The process that lead both parties – the KEYW Holdings Board of Directors and me, mutually – to come to the decision that joining the company as the next President and CEO was the absolute right move was thorough and engaging. Perhaps the greatest statement I can make about Benchmark Executive Search is their commitment to alignment – that both parties needed to make informed decisions to ensure ideal fit. Personally, I could not have asked for anything more. I cannot say enough about Benchmark’s role in that process – search should always work this way.

As an advisor to Benchmark Executive Search, and as a client, I can state without qualification that Benchmark and Mr. Jeremy King will find you a Leader that surpasses all expectations. Jeremy understands the intersection of government policy, business growth, individual leadership styles that fit a company, company culture and goals, ethics in action, risk management, rapidly shifting political trends, and rapidly shifting technology trends, opportunities and dangers. He has all this knowledge at his fingertips and can overlay that highly unique synthesis as it applies to a position requirement and candidates. He will assist in framing the position requirement and he will deliver the best candidates, or he will not take the search if he does not think he can do so. His track record is one of unmatched success and commendations.

After a decade of positive interaction with Jeremy King and the Benchmark team for hiring critical positions in my own companies, I was surprised when approached as a candidate for a board position with a satellite asset tracking company. Seeing Benchmark from the other side of the table, I quickly recognized why their candidates were so strong in their loyalty and commitment to the Benchmark team. As a candidate I was treated with the utmost respect and information about the opportunity was constantly updated. I successfully competed for that board role and enjoyed a terrific exit outcome for a company that had struggled for years. I have seen Benchmark’s capabilities from both sides of the table – all very positive experiences.

As governments and businesses “connect” and grow, adversaries and competitors are watching and exploiting our “inter-connectedness.” This growing cyber threat, the associated business risk and “what to do about it” are now becoming regular discussion items at all corporate board meetings. Chief Risk Officer (CRO) reports and recommendations are more critical than ever. Nonetheless, it is clear that most companies, Boards, CROs, CISOs and CSOs are not prepared to address this challenge. We need to identify executives who understand this threat and can translate cyber threats and proposed corporate response into risk mitigation, business continuity and growth. Finding this executive talent for different corporate cultures is rare. In my experience across government and corporate America, there is none better – in leading this executive search process – than Jeremy King and the Benchmark team.

After a career in federal government service, I have benefited enormously from my association with Benchmark. The company has an enviable network of friends in both the private sector and the federal government, particularly the National Security Sector. I have shared my experience with friends and colleagues by introducing them to Benchmark, and I am no longer surprised when years later they inform me of their continued valuable dialog. Benchmark is a unique search firm, led by a highly respected CEO of impeccable integrity and character.

In 2010, while happily employed with a large publicly traded Systems Integrator I was contacted by Benchmark several times. I finally met with them to acknowledge their persistence but also their ability to show up at some very exclusive session in the DC area. Having experienced the big brands it was refreshing to work with benchmark and see how they applied industry knowledge, board-level relationships, and detailed method for aligning buyer to candidate. Soon after accepting the new post I hired benchmark to help me fill up a new team and they were superior to work with as the buyer also.

Jeremy and the Benchmark team distinguished themselves in three aspects critical to our business. First, they have the most thorough understanding of the government sector, including customer needs, legacy and emerging technologies, and personal relationships with market leaders. Second, they quickly developed a very nuanced perspective of our business needs, from our technology through to our culture and worked tirelessly with us to get the right candidate in the right role. Finally, the value-add they bring with targeted introductions to potential agency customers, partners, and SME’s truly makes them unique. I would recommend the Benchmark team without reservation.

Perhaps the greatest attribute of the Benchmark team is understanding. Having worked with them on both the candidate and client side, it is my experience that Benchmark – more than any other Executive Search resource I have come in contact with – takes the time to understand what the client needs and where the candidate’s passion and skills reside. Working with Benchmark is not a force fit, there are no square pegs in round holes – they understand that this connection is vital to the long-term investment of building a great executive team.

ATSC was looking for a senior executive who had both management and operational leadership experience, and specifically, someone who had successfully scaled government services organization’s under $100 million dollars. Benchmark Executive Search brought us a number of strong candidates, and the very first one was the perfect match for the position and our company culture. However, it was Benchmark’s unique profiling, targeting, and matching system for screening and ranking candidates that really provided the extra value to our decision-making process.

