Today is a very exciting day for all of us at SJV Data Solutions, where we announced the creation of our strategic data framework and the hiring of industry veteran Alicia Jones as Senior Director of Business Development to lead our effort to advance and expand our portfolio of emerging data solutions.
The employment background screening industry has evolved and grown by assembling information from a patchwork of sources.
Over the years, SJV bridged the gaps with platforms like SJV Connect so CRAs had quick, comprehensive and cost-effective access across these sources.
However, as these sources diversify and expand, democratizing (fun new buzzword for making it available to everyone) data is clearly the preferred solution and is one of our strategic initiatives. Aggregation and standardization will reduce the friction CRAs face when compiling background checks from multiple sources, reduce cost and promote growth.
You might recall earlier this year, SJV made a commitment to a collection of data product development when we announced the promotion of Nick Kelland as the company’s chief product officer as well as other strategic hires. The SJV team, together with Alicia in her new role is poised to release an enhanced portfolio of data solutions in the coming months.
Alicia most recently served as an executive for Tracers, Inc., a leading data provider for investigative and collections professionals. Prior to Tracers, she spent 15 years as Vice President of Sales at backgroundchecks.com where her success managing an impressive roster of enterprise clients earned her the respect and reputation of subject matter expert across the industry.
We're excited to have Alicia join our team in this essential role, making our investment in data solutions a cornerstone of the our continued growth.
