    About Us

    Benchmark Community Bank is the largest bank focused exclusively on serving Southside Virginia. We have been around for 50+ years helping area citizens and businesses thrive. We are, always have been, and intend to remain locally owned and operated.

    Benchmark is a full-service, progressive financial institution that is integrally involved with each of the communities it serves. We hire local residents whose love of community mirrors ours.

    Members of the Benchmark family are also individuals who pride themselves in giving exceptional service. We love listening and always want to know what other community members are looking for in a financial institution. We gather this information regularly so that we can make the right decisions on new products and services. By right decisions, we mean, of course, what the people in the community want and need.

    This year, Benchmark was once again named one of the top 200 community banks in the country by American Banker magazine. There are nearly 5,000 community banks nationwide. This is just one example of the many times that Benchmark has been recognized for its excellence.
