FALLS CHURCH, Va. – Altegrity, Inc.—the global screening and security solutions provider—has appointed Explore Information Services president and CEO J. Philip Casey as chairman of the Altegrity Commercial Services Group, which consists of HireRight, a leader in on-demand employment background and drug screening, and Explore Information Services, an industry-leading insurance information services business. Mr. Casey, who has led Explore since 1998, will continue as Explore president and CEO. Mr. Casey reports to Altegrity CEO Mike Cherkasky.

Michael A. Petrullo, currently an Altegrity senior vice president, will assume the role of president and CEO of HireRight and will report to Mr. Casey. Steven W. Webb, Explore’s vice president of market development, will assume the new role of senior vice president and general manager of Explore. Glen E. Schrank, who has been serving as president and CEO of HireRight, will leave the corporation to pursue other opportunities.

“HireRight has grown significantly over the years, and this accomplishment is due in large part to Glen’s professionalism and dedication,” said Mr. Cherkasky. “I wish Glen all the best.”

“Looking ahead, I am excited about the opportunity to leverage the combined capabilities of our businesses to create even more customer value while driving financial success,” said Mr. Casey. “Mike Petrullo and I—together with our Explore and HireRight leadership teams—will develop new ways to use the unique strengths of both companies for the benefit of our customers, employees, and investors.”  
Prior to Mr. Petrullo’s arrival in March 2009, he served as senior vice president and chief administrative officer of Marsh & McLennan Companies (MMC), and served on the executive and expansion committees of the company. During this period, he led the MMC corporate center restructuring team and played a leading role in the turn-around of the insurance brokerage division of MMC, Marsh Inc. This included leading efforts to rationalize the business and implement a new business model following the filing of a complaint against the corporation by the New York Attorney General. Mr. Petrullo was also responsible for the successful integration of Kroll Inc. into MMC after its acquisition by MMC in 2004.

Earlier in his career, Mr. Petrullo served as chief operating officer and chief financial officer, among other executive assignments, at Kroll. As part of these responsibilities, Mr. Petrullo was responsible for numerous successful acquisition and merger transition efforts.
