Background Check Company, Private Eyes, Adds Senior Executives

WALNUT CREEK, Calif., Jan. 30, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Private Eyes, Inc., a leader in background checks and pre-employment screening, announced today the hiring of two senior executives, Kevin Gillen and Michael Borchard.

Gillen has been named Director of Supply Chain Strategy and Borchard, VP of Business Development. Combined, they have a strategic plan that will expand their clientele in all sectors they service including healthcare, transportation, and financial, which is aligned with the company’s goal of 100% growth for 2017. They will also emphasize their attention on Private Eyes’ sister company,, which specializes in retrieving IRS 4506-T forms on behalf of banks, mortgage companies, and law firms.

Previously, Gillen was Executive Vice President and Head of Retail Strategy and Solutions at TD Bank, one of the U.S.’s 10 largest banks, and Money Magazine’s “Best Big Bank” for 2013 and 2014. In his last position, his experience included managing a $32 billion U.S. consumer lending portfolio.

“Kevin’s 30 plus years in the banking industry, developing and managing relationships throughout the east coast, combined with his leadership skills, will bring tremendous value to our team,” Private Eyes Founder and President Sandra James said. 

Borchard has an extensive background in business development and leadership roles, most recently as an account executive with printing companies River City Printers and Pacific Standard Print, an RR Donnelley Company. Throughout his career, he has consistently acquired major accounts and exceeded sales goals. 

“Michael is a top-performing sales professional. His ability to thrive in competitive and evolving industries will make him a strong leader for the company,” James said.  

The addition of Gillen and Borchard comes after the company transitioned to a new, mobile-friendly platform for its clients last year, laying the groundwork for growth of the business.

“We already serve more than 500 clients ranging from SMBs to Fortune 500 companies, helping them make a safe workplace possible, and now we’re ready to serve more clients,” James said. “Adding top-tier talent to our leadership team was a critical part of our growth strategy.”  

With unmatched customer service, new technology and quality control processes that result in less than .5% dispute rate on more than 10 million background checks completed.
