Benchmark International is thrilled to announce the launch of its first office in Los Angeles (USA) dedicated to servicing all of California.

Benchmark's new office will be centrally located in Los Angeles in the upscale Marina del Rey community. The office will hold the growing deal teams in a contemporary ~4,000-square-foot facility in the Marina Park office complex. This office campus location houses a variety of other financial services, tech, entertainment, and entrepreneurial companies, and it is minutes away from the Pacific Ocean and Marina, with many restaurants, upscale shops, and retail businesses within walking distance. 

Marina del Rey provides an ideal location for the new office on the west side of Los Angeles as it offers easy access to LAX and all major LA freeways. The site neighbors LA's famed Silicon Beach area, home to cutting-edge companies such as Google, Facebook, Electronic Arts, Sony, and Netflix.

We know how to sell companies better than anyone.
"Says Derek Avdul, "The Marina del Rey location in LA is an ideal spot for us to launch our new California office for clients and employees. The convenient location in LA offers easy travel to and from the office from the Westside, San Fernando Valley, Central LA, Downtown, and the South Bay. It's also just a 15-minute drive from LAX, which is great for our clients from other areas throughout California."

The office opened in July 2023 and hit the ground running with a robust new deal flow. "The demand for our high-quality and professional service in California has been building for years. Companies have been asking us when we will have a dedicated team in California. We now have that answer and are excited to bring Benchmark International to California."
