A Message from Jerry

Jerry CaldwellWhat happened to banking? Sure, there have been some convenient and wonderful innovations over the last couple of decades. But, wasn't it great when your banker was your neighbor, a friend or just a familiar face that you enjoyed stopping in to see or felt comfortable calling with questions?

We think so which is why we opened Benchmark Bank. Benchmark Bank is more than just a place where you can go to open a checking account or get a mortgage. It's also an experience, one you may not be familiar with or may remember from years ago. We have all of the innovations that have come over the years-online banking, ATM service, debit cards, to name a few. But we kept the personal, neighborly service that many other banks have left behind.

Benchmark Bank is a state-chartered, FDIC-insured community bank, with offices in Gahanna and Westerville, Ohio. The bank is owned and managed by a group of experienced local bankers each with twenty-plus years of banking in the Columbus area. We take pride in the fact that decisions are made right here in our office, not hundreds of miles away by someone who doesn't even recognize your name.

Benchmark Bank was founded on the principle that craftsmen leave their mark as a sign of quality and pride in their workmanship. Our craft is offering flexible financial solutions that promote personal success and, most importantly, providing exemplary service to each and every customer we have.

So browse through our website, but more importantly, stop in and meet us. Enjoy a complimentary cup of coffee and a cookie. We look forward to seeing you soon.

President and Chairman
