Benchmark Group is sad to announce the death of our Founder & Chairman, Paul C. Parks, P.E.  He is survived by his wife Janet Parks and their son, Charles Parks. 

Paul founded Benchmark Group (then Paul C Parks Engineering, Inc.) in Rogers, Arkansas, on April 3, 1978, as a Sole Proprietorship offering electrical engineering services.  He later incorporated the business with the purpose of sharing ownership with his Staff.  Under his leadership, the company has grown to be a respected Engineering and Architectural firm with more than 170 employees.  Paul instilled a tradition of family first, quality practices, and customer service.  He believed in always doing the right thing.  He will be missed by all those who worked with him over the years.

The firm continues under the leadership of President, David P. Kimball, P.E. 

Condolences may be sent to the Paul Parks Family in care of Benchmark Group
