Ben Doctor is the Plant Financial Controller at Purolite's manufacturing site in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His responsibilities include inventory, month-end financial reporting, journal entries, budgeting and variance analysis.

He was nominated by Stephen Hanak, Financial Controller, for his contributions during Purolite’s 2020 physical inventory process. When finishing up his inventory count, Ben noticed a physical variance at one of the external warehouses. “Rather than accepting this difference as a normal variance during a physical inventory, he decided to investigate the transactions associated with the variance,” Steve noted. Ben’s thorough investigation led to the recovery of funds that had not yet been invoiced. “Ben’s attention to detail and the pride he takes in his job is the gold standard for which we all should strive,” Steve added.

Ben enjoys working at Purolite because of the inclusiveness and camaraderie. His team works very well together, and all their work is done “accurately and collaboratively,” explained Ben. When not at work, Ben enjoys spending time with his wife and family, as well as cheering on Philadelphia's sports teams.

It is a pleasure to have you on our Finance team – thank you for going above and beyond during the inventory process. Congratulations, Ben!
