Looking for the A-Team?

Benchmark has developed trusted relationships with 100+ former US Government Officials in Defense, Intelligence, Cyber & National Security. Today, most are advising commercial companies to include the top brands in corporate America. Part of Benchmark’s differentiated approach has been selectively brokering introductions between these leaders and the private sector.

If your company is seeking the A-Team as a potential Board Member, Advisory Board Member, or Consultant, please contact Benchmark Executive Search.


These former officials have kept our country safe, protected our classified networks and secrets. They are in high demand from industry (Fortune 1000 to PE-backed growth to VC-backed innovative companies). Few people possess the experience, insight, and best practices as these esteemed executives. They are trusted, selfless professionals of character experienced in mitigating risk, achieving outcomes and committed to national security. Their unique understanding of the complex threat landscape, methods and capabilities used to combat these threats is now what Corporate America needs.


At Benchmark, we believe that while maintaining the integrity and security of government information systems is vital for our National Security, maintaining public confidence in the private sector’s ability to protect intellectual property, business information, privacy, electronic financial transactions and critical infrastructure is vital to America’s economy and ultimately our way of life. That is the reason we are offering this service.
