Ben McKean is the co-founder and CEO of Savored, the web’s leading membership site for booking discounted meals at the nation’s top restaurants. With Savored, consumers access a curated selection of restaurants, book their reservations online and score 30% off their entire bill (including alcohol). All discounts are discreetly applied at the meal's end, eliminating the need for coupons. Restaurants use Savored for yield management and to discreetly lower prices on tables that are otherwise unseated.
Prior to Savored, Ben worked in investment banking for Merrill Lynch’s Global Technology Group, where he performed extensive industry research primarily for clients in the Internet and digital media markets. Prior to Merrill Lynch, Ben successfully founded and exited CheapSummerHelp LLC, a service referral company that connects college student workers with customers seeking low-skilled manual labor. Ben grew up outside of Boston, Massachusetts, is a graduate of Georgetown University and currently resides in New York City.
