The new members will join eighteen other subject matter experts on Benchmark’s National Security and Cyber Advisory Board.

New Advisory Board Members include:

I am humbled to have each join our team of advisors.”

“Jeremy King and Benchmark are the perfect partners for matching expertise with opportunity; experience with need. Their unique ability to understand how an individual’s performance in the public sector translates into ability in the private sector is a gift for those finding their way or seeking new talent,” said Sue Gordon. “What differentiates Benchmark is deep understanding of the complex environment, commitment to a good outcome for all, unrelenting integrity in the process, and investment in the humans involved. When you are new to job search, as I was, someone who wants nothing more than you want for yourself is invaluable. I will be a customer, partner, and friend forever.”
