Ben Hovland

Wayzata Chamber Board Member, Chair

Signature Wealth Management 

“I joined the Chamber because growing up in a small town in northern Minnesota, I enjoyed being an active part of a community. After living, working and starting to raise a family in the Plymouth/Wayzata area, I was missing that sense of community. By joining the Chamber, I have enjoyed meeting others and have had the ability to be actively involved in a community again, bringing a small town feel to the metro area.”
