HireRight, a provider of employment background screening and drug screening solutions, announced the appointment of Steven Spencer as vice president of Transportation Solutions and head of its Transportation Business Unit.
Spencer joined HireRight Solutions (then USIS Commercial Services) in 1999 and has helped establish the group. 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.
In addition, HireRight says it 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.
“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,” says Mike Petrullo, HireRight president and chief executive officer.
