A Note from Cindy Morris
I founded The Benson Agency in 2011 because with almost three decades of experience in business development first in the travel and tourism industry and then for nonprofits, I have seen the direct connection between having a strong mission and success. Now, as we enter a shifting economy that takes into account the growing role of older adults as our consumers, our clients and our workforce, we have a responsibility to serve through a multigenerational lens that answers to this longevity economy.
