Theodore Roosevelt inspired the nation, and the world, with his speeches that emphasized disciplined work and character. Our company name was inspired by his quote:  “The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena…who strives valiantly…who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement.”

The “In the Arena” award recognizes an employee who has gone above &  beyond, who has wholeheartedly stepped into “the Arena” to support our customer base in all facets. Ben Ivy has been a top performer on the contract, managing a Privileged User program for the past two years across directorates. Recognized by the government lead on multiple occasions, specifically as being “such a phenomenal asset to the (agency) managing, singlehandedly, the entire Privilege user process and the 4000+ personnel that maintain that level of access.”

Ben stepped up to a position of greater responsibility twice in less than 100 days, filling immediate needs and high visibility customer facing positions. Going the extra mile in epitomizing the Arena Way, this individual took the initiative to train and mentor his backfill, ensuring the customer received all required support. His efforts have been repeatedly lauded by customers and colleagues alike, and reflect positively on himself and the Arena Team. Ben Ivy exemplifies the spirit of the “In the Arena” Award through initiative, enthusiasm, and dedication to the customer & Arena, coupled with a “can do” attitude.
