We are thrilled to announce Sam Benner as our new Chairman of the Board of Bell Arts Factory.
Sam understands the value of hard work, communication, and giving back to the Ventura community. A born and raised local, his roots run deep in the town as his family has lived there for three generations. His only time away from home was to attend Stanford University on a football scholarship where he graduated with a degree in Communications, Pac-10 Championship, and 2000 Rose Bowl appearance.
He now serves the community as a real estate agent for Keller Williams and as a director of many non-profit boards including the Bell Arts Factory, Downtown Ventura Organization, and Ventura Chamber of Commerce. His free time is mostly spent watching his family members compete in athletics. His wife of 9 years, Amanda, is a roller derby skater, his daughter Alex, a soccer player, and son Dylan will play anything with a ball involved.
Sam is a wonderful example of volunteerism in our great city of Ventura. We are excited to have him on board and look forward to his expertise and enthusiasm for Bell Arts Factory.
