Benchmark Technology Group, Inc. Names Hampton Hale VP of Business Development and Marketing

ALPHARETTA, Ga., March 12, 2024 – Benchmark Technology Group, Inc., a leading reseller serving financial institutions with IT services and logistics, banking equipment, and cash and check automation solutions, has added Hampton Hale as its new VP of Business Development and Marketing, effective March 4. Hale oversees go-to-market strategy and sales for an array of current and future Benchmark offerings. He also holds the same title at Avivatech LLC, a leading software business specializing in cash and check automation solutions for branch banking and retail environments and an affiliate of Benchmark.


Hale brings two decades of experience in business technology and software, most recently with Konica Minolta Business Solutions. In his previous role as Konica Minolta’s VP of National Sales Programs, he simultaneously managed several nationwide programs with a focus on business technology hardware, integrated software, and professional services, many outside the company’s historical lines of business.


Preston Herrin, Benchmark’s president, calls the move an important step in the company’s forward-looking plans. “As we move into a future where hardware, software and services are continuing to converge, Benchmark has actively diversified our business offerings to be more than just a hardware and logistics company. Hiring a leader like Hampton is a key component of our strategy and will accelerate our effectiveness in delivering managed services solutions to our customers. With Hampton’s leadership we will continue to create exceptional value for our customers in the coming years and beyond,” he said.


Hale is enthusiastic about the opportunity to take on the challenge of expanding Benchmark’s presence as the company moves in new directions. He said, “I’m focused on expanding our solution set to deliver value that goes beyond just products, to a complete managed services solution.  It is exciting to be a part of an aggressively evolving company like Benchmark with a great team of people and great opportunities in the future.”
