Ben Talbert, Better Than Found

Ben brings nearly 17 years of experience, first working in, then recruiting for, the industrial sectors. After earning a Textile Engineering degree from NC State, Ben spent the first 8 years of his career at Milliken, the largest privately held textile and chemical manufacturer in the US. Ben developed his passion for all things industrial while being trained in the Milliken Performance System (TPM) for operational excellence.

In 2014, following a job loss as an engineer and a stage 3 cancer diagnosis, Ben felt the call to begin recruiting for the industries in which he had developed a passion for. Nearly 7 cancer free years later this mission continues with the establishment of Better Than Found. “When we have the opportunity to make a company, a career or a life better, that’s what we do.”

Ben has served on the Board of Directors for the Upstate Chapter of the Institute of Industrial & Systems Engineers for over 6 years. He sits on the board of Directors for 3GEN Ministries, a local non-profit ministry. He is an active member & leader at Grace Church in Greenville, SC as well as a workout leader and recruitment/expansion participant with F3 Nation (Fitness, Fellowship and Faith).
