Sterling Talent Solutions acquires background screener Verified Person

September 08, 2016

Sterling Talent Solutions, a background screening and HR solutions company, acquired Verified Person Inc., a pre-employment background screening firm based in Memphis, Tenn.

The transaction closed in August; terms were not disclosed.

Founded by John Sculley, former CEO of Apple, and Tal Moise, Verified Person has about 45 employees and provides criminal background screening and identity verification services nationwide.

“We admire the hard work and determination Verified Person has demonstrated in growing their business over the last 10 years and establishing themselves as a market leader," said Sterling Talent Solutions CEO Clare Hart. “We are excited to welcome their team to the Sterling Talent Solutions family.”

Sterling Talent Solutions counts 20 offices in nine countries, with more than 3,700 employees and more than 50,000 customers worldwide. It is accelerating a multi-year expansion strategy following the June 2015 acquisition of a majority interest by the merchant banking division of Goldman Sachs and La Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec. Goldman Sachs and CDPQ replaced Calera Capital, a private equity firm based in San Francisco and Boston.

Sterling Talent Solutions in January merged with Seattle-based TalentWise, a cloud solution provider for the human capital management industry. And in May, it announced its acquisition of RISQ Group, a background screening leader in the Asia Pacific region. The company rebranded to Sterling Talent Solutions from SterlingBackcheck in June.
