Fifth Year Benchmark Has Been Placed on the Prestigious List

The Woodlands (Houston), Texas, September 10, 2014 - Benchmark Hospitality International®, a leading U.S.-based hospitality management company, has been named for the fifth year to the "Inc. 5000 List of America's Fastest Growing Privately-held Companies."  For the past 33 years, Inc. has welcomed the fastest-growing companies in the United States into the exclusive List, whose members grew on average last year at a mind-boggling 516 percent.  The Inc. 5000 List represents a comprehensive look at one of the most important segments of the United States economy - independent entrepreneurs and the companies they've built.  The Inc. 5000 list is an expansion of the popular Inc. 500 list.  

"The last five years have been truly special for our company," said Alex Cabañas, president & CEO of Benchmark Hospitality International.   "Being honored nationally by Inc. Magazine as one of America's Fastest Growing Companies, and a simultaneous statewide honor as one of the best places to work in Texas, only makes it sweeter for our team.  While we certainly don't measure our success only in terms of growth, it creates opportunities for our employees to build their careers with Benchmark.  That is perhaps the most important byproduct of our last five years of success".

Benchmark Hospitality International experienced significant growth over the past several years, bringing the total number of hotels, resorts and conference centers within the company's Benchmark Resorts & Hotels' and Personal Luxury Resorts & Hotels' brands to 40, with annual revenues across both brands within the $500-750 million range.  

The company has complemented this growth with a multi-million dollar investment in sales training and mentoring initiatives, the addition of professional talent, sales and guest services technology and communications, and innovative mobile and social media programming.  

Inc. Magazine approached Benchmark Hospitality International and invited the company to once again request consideration to be included on the prestigious Inc. 5000 list.  Benchmark recently learned of the company's acceptance for the fifth year as part of the national "Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Companies List."  As a member of this highly respected list, Benchmark Hospitality International shares a prestigious position with some of the most successful companies in America.

Inc. has for 33 years been the premier publication for entrepreneurs and business owners. In 1982, the magazine introduced the Inc. 500 List, which showcases the fastest-growing, privately-held companies in the United States, later expanding the list to the Inc. 5000 List to help readers gain a deeper understanding of America's bright entrepreneurial landscape.  Inc. Magazine's listing of America's fastest growing companies in 2014 appears at
