Until recently, Ben Bolot was Chief Investment Officer of Spark Infrastructure, a leading energy infrastructure owner listed on the ASX. Prior to this Ben was General Manager, Strategy, Sustainability, Regulation and International Development as well as Chief Risk Officer at Origin Energy Limited. Ben holds degrees in Commerce and Law from the University of Auckland and was admitted as a Barrister & Solicitor and a Chartered Accountant in New Zealand.
Ben grew up in New Zealand where a small Jewish community relies heavily on the goodwill and efforts of volunteers. His parents and grandparents were very actively involved in all aspects of Jewish life in Auckland so growing up he was always aware of the need for individuals to play their part in looking after the wider community. Most recently Ben and his wife have worked with United Israel Appeal to introduce a new division aimed at engaging the younger generation and their kids.