Jeremy understands the intersection of government policy, business growth, individual leadership styles that fit a company, company culture and goals, ethics in action, risk management, rapidly shifting political trends, and rapidly shifting technology trends, opportunities and dangers. He has all this knowledge at his fingertips and can overlay that highly unique synthesis as it applies to a position requirement and candidates. He will assist in framing the position requirement and he will deliver the best candidates, or he will not take the search if he does not think he can do so.

When we had a critical need to find and hire one of the leading cyber security strategists in the country, we engaged Jeremy King and Benchmark for the search. We knew of the firm’s outstanding connections and they were highly recommended by numerous luminaries in the cyber world. Benchmark made it difficult to choose among the superstar candidates they presented.

Jeremy and the Benchmark team distinguished themselves in three aspects critical to our business. First, they have the most thorough understanding of the government sector, including customer needs, legacy and emerging technologies, and personal relationships with market leaders. Second, they quickly developed a very nuanced perspective of our business needs, from our technology through to our culture and worked tirelessly with us to get the right candidate in the right role. Finally, the value-add they bring with targeted introductions to potential agency customers, partners, and SME’s truly makes them unique. I would recommend the Benchmark team without reservation.

Benchmark Executive Search helped us in the search for a VP/GM in our federal sector. We worked very closely with their partners during the process and were impressed with their access, market insight, and the personalized attention and time they dedicated to our search. They truly exceeded our expectations and stand out as a unique partner in connecting federal industry organizations with the best talent available. They can be trusted with the most mission critical assignments. I found their integrity refreshing, and believe it’s one of the things that really set them apart.

ATSC was looking for a senior executive who had both management and operational leadership experience, and specifically, someone who had successfully scaled government services organization’s under $100 million dollars. Benchmark Executive Search brought us a number of strong candidates, and the very first one was the perfect match for the position and our company culture. However, it was Benchmark’s unique profiling, targeting, and matching system for screening and ranking candidates that really provided the extra value to our decision-making process. Their network of elite talent in the DoD and civilian sectors is top notch.

We came to Benchmark for their strong reputation and understanding of the Federal landscape. In a highly confidential search, we were seeking a ‘needle in a haystack’ and Benchmark Executive Search helped us find exactly the right leader we needed to support Fixmo’s growth plans. Our ideal candidate needed to be a proven player in the IC/DoD and have the ability to create and implement a strategic plan to achieve significant growth. Their shortlist candidates all hit the mark and we relied on their unique dashboard feature and ranking system, which helped us determine the best fit for the job quickly and efficiently.

Our challenge to Benchmark Executive Search was very specific – we wanted to find a leader with the ideal skill set and culture fit for Narus. We needed to find a proven executive with a strong reputation and ability to walk the halls within both the Intelligence Community and DoD with the ability to build a team and grow our federal sales. Benchmark went above and beyond to present us with the select few candidates that met our needs, and their flexibility, customized and personalized approach really made a difference. I recommend them highly to anyone in the technology or federal arena, and especially to fast growing companies with game-changing technologies who want to penetrate or scale their federal operations.

The process that lead both parties – the KEYW Holdings Board of Directors and me, mutually – to come to the decision that joining the company as the next President and CEO was the absolute right move was thorough and engaging. Perhaps the greatest statement I can make about Benchmark Executive Search is their commitment to alignment – that both parties needed to make informed decisions to ensure ideal fit. Personally, I could not have asked for anything more. I cannot say enough about Benchmark’s role in that process – search should always work this way.

As governments and businesses “connect” and grow, adversaries and competitors are watching and exploiting our “inter-connectedness.” This growing cyber threat, the associated business risk and “what to do about it” are now becoming regular discussion items at all corporate board meetings. Chief Risk Officer (CRO) reports and recommendations are more critical than ever. Nonetheless, it is clear that most companies, Boards, CROs, CISOs and CSOs are not prepared to address this challenge. We need to identify executives who understand this threat and can translate cyber threats and proposed corporate response into risk mitigation, business continuity and growth. Finding this executive talent for different corporate cultures is rare. In my experience across government and corporate America, there is none better – in leading this executive search process – than Jeremy King and the Benchmark team.

The company has an enviable network of friends in both the private sector and the federal government, particularly the National Security Sector.

Perhaps the greatest attribute of the Benchmark team is understanding. Having worked with them on both the candidate and client side, it is my experience that Benchmark – more than any other Executive Search resource I have come in contact with – takes the time to understand what the client needs and where the candidate’s passion and skills reside. Working with Benchmark is not a force fit, there are no square pegs in round holes – they understand that this connection is vital to the long-term investment of building a great executive team.
