IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 9, 2011 – HireRight, a leader in employment background screening and drug screening solutions, today announced the appointment of Steven Spencer as vice president of transportation solutions and head of its transportation business unit.
"Steven's appointment is a significant step in strengthening our capabilities and commitment to the transportation industry as we look to expand on our more than 30 years of knowledge and expertise in serving the screening needs of motor carriers through our DAC Trucking brand," said Mike Petrullo, HireRight president and CEO.
Mr. Spencer joined HireRight Solutions (then USIS Commercial Services) in 1999, and has helped establish the group as the acknowledged leader in its field, providing a wide range of services including the unique DAC Employment History Database, the only such resource of its kind. In 2008, he was promoted to senior director of transportation sales, where he headed all customer relations and sales efforts for transportation customers, giving him firsthand, day-to-day experience with the background checking and drug testing demands of motor carriers as well as other transportation industry segments.
"We work closely with our customers in everything we do," said Mr. Spencer. "Currently, our business unit is responding to two important customer demands. The first is the need to make screening faster and more efficient through the application of technology and integration. Secondly, our customers are faced with managing a huge amount of data and regulatory requirements, plus analyzing that data to determine how it fits into safety programs like CSA. They need a trusted and reliable partner to help them manage their programs, provide actionable information, and support their efforts in meeting compliance requirements."
HireRight is responding to customer and industry demands with the release of a new background screening and drug testing management solution designed specifically for the needs of transportation companies. This new solution is scheduled to be unveiled later this month.
"We're extremely excited about the future as we look to provide customers with more value and options, ultimately helping them to hire the very best talent, maintain compliance, and keep the roads safe," said Mr. Spencer.
