A longstanding corporate client planned to onboard a new executive and asked Gryphon to run a comprehensive background check on the executive just days prior to the new appointment.

Gryphon’s review of public sources uncovered several troubling records under a previously unknown alias. Further investigation determined that the individual had spent nearly a decade as a career felon. After several inquiries with law enforcement personnel, Gryphon obtained certified documentation of the individual’s criminal history, including his four-year stay in a state prison.

Gryphon’s findings immediately dissuaded our client from moving forward with the appointment.
