AXA - Benjamin P. Hudson

Welcome to my web site.  I am Ben Hudson, a financial professional for AXA Advisors, LLC.  My career with Equitable began in 1977 after graduating from Northern Michigan University in 1976.  Within one year I was promoted to District Manager, and was later promoted to Agency Manager in Southfield, Michigan in 1993.  In 1998 the Michigan offices were merged, and our headquarters established in Troy, Michigan, where I served as Branch Manager until 2013. 


Today, I have the privilege of working with many individuals and small businesses as their financial advisor, helping them build their financial futures.  Over the years I have earned several NCA, DLA, Regional Builders Trophy awards, and the National Builders Trophy.  I am a member of the prestigious Equitable Hall of Fame and a life and qualifying member of the MDRT.  My primary focus for the Branch has been the development of two Agency Managers, as well as promoting, developing and educating our Proven Producer Groups and our Established Sales Force.



My wife, Karen, and I live in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, with my son Brett, and our chocolate Lab, Luke.  My two favorite pastimes are hockey and golf (not necessarily in that order).
