THIS IS US

BENT's founding partnership.

WE WERE SICK OF SMOOTH TALKING

Ben Chiappinelli &

Tom Benton

Hi.  Nice to meet you.  We're BENT.

Why did we do this?  Well, for starters, we have a lot in common.  The For Your Eyes Only soundtrack on repeat.  Heights above six feet.  A vested interest in craft beer.

We were also both sick of watching people drop crap videos on people's laps.  Videos that went nowhere.  Videos that gave videos a bad name.

We don't like heists.  We like success.  We're movie people.  We want a big finish, rockets and cheers and all.

That takes a certain skill and attention to people.  It takes applied experience and enthusiasm.  Above all, it takes the right ideas.

That's why we got BENT.  Because we were sick of the wrong ones.

Our Journey So Far

2020

BENT VS. PANDEMIC

BENT officially opened our doors three weeks before the State of Vermont shut down for the COVID-19 pandemic.  Ouch.

But guess what?  We made it.  We worked through the shutdown summer.  We even forged our first lasting partnership, a statewide client.

2022

ROUND TWO

Two years later, we have worked with coast-to-coast clients.  We've flown to whiskey country and climbed into the arena with business-coaching mini horses.  (Not in the same trip.)

We are more excited than ever for what comes next.
