Display multiple Values depending on selection

Hi guys (1st post!) 

I'm trying to display different numerical values in a cell depending on what selection is in another cell's text dropdown. 


Dropdown choices.. Bob, Bill, Ben.. Cell A1

In Cell A2 I want to show '1', '2' or '3', depending on the A1 selection. 

I've been trying to use IF statements, but can only get it working for one selection (by hiding the value elsewhere in a hidden cell), but I cant figure out multiples. Would anyone have any suggestions? Is it even possible?

thank you.
