Benson Hausman
Executive Vice President, Chief Growth Officer

Benson is Executive Vice President, Chief Growth Officer for USIM, a leading independent, marketing performance company in the U.S.

He has a passion for growing brands and businesses and considers himself fortunate to be able to do what he loves every day. A passion that has driven success at media, creative, and strategic agencies – both independent and part of holding companies – including OMD USA, Publicis Media, Media Storm, Grey, Kirshenbaum Bond + Partners, and Masius Consulting.

Benson brings to his efforts a vision for new solutions to inspire, challenge, and drive innovative, strategic, and creative ways to fuel change. He is, at any given time, a leader, mentor, student, negotiator, a fire extinguisher… and a fire starter. An approach that has created disciplines, agencies, and driven over $2BN in new billings.

And, as a dual citizen of the U.S. and France, having lived in England and Holland, born to a Belgian family, and married to a French psychoanalyst, Benson brings a truly global perspective to everything he does.

He lives in Darien, CT with his wife, two teenage daughters, and three dogs. If not working, he is usually kayaking on the sound.
