Staying attentive to what matters takes experience and discipline.

In the two and a half years since we launched IntegrityRisk, we’ve heard a steady stream of questions from clients and colleagues about how to navigate the shifting risk terrain. What strategies make the most sense when it comes to meeting the letter and the spirit of evolving regulations? When are we comfortable recommending automated, technology-based products — and when is it smarter to apply the powers of human reason and analysis to diagnosing risk?

In other words, how do we stay focused on the fundamentals? Here’s what our leadership team says:

Jim McWeeney - Founder & CEO

“My focus is on ensuring that our team and client base is always clear, and excited about, where IntegrityRisk is headed. Successfully steering the company through a shifting regulatory environment and in the strongest IPO market in the world puts a lot of demands on the business. We aim to be an extension of our client by helping them proactively reduce their exposure to risk. After over two and a half decades in the business, it’s never been clearer that waiting for a problem to surface and then scrambling for a solution is far too costly: that’s true whether we’re talking about staying ahead of the curve internally with our own business decisions or when it comes to the diagnostics around identifying the best solution for our customers.”

Turning our original vision of IntegrityRisk into reality, while keeping everything running smoothly, means staying focused on securing the functionality of our business. My goal is to continue driving our research, diligence, and security offerings in a direction our entire team can get behind. That means calibrating and refining our company efficiencies in a way that balances our development of technology solutions with the need to always cultivate our human capital. Fortunately, my previous work in law enforcement and global due diligence was excellent training. There I learned the art of managing the overlapping requirements to support and grow our global network of resources, all while making sure our team always has the best tools to succeed.”

Linda Huang - Global Head of Research Operations

My focus is simple – do everything possible to be sure that the quality of our research and the clarity of presentation of our findings are second to none. We start with hands-on training and continued development of our team of analysts, not only emphasizing the need for thorough, accurate research, but also providing constant guidance on how to conduct insightful analysis of all findings so clients do not have to weed through useless details in order to get to the information they need. Each report undergoes a strict review process that aims to ensure quality of research – our goal is to answer all questions before clients even think of them – but may also include rewriting and reorganization so that all findings and analysis are presented as clearly as possible. We know our clients are often pressed for time and, as such, our goal is to provide them with the information they need in a well-written and well-presented report each and every time. Experience has taught us that this is what clients desire, and our flexibility allows us to quickly and capably meet each client’s individual and specific needs.

Dorian Baker - Global Head of Sales

When it comes to meeting with clients to talk about our spectrum of due diligence and risk management products and services, my initial focus is on listening closely to the challenges they face. This approach comes largely from my time spent on the client/buy side at a large financial institution engaging with similar types of companies. Only once I understand what problem it is they’re trying to solve and what their specific needs are can I move to the next step: recommending a customized approach. My deep and longstanding subject matter expertise together with a keen understanding of the full spectrum of our diligence products allows me to tailor a solution that I’m confident our clients will appreciate and value.
