This type of service is aimed to companies which need to vet, verify or otherwise better understand the background of an executive before he/she joins the company.
In such cases, where the hiring could be direct or stem from a corporate deal, such as an acquisition or a merger, we are normally tasked to double check the veracity of what the executive states about his professional background. With the executive’s authorization we confirm the subject’s background by contacting all relevant parties in the position to provide evidence of the information we need to check. This type of assignments normally include a broader internet search to complement the verification process.
If the client wishes, we can interview the executive to clarify certain points which may have not been possible to independently confirm or to deepen certain information to better understand its nuances.
The process can either be fully transparent or a bit more discrete, but in either case it is important for our client to know that, for a relatively inexpensive exercise, they followed the best practices and fully complied with any internal or external legal requirements.
This type of services are aimed to allow companies get the most information possible, in a legitimate way, before making a critical decision. Our pricing suits the need of all companies, including SMBs, which are typically the type of company that cannot afford huge expenses.
By hiring us for a corporate due diligence, our clients can be reasonably sure that there are no uncovered aspects of the context they need to understand – and if unknowns are still far from resolved, we help our clients get the clearest picture possible. We take a conservative view, which typically turns into a prudent scenario analysis.
All published and publicly available information is analyzed thoroughly with the help of dedicated software tools and our personal dedication. Charts, timelines, documents, maps, articles, a large amount of databases, all sources are scanned and analyzed to build a scenario as objective as possible. Our analysts are trained to guide our clients through the nuances which may condition the outcome of an analysis in a specific country or even region or sector, and are able to look at complex contexts through a balanced approach based on years of experience.
