Ben Jowitt – Relationship Director at CAF

Ben has been providing support to a wide range of charities and not-for-profit organisations with CAF Bank since 2015. He has over 10 years’ experience working exclusively with charities, and previously worked in retail and commercial banking for 25 years.
