Ben Marcel

Ben Marcel ('00) is the CEO of Torapath Technologies in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. 
Born in Taiwan, he was adopted at the young age of two weeks old to live most of his childhood in Houma, Louisiana. After attending LSU, the starting point of his professional career was working for a major cell phone company, where his sales and networking skills were developed. Ben made the decision to start his own company in 2007. Torapath Technologies evolved over the years and provides managed IT and digital marketing services to other companies. Torapath Technologies has been recognized multiple years as a top technology firm in the Baton Rouge area by the Baton Rouge Business Report, and Ben was a 2020 Forty under 40 honoree by the same publication. A new entrepreneurship endeavor that Ben has taken on is opening a Code Ninjas franchise location in Baton Rouge that teaches children how to code by building video games.

Ben also enjoys giving back to others. He is the Area Director for sixteen BNI chapters in Baton Rouge, focusing on chapter and member success. Another passion is assisting with fundraising efforts for non-profits that centers around the 5K and marathon races that he participates in. Ben’s biggest goal in life is to pass on the same great opportunity that was given to him.
