Ben O’Quigley grew up on a farm in a small community south of Chicago. He didn’t take tests well in school, but received a full-ride college baseball scholarship to. He left college one year later, feeling drawn to building a career more quickly instead and believing that could change the lives of millions. His parents were teachers with humble earnings. The eldest of 5 children and the first grandchild, on both sides, when Ben launched his entrepreneurial career, he was told he was crazy. He was leaving a free education and a long-held dream of playing pro baseball to attend a technical school named DeVry Institute of Technology. He pressed on, and went to work for IBM at age 19 where he soon managed a large division of technicians and also created several algorithms for the company, eventually saving them hundreds of millions. Ben entered the mortgage space in 2001 and, 8 years later, became an orthopedic medical device implant rep. He has been in thousands of surgeries since. Ben admits he has failed in his life but, "today,” he says, “he’s been tried and tested by failures that have prepared him well for the success he's now enjoying.” As the founder and CEO of ercTree® he serves his clients in a this way, helping them to recover previously paid payroll tax as part of the COVID CARES Employee Retention Tax Credit.
