As one of the first members of Benchmark International's office in the U.S., Mrs. Hooshmand has grown with the company in a range of roles alongside the Chairman, CEO, and International Directors. She worked with the Chairman and CEO to open the headquarters in Tampa in 2012.
Emily develops and implements comprehensive marketing plans for valuation workshops and domestic and international conferences. The invitation-only, confidential valuation workshops are tailored to each business and are designed to help business owners understand the current value of their company. The conferences allow Benchmark International to showcase our latest sell-side opportunities, network with existing and new buyers, remain current on deals and recent activity in the M&A market, and promote overall brand awareness. Prior to her role as Conference and Workshop Events Director, she spent more than six years on the transaction side of the business. Specifically, she prepared clients for market by tailoring professional and informative marketing materials that highlight the strengths and opportunities of their businesses. She has assisted more than 100 clients across an array of industries, from the initial engagement period to data management and due diligence. Between 2017 and 2018, she assisted the team in successfully closing 24 transactions.
Among her successes at Benchmark International include the sale of Rx30 to GTCR and deal of ComputerRx also to GTCR. The team was able to achieve a rich multiple for the client. That same multiple was reached in the following sale of ComputerRx.
