Benjamin is a Partner and the Head of Growth at Atomico, where he focuses on helping portfolio companies grow and evaluates new investment opportunities.

Previously, Benjamin worked in product and growth leadership roles on four billion-user products: Gmail, Google Maps, Facebook and Facebook Messenger. Some of Benjamin’s notable launches include growth features that added tens of millions of monthly active users to Facebook and an enterprise-grade contact manager within Gmail.

Prior to working in technology, Benjamin was a professional chef. He worked in top restaurants across the US, Italy and France refining his craft but eventually, the draw of bits over bites was too much for him to resist.
