Benchmark Bank is pleased to announce that Benchmark Title President, Jonathan Filgo, has been appointed to its Board of Directors. He joins the ten-member board, led by Chairman Mike Barnett, effective immediately. Jonathan received his B.S. from the University of Texas and, subsequently, his MBA from Southern Methodist University.
When Jonathan joined Benchmark Title in 2007, the company had nine employees in two locations. Today he manages over 45 employees in four locations including the 28-person commercial title headquarters in Uptown Dallas which was established in 2011. Jonathan has been instrumental in transforming Benchmark Title from a localized boutique title company to one of the largest independent title agencies in Texas.
While business is important, Jonathan has always found time for various philanthropic endeavors including The Salesmanship Club, Park Cities Dad’s Club and as a mentor to SMU business students. Under his tutelage, Benchmark Title has been actively involved in numerous community non-profits in Dallas, Plano, Frisco and Austin.
Trusted, admired and liked by employees, clients, and colleagues, Jonathan would best be described as someone that people want to be around. His approachable personality coupled with his intelligence and work-ethic make him a natural leader who has earned the respect of his co-workers by guiding with insight and producing positive results.
Jonathan resides in Dallas with his lovely wife Megan and their two wonderful children.
Congratulations Jonathan for this well-deserved honor!
