining the team at Element Three, Ben was very involved on campus at Purdue. He was captain of the swim team, where he was an All-American and an Olympic Trials qualifier, and also was involved as a member of USA Swimming's Background Screen Panel, co-created an after school sports club for elementary school students, and worked for the School of Mechanical Engineering as a writer.
