Dallas, TX, June 13, 2011 – Benchmark Bank announced the addition of Craig Womble to its mortgage lending team. Womble, a long-time veteran of the mortgage industry, will specialize in providing all types of Mortgage Services from home loans to refinances to interim construction loans.

Womble will head up the mortgage department at Benchmark Bank’s Park Cities’ location on the corner of Hillcrest and Lovers Lane in Snider Plaza. Womble will be able to offer his customers one-stop shopping for all of their mortgage needs with Benchmark Title also located in the same building. In addition to an array of loan products, Benchmark also offers loan processing, underwriting, funding and the loan closing all under one roof.

“I am very excited about this move and I look forward to taking care of all of my past customers, Benchmark’s existing customers, and hopefully many new customers in the near future,” said Womble. “Benchmark is looking into making a few lending changes which would allow us to become even more competitive on Jumbo products, which is great news considering the area we are located in.”

Womble, a long-time resident of both the Park Cities and Preston Hollow areas, has been in the mortgage business for over 9 years. Both of his sons went through the HPISD school system and he has a strong network in the Dallas-area, where he and his wife Gina are very active in their church and bible study.

“I have known Craig since we were at The University of Texas together, and I am so excited to have him as part of the Benchmark family,” said Mike Barnett, Chairman & CEO. “We are always striving to provide the best products and service to our customers, and we feel that the addition of Craig Womble to our Mortgage Lending team will help make Benchmark that much stronger.”
