DALLAS 100

For the second year in a row, BENCHMARK BANK has been named one of Dallas’ “fastest growing, most dynamic privately held companies” by the SMU Cox School of Business Caruth Institute for Entreprenuership.

The Awards Ceremony for the 2011 DALLAS 100 was last Wednesday, November 16th where they unveiled the rankings and…Benchmark Bank is the 7th fastest growing company in North Texas. WOW!

Last year Benchmark was ranked 29th in the DALLAS 100 and this year Benchmark moved up to #7!! What an exciting time it is to be part of such a dynamic, growing company! They announced that the Dallas 100 companies have created close to 8,000 jobs in the Dallas metroplex and are showing no signs of a recession in North Texas. This is especially impressive for a financial institution in today’s economy.

Be sure and grab a copy of last Friday’s Dallas Business Journal for more details on the Dallas 100, including an article and photo feature on our CEO Mike Barnett.

We are so proud to be named #7 on the DALLAS 100 list of the fastest-growing private companies in North Texas!

CONGRATS STACEY!

CONGRATULATIONS to our very own Stacey Patton for successfully completing the Susan G. Komen 3-Day challenge. She walked 60 miles in 3 days to honor the memory of loves ones lost to breast cancer and also to support the many survivors she knows, including a dear friend from work. This was Stacey’s third year to be involved with the organization: in 2007 she walked 60 miles and in 2010 she was on the crew. This year Stacey raised $3,410 towards breast cancer research on her home page.

Benchmark Bank & Benchmark Title employees were allowed to wear jeans to work on Friday, November 4th - the first day of Stacey’s journey - in exchange for a $5 donation to Susan G. Komen. It was great to see the Benchmark family rally around Stacey!

Another employee, Audra Murphy, also raised $970 on her own to support this great cause.

We are so proud to have such inspiring women at Benchmark!! Congratulations again to Stacey Patton for completing this amazing journey!
