Telephone Number

Ben David has an architectural/design background providing strategic information to candidates and clients throughout the Built Environment. Ben previously worked for a high-end custom residential architectural firm as a Draftsman, where he understands the importance of deadlines, documentation, and expected results from construction companies. Prior to that, Ben used to work for the University of Minnesota’s landscape team where he has relational experience coming from the field with firsthand experience of construction.

“As a previous architectural professional, I know first-hand how difficult it is to land the right opportunity that fits culturally with the integrity of the individual and employer. I work my hardest to ensure consistency in an inconsistent construction market.”

Ben is concentrating on the Earthwork, Underground Utility, and Heavy Civil construction industries providing National Contractors and Firms with extraordinary talent for growth and profitability. The companies Ben has assisted have met expected goals for doubling in growth, territory expansions, and succession planning to keep their companies increasing profits and efficiencies. Ben has successfully and consecutively placed top 5% performers within these arenas. He understands the importance of hiring talent that can take growing companies to the next level while maintaining their established company culture. Ben brings to Rauenhorst and construction-related companies realistic goals for building the ‘right’ team.

Ben has received his Bachelors of Design in Architecture from the University of Minnesota. He has participated in numerous construction-related events such as Minnesota Construction Association and The Bluebook.


  • Rauenhorst is tenacious if finding the “right” fit for win/win placements.

    I worked with Rauenhorst Recruiting Company on a recent transition from a Fortune 50 firm to a key leadership role for a growing commercial contractor. They provided the professionalism, yet personal care needed to help make me feel comfortable making the transition, but also represented my interests better than I could have possibly imagined.

    The Rauenhorst staff took the edge off introductions, negotiations, and made sure neither party’s time was wasted. Their tenacity, flexibility, and positive spirit helped move the decision-making along on both sides, but also struck the right balance to find the “right” fit for both of us.

    Rauenhorst Recruiting Company provided a service that was unforgettable, and I am proud to say that RRC will be the first firm I think of when finding the next fit for my new firm. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do. I have enjoyed our relationship thus far, but I look forward to what may be able to come. It’s been an absolute pleasure.
