Ben Cooper joins Rose Law Group

Scottsdale based Rose Law Group pc recently hired Ben Cooper, an experienced business consultant and former member of the Gilbert Town Council and Vice President of Business Development for the Greater Phoenix Economic Council (GPEC). Cooper joins Rose Law Group as a Senior Project Manager.

“It’s an honor to join Jordan Rose and her innovative team,” said Cooper. “I look forward to combining my land development experience and the knowledge and contacts I recently gained as a Town Council member in Gilbert to help clients achieve their goals wherever they are in the Valley and beyond.”

Cooper recently worked as a project management consultant, providing guidance to businesses of all sizes as they navigated the approvals process at the municipal, county, and state levels. During his time as a consultant, Cooper spent nearly five years as a member of the Gilbert Town Council. He was first appointed to the Gilbert Town Council to fill a vacancy, and was elected to a full term in May 2011 after receiving overwhelming constituent support. While on the Gilbert Town Council, Cooper was a member of the Gilbert General Plan steering committee and subcommittee on land use, growth areas, and transportation.

Prior to working as an independent project management consultant, Cooper was the vice president of strategy for the Greater Phoenix Economic Council (GPEC). During his seven years with GPEC, he supported the organization’s strategic initiatives, organized business development activities, and improved the region’s competitiveness in business by undertaking analyses in tax and fiscal policies.

“Over the last twenty years, Ben has repeatedly demonstrated his commitment to serving business owners all across the Valley,” said Jordan Rose, founder and president of Rose Law Group. “His experience in real estate and consulting, combined with his commitment to public service, will only help our clients as they grow in Arizona.”

Raised in Gilbert, Cooper earned his bachelor’s degree in 1995 from Brigham Young University, where he majored in International Relations. After graduating, he moved back to Arizona and earned his MBA from the Thunderbird School of Global Management in 1997, where he concentrated his studies in International Business.
