Entrepreneur, Asia Region Business Specialist Short Brings Global Risk Data, Compliance and Background Screening, and Law Enforcement Expertise to IntegrityRisk International

(Washington, DC) Integrity Risk International welcomes Mike Short, a successful entrepreneur with 30 years of Asian business experience, as a senior advisor and West Coast business development specialist. Since 2000, Short has co-founded and financed three of Asia and the Middle East's most successful risk data and background screening businesses, and subsequently exited all via acquisition by multinational market leaders or private equity firms. Short previously served as an inspectorate officer in the Royal Hong Kong Police where he specialized in criminal intelligence and Asian organized crime enforcement.

"I am excited to join this growing powerhouse in the risk management space," Short says. " I am particularly looking forward to contributing to the expansion of IntegrityRisk's reach into the US West Coast market for background screening and compliance platforms."

IntegrityRisk CEO Jim McWeeney said, “We are thrilled to welcome Mike to our team. Not only does he bring a more personalized focus to our West Coast customer relationships, but his expertise in data-driven background and compliance screening solutions will ensure that we can continue enhancing our full suite of business intelligence, due diligence, investigative, compliance advisory, and safety/security services.”
