Ben Forman

Founder / CEO at Wrestler

I run a company called Wrestler. We're a creative agency specialising in human centred storytelling. We're curious creators playing in social, digital, video and mixed reality.

I'm passionate about storytelling through technology, with a strong focus on future technologies. I started one of NZ's first commercial drone companies, have been at the forefront of the online video wave since before it was cool, and now run one of NZ's top VR / AR production companies.

I regularly speak at events and contribute to press such as Stoppress and Idealog. I have spoken at Adobe Max, TEDx Te Aro, Fusion Singapore and many other marketing and communications events.

I also invest in start-ups and am passionate about entrepreneurialism and all things new business.

Above everything, I care about people and relationships. Get that right and life is pretty good.

In 2018 Wrestler was recognised as the 47th fastest growing company in NZ in the Deloitte Fast 50.
