Why Comprehensive Screening of Executive Hires is Vital
Corporate executives, board members and senior level partners reflect the very essence of a company or brand. As high visibility individuals, they present the face and voice of the organization to internal and external stakeholders, including customers, employees, the media, competitors and community at large.
The quality of an executive’s character and their leadership abilities exert a profound influence on an organization’s image, security, success path—and bottom line. The higher and more visible the position, the higher the risks, and the more critical it is to conduct a detailed validation of credentials.
