Know Your Executive Team sm
In this era of increasing scrutiny of executives and boards of directors, thorough and extensive analysis of executive candidates is a must. Screening executive hires has become an essential tool to help a company’s corporate governance and protect it’s Board of Directors from unethical and illegal activities.
What we do
Infortal specializes in a Best Practices Executive Due Diligence; we look at the profile of candidates from many angles, learning about a candidate’s reputation and behavioral history, seeking out both embellishment of education and work accomplishments, or falsification of information in addition to their criminal history and civil litigation issues, including SEC violations.
What is Executive Due Diligence Used For?
Additionally, Executives are under increasing pressure to perform successfully in Year 1. Hiring the right person with the skill sets you need is only part of the picture; they need a support structure that enables optimal performance; this is key information for you to know about. Additionally, we are looking for problems, issues, trends and themes in their history, not just the basic facts. People that want to hide their issues will often do so brazenly.
Your business reputation and bottom-line profits may be at serious risk if your executives are not who they say they are, if they over-promise your capabilities to major accounts because they want to achieve quotas, or because they have unethical business practices, or are planted by a competitor.
Taking action after the fact may be too late for your business.
We sometimes hear from clients that they are not worried because the executive has signed a legal document. Unfortunately this does not help if the executive’s activity is exposed by a national media publication. Also how will you know whether there is important undisclosed information? Deliberately hidden issues and unresolved problems that the executive does not want to reveal to you often remain undetected through traditional executive recruiting efforts, where often only a few references are checked for an executive hire.
An executive’s signature on a legal document only protects you after the fact and does not ensure that they are disclosing the truth to you.
