Your Mission is Our Mission

The ability for companies to compete effectively and grow market share, revenue and profit is directly related to the organization’s ability to attract and retain the best talent. Since our founding in 2007, Benchmark has been laser focused on becoming the premiere executive search firm serving the federal market (both technology companies with a mission application & government contractors).

Benchmark specializes in finding elite talent for startup, emerging-growth and mid-cap companies offering game-changing technologies or innovative services to the federal and commercial markets from Washington DC to Silicon Valley. The partners are known as   “honest brokers” and create long-term, collaborative partnerships with senior executives and organizations.

We believe the cloud/big data/analytics & cyber/security/mobility revolution will create entire new ecosystems for new business opportunities for investors and entrepreneurs. Benchmark will be there to build the management teams of next generation’s leaders (VC/PE backed tech companies, both for commercial and federal).
