A Michigander serving Michigan's government clients.

Ben Stone represents Flagstar’s Government Banking Group in eastern portions of Northern and Central Michigan, as well as Metro Detroit. He began his career as a teller 18 years ago, later moving into treasury management to support Government Banking.


Ben understands that trust and relationships are at the core of Government Banking. “We’re dealing with public money, so we have to build a sense of trust,” he said. “There’s a lot of due diligence involved. I think of my job less as sales and more as relationship building.”


Because Flagstar is Michigan-based, Ben believes it’s able to provide the hometown know-how that out-of-state banks just can’t match. “We live in Michigan, and we serve Michigan—and that makes us fully invested in the communities we work with.”


Professionally, Ben has held board positions on a number of state and local municipal organizations, including serving as president of the Macomb County Treasurers Association and associate director of the Michigan Government Finance Officers Association.


Outside work, Ben likes to coach his kids in baseball and softball. He also uses his banking expertise as a volunteer with Junior Achievement.
