Jeremy Benton

CEO Impact Americas, and Global Commercial Director

Having joined Impact UK in 1997 as a facilitator before establishing US operations in 2001, my passion lies in leading Impact’s business and partnering with clients to architect custom leadership development programs. I’m a British national, husband, father of four, outdoor enthusiast and mountaineer. I’m always seeking my next adventure, my greatest accomplishment (other than having four boys!) was summiting Everest in 2005.

As a strategic business partner, I help clients improve business results via custom solutions that align talent development with business drivers. On weekends I'll be cheering at my two sons' football games or riding my John Deere tractor in pursuit of the elusive perfect lawn.

As someone with extensive experience in growing and transforming businesses in a variety of leadership roles, I now get to share my passion and knowledge with others. I enjoy working with a diverse group of leaders in a cross section of industries to collaboratively solve their L&D problems. Away from work, I coach a men’s rugby team in the greater New York area, and last year we made it through to a top four placing in America.

Program Manager, Americas

I am a program manager and I love that every day is different, from working on different tasks involved to make a program run smoothly to talking and meeting clients. I come from a hospitality background so I love the client facing aspect of my role here at Impact, as well as making sure every piece of the program is on schedule. Outside of work I am always doing something like teaching dance, travelling, and going to the beach!
