Benchmark Society

Become a Member

Inspired by the longevity and success of the University of Tulsa’s Friends of Finance, the School of Business at OC launched The Benchmark Society to develop deeper connections with the Oklahoma City business community.

As a member, you can hear from leaders in the field, speaking on their experience and offering advice.

In September, you will hear from Preston Ackerman, Special Agent/Cyber Security at the FBI.

Preston Ackerman began his career as a Special Agent with the FBI in 2003 with his first office assignment in the Chicago Division. Ackerman’s career has focused on cybercrime investigations and IT project deployments. He is currently assigned to the FBI's Oklahoma City Division Cyber Squad and has served as the program coordinator for computer intrusion matters covering the state of Oklahoma.
