Benchmark, Inc., a nationwide leader in roof and pavement consulting services, announced the retirement of its leader, Ron Harriman, and the appointment of Vince Ellison as the company’s new head. This leadership transition continues to support the growth and success under Harriman’s guidance. Harriman’s last day will be June 30, 2024. 

Under Ron Harriman’s leadership, Benchmark significantly expanded its footprint across the nation, providing unparalleled technical expertise and consulting services to companies with multiple facilities and complex assets. Harriman’s strategic vision for the company and passion for excellence grew out of having served with Kent Mattison, Benchmark's former Owner and CEO, for 25 years. Benchmark is a revered industry leader in roof and pavement evaluation, design, and construction phase services with a purpose to develop strong relationships and deliver proven results.

“It has been an absolute honor to lead Benchmark and work alongside some of the most talented and dedicated professionals in the industry,” Harriman commented. “I am immensely proud of what we have achieved together and am confident that under Vince’s leadership, the company is poised for even greater success.”

Vince Ellison will take over the reins as Benchmark steps into its next phase of innovation and growth. Ellison spent the last two years working alongside Harriman to ensure a smooth transition. Ellison brings a wealth of experience and a fresh perspective to drive the company forward, building on its solid foundation and legacy established by Harriman and the Benchmark Owners, both past and present.

“I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to lead Benchmark, a company renowned for its incredible client roster, expertise, integrity, and commitment to service excellence,” Ellison stated. “I look forward to building on this 'Built to Last' legacy and steering the company towards new horizons of success. Our focus will continue to be on providing exceptional value to our clients, nurturing our team’s development, and exceeding the industry benchmarks that have set us apart.”

Benchmark remains committed to its vision for strength developed through relationship building and results that clients can count on.
