Ben Dehner – CEO / Founder

BenchSentry keeps your packages out of sight, protects them from weather and theft, and helps you monitor activity while you’re away.

 CEO / Founder

What makes you especially qualified to run this business? 

I’m effective at taking an idea and building talented teams around it to make it a reality.

Who is your ideal customer? How will you find them? 

The 23 million people who have had a package stolen are our targets. That being said, BenchSentry is for people who work all day, have families raise and care for, vacations to enjoy and everything in between that prevents them from being home when deliveries are made. We’re finding them through all the social media conversations and news stories around package theft solutions just as much as they’re finding us.

What KPIs are important to your businesses health right now? 

Our goal in 2019 is to put 5,000 BenchSentry units into neighborhoods across the U.S. For now, we are focused on building our BenchSentry community of fans and supporters who are ready to join the fight against package theft.
