About Ben Utecht - Founder

Corporate Culture Expert and Super Bowl Champion

If you want a commanding corporate presence to inspire, teach, and coach how to build world championship organizational culture, look no further than NFL Super Bowl Champion Tight End and Chief Culture Officer Ben Utecht.

Ben is the recipient of the prestigious NFL Hall of Fame coach Tony Dungy’s “Uncommon Leader Award“ for his leadership performance both on and off the NFL football field. After retiring, Utecht began building a significant career across multiple talents. His speaking career launched him into the Fortune 500 community as a subject matter expert, focusing on the strategy for building high-performing culture. Utecht’s passion for people and culture then entered into a corporate leadership position as the Chief Culture Officer for True North Private Equity. Utecht is also an owner in the top US Ninja Fitness/Entertainment Franchise, Conquer Ninja Gyms, where he oversees all culture systems that impact every location. To complete his pursuit of practicing a winning culture, Utecht became a partner in Behavioral Essentials, a technology company paving the way for talent acquisition and leadership development through customized behavioral assessment results and benchmarking.

I believe that what you believe directly affects how you behave and perform.

Ben Utecht's Testimonials


"Ben provided a great message to our group of financial representatives. During the planning process, Ben was great to work with. He took the time to get to know his audience and our organization and was able to weave in messages that were relevant to the group. I would definitely work with him again and would recommend him to others."

Jessica Schuppe, Field Operations Manager, E Minnesota/NW Wisconsin Region



"Ben did a fantastic job. On our program evaluation from the participants, he scored a 9.1 on a 10 point scale. He scored higher than Dr. Omalu. Our board chair said 'he hit it out of the park'."

Cathy Morrow, Senior Director


H.B. Fuller

"His speech today was spot-on for building a winning culture, but what made the difference was his warmth and personal presence that exuded with each and every person he met. We are so grateful and proud of Ben's efforts today. He was an amazing ambassador for the NFL, but more importantly of a husband, father and true champion."

Suzy Beesley, Manager, Office of the CEO
