Experience

Tom Brady

“When I want to get things done off the field, I go to Ben. Practically all of my decisions, he’s consulted on. He’s someone I always rely on for his judgment. He’s very much family to me and my wife and our kids.”

Gisele Bundchen

“Having a tight inner circle is extremely important to us, Ben become part of our extended family over the years.”

Tedy Bruschi

“As a professional athlete, it’s all about trust. That’s the ultimate compliment – saying, ‘I would vouch for that guy.”

Julian Edelman

“As a pro athlete in the Boston area, you don’t know who’s real. With Rawitz, you can ask for certain opinions and not think he’s sheltering you. Rawitz will say ‘No bro that’s not right. You should never do that.”

“Trust is earned not given”
