Matt’s Comments on Benchmark:

Having worked with Jeremy and the Benchmark team for over a decade, they’ve become my sole source for recruiting or placing executive candidates in the security, intelligence, and high tech domains.  I’ve worked with Benchmark on all angles of executive placement and have seen them place retiring U.S. government executives into meaningful business leadership roles and conduct thorough searches for executives to lead a company through their next phase of growth.  Jeremy is a consummate networker and puts the effort in to maintain relationships over the long-term and his network continues to deliver value to those involved.
