About BenchMark Resume




Richard W. Dickinson | Founder and President


Dick established BenchMark Advisors in 1995, putting to use his broad background in management and marketing, and years of experience and education in the general practice of landscape planning, administration and management.


Through BenchMark, Dick gradually began specializing in creative conservation strategies including Limited Development, which utilizes easements and other conservation tools to encourage the protection of significant open space. Now Dick enjoys working closely with landowners, developers and consultants to incorporate an environmentally sensitive approach to a wide variety of development and design applications.


Prior to embarking on his own endeavor, Dick worked for 23 years as a Managing Principal with Edward D. Stone Jr. and Associates (EDSA), an internationally known firm of planners and landscape architects. At EDSA, he pioneered the concept of Pre-Development Project Management and frequently represented the firm at major industry meetings on the topic of The Team Approach to Planning.


Dick graduated with a Bachelor’s in Landscape Architecture from the College of Environmental Science & Forestry at Syracuse University. He has been active in many civic and professional organizations frequently serving in leadership roles. Currently, he is an active member of the Urban Land Institute and serves as a member of the Recreational Development Council.
