Ben Abitz

Financial Planner

Ben’s story of helping people with their financial lives started at a very young age. Following the untimely death of his father, 10 year-old Ben helped his mother navigate the financial complexities of loss.

Ben graduated Magna Cum Laude from Ursinus College with a degree in Economics and was inducted to the Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society. There he was also a 4-time Academic All-Conference Selection for Football. He later went on to study Corporate Finance at Columbia University and Strategic Management at The Wharton School at UPenn.

Ben began his career coaching college football at multiple levels; including small colleges in North Carolina and elsewhere at the Division 1 level. He truly enjoyed the relationships and mentoring opportunities that coaching allowed him. He has combined his economics background and coaching experience into a successful career.

He joined Matt Logan Inc after experience as an advisor with a large investment bank and as a Wealth Strategist for a North Carolina based Family-Office that managed nearly $2 Billion in total assets.

Personal:

Family is at the core of Ben’s everyday life. He and his wife Megen have two children (Hayden, 10 and Sutton, 2) and live in Northern Greensboro. Ben has felt at home here since moving to the area in 2013 as part of his coaching career. His story took a dramatic upswing when he met his wife, a Greensboro native. As a family, they enjoy summertime visits to Yum-Yums, Grasshopper’s games, date nights at GIA, getting involved in youth sports and relaxing rounds at Greensboro National.
