Measured growth, family atmosphere, outstanding employees; Benchmark Bank’s recipe for success for 53 years.
Being family owned and operated, employees are not simply new hires, they join a cohesive team and this holds everyone to a higher standard. Our outstanding personal service begins with a strong internal culture that extends to our customer relationships. The average tenure for bank officers is 15 years and we couple this with low turnover which allows us to create and maintain solid relationships with the local business community. These longtime relationships are key to helping local business grow and prosper.
Equally as important; we believe strongly in giving back to the communities we serve. Our employees are mentored, and encouraged to participate, in community development. They use company time to serve on, and often times chair, committees for local non-profit and civic organizations. Additionally, we offer personal time to assist the local booster clubs in all the great work they do for their children’s schools.
Our awesome bank is cultivated by the personal service we provide one another, our customers and our community.
Lizzylu opened its doors, in the Westbank Market Shopping Center, on May 20, 2016. And since that time, our little shop has been blessed with excellent revenue growth. As for the store itself, Lizzylu strives to provide its “friends” (we like to consider our customers our friends) with a wonderfully whimsical and unique shopping experience. Our buyers work non-stop to find “just the right” gift for everyone from children to grandmothers and from dad to best friend. We take pride in offering special items that you likely won’t find anywhere else.
Furthermore, and most importantly, we are a shop with a charitable mission. In addition to regularly supporting the Eanes Education Foundation, each quarter, our volunteers direct a donation to a different deserving local charity. In communion with our volunteers, we invite our friends to join us in this charitable mission and we feel privileged to be able to give back to the community in a meaningful way!
