Benchmark Bank is pleased to announce the opening of our newest branch in The Woodlands. Located just north of downtown in the greater Houston area, The Woodlands is a beautiful master-planned community that is home to more than 100,000 residents. Benchmark Bank opened its doors for business on June 15 and our mortgage team will join the bank in the new location in mid-July. Affiliated Mortgage Company is anchored by Kelly Malatesta and Rick Phillips, two trusted and successful industry veterans who have been serving The Woodlands as a part of Benchmark Bank’s Home Loan Division for the past 6 years. Benchmark Bank will be led by Jason Beene, a long-time Benchmark Bank employee who excels at both banking and lending.
