San Ramon, CA, September 12, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- NetForce Global®, a trusted leader in wholesale international background screening, announced today their newly appointed Corporate Board. Board Chair and company co-founder, Ed Etzel, said, “Our new board is comprised of industry experts, with the purpose of providing guidance to address rapidly evolving worldwide data privacy and compliance requirements.”
Over the past five years the international background screening landscape has dramatically changed. Demand for international background screening has grown at a significant pace driven by human capital demand. In addition, the exponential increase of worldwide data privacy legislation has challenged both domestic and multinational background consumers. As a result, background consumers are renewing their focus on human resource management and compliant processing practices because the risks associated with non-compliance are significant.
In response to these challenges, NetForce Global formed a Corporate Board made up of four industry thought leaders who will provide a high level of expertise as NetForce Global provides its customers with reliable compliance solutions.
Ed Etzel, Board Chair, is recognized as a pioneer of global background screening; he co-founded NetForce Global to become a leading international background screening wholesaler. Ed has held executive positions at a leading global background provider, NetRiver Inc. and Intermec Technologies; he had a long tenure at HP as a senior manager.
Fred Giles, Company President, is a former Chair of the global industry association, NAPBS; he has extensive expertise in background screening, held positions in law enforcement and has broad experience in the interpretation of compliance requirements.
China Gorman, Board member, is a widely respected human capital management executive, and the former CEO of the Great Place to Work Institute® as well as COO of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). China currently sits on 3 additional company boards bringing value of those experiences to the new Corporate Board.
Greg Prow, Board member, a practicing attorney, has an extensive background in global compliance issues from his past employment, before retirement, at Ernst & Young. In his previous role he focused on the interpretation of international tax laws and transitioned tax knowledge to related technologies.
Company President, Fred Giles, commented, “Our new board members’ backgrounds cover international law, human resource management, background screening and compliance. They will enable NetForce Global to maintain our position as leader in Continuous Global Compliance Management™.”
