Benchmark Hospitality International, which manages 29 award-winning resorts, conference centers and hotels in the United States and Japan, has announced the addition of French Lick Springs Resort to the company`s management portfolio. Sam Haigh, chief operating officer for Benchmark, made the announcement.

I am extremely pleased to welcome French Lick Springs Resort to the family of Benchmark-managed resorts and conference centers, stated Mr. Haigh. Located in French Lick, Indiana, the property has been the focal point of this historic resort town since 1902. Two companies with deep roots in Indiana, Cook Group, Inc., and the Lauth Group, have joined forces to form a joint venture, which will develop a $240 million destination resort, conference center, spa, and casino. Benchmark is honored to have been selected as the resort`s operating partner.

Cook Group, Inc., located in Bloomington, Indiana, is the world`s largest privately held medical device manufacturer, and the Lauth Group of Indianapolis is one of the nation`s leading development and construction firms.

Benchmark assumed management of French Lick Springs Resort effective April 13. The company immediately began assisting in the planning process for Phase One of the overall project development to completely renovate and restore the existing resort at an estimated cost of $80 million. Completion of the partially restored historic West Baden Resort, located near the French Lick property, will follow in Phase Two.

Haigh concluded with, Benchmark is proud to have been selected to work with the Cook and Lauth organizations on this exceptional project. We`re very pleased to welcome the 300-member team of dedicated professionals at French Lick Springs Resort who have been providing warm Indiana hospitality to guests over the years.
