New Leadership at eVerifile Readies Itself for Category Leadership
ATLANTA, Oct. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — eVerifile, acquired earlier this year by seasoned entrepreneur, Mark Wilson, along with partners, Frontier Capital, The Yucaipa Companies, Magic Johnson Enterprises and Plexus Capital, – has been working diligently for the last two quarters to prepare for its re-emergence as the category’s leader. Critical to communicating that position is the selection of a national agency with deep experience in the risk assessment and workforce solutions space on an enterprise level as well as within the company’s core verticals. Headquartered in Atlanta, Trevelino/Keller will focus on three core strategies – thought leadership, category disruption and vertical positioning.
A leader in employee background screening, compliance testing, vendor and security management, eVerifile has expertise in risk sensitive industries including healthcare, biotech, utilities, railroads, transportation, sports and event venues, and gaming. Almost three quarters into the acquisition, CEO Mark Wilson is assembling a strong management team and deeper expertise in those verticals that have the highest growth potential.
“We have a great turnaround story to tell. We have acquired a brand with tremendous potential, and today we have the capital and resources to scale it,” explains Mark Wilson, President and CEO of eVerifile. “We selected a partner who has a track record of working with companies who are scaling rapidly and intent on disrupting the category. After a thoughtful search, we selected Trevelino/Keller.”
Recognized as one of the top 30 firms to work for in North America, Trevelino/Keller is often sought by rapidly ascending companies in need of a strategic partner that cuts across public relations, branding, social media and marketing.
“We were impressed with Mark and his team from our initial meeting. His success as an entrepreneur, his ability to bring together influential capital partners and his idealistic and realistic notions of category disruption, drew us to the organization and its potential,” explains Dean Trevelino, principal, Trevelino/Keller. “Of course, we are equally excited about the opportunity to work in an industry whose significance has yet to be fully appreciated.”
