CROSSMARK History

OVER 100 YEARS OF “CAN DO”… AND COUNTING

Crossmark History1905 – Willis Johnson and E. Leslie Hunt founded Johnson & Hunt Merchandise Brokers in Ft. Smith, Arkansas.

1985 – After eight decades of growth and a name change to SALESMARK, our company continued to build on its foundation of strong leadership with extraordinary people and a “can do” spirit.

1996 – During the consolidation period of the sales brokerage industry, SALESMARK merged with The Gordon Company and the Phillips Brokerage Company, and the name was changed to CROSSMARK.

2000 – 55 mergers and acquisitions later, CROSSMARK proudly became a national leading force in the industry.

Today - Our people, expertise, and innovation continue to enable us to develop better growth solutions for our clients.

The heritage of strong leadership with extraordinary people and a “can do” spirit is as strong today as it was over 100 years ago.
