About VeriScreen

Bringing You Over 25 Years of Background Screening Experience


How We Started

The story of VeriScreen begins 25 years ago when our founder
decided that employers needed to feel more safe and secure within their workplace. Mark was a
graduate of the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University, and realized that local
companies struggled with unreliable and inaccurate background checks. He had a passion for
local nonprofits that helped children, and strived to build a better background check for them.

After founding VeriScreen and hiring highly qualified FCRA Advance Certified local research
analysts, Mark partnered with the Evansville Boys & Girls Club of America to provide them with
high quality background screening of potential volunteers. VeriScreen has grown tremendously
since then, but Mark is in our office every day, often sipping an Italian espresso and cracking
jokes with employees while ensuring we still meet the high standards he has set for his company.

VeriScreen was founded to keep employers, children, and families safe, and Mark prides
himself on the exceptional quality of background screening services his company provides. At
VeriScreen, we value safety, reliability, and customer service. We offer a no false positive
guarantee and our researchers answer our phones within the third ring. VeriScreen has
completed hundreds of side by side tests with competitors, each time ending with results in our
favor. We never back down from a challenge, and our internal motto is “Our answer is yes, what
is your question?”. VeriScreen continues to improve and excel, thanks to Mark’s true passion for
the background screening industry and its members.

“We turn challenges into opportunities” 


Keys To Our Success

Our Identity Verification Process is Unmatched

We do not rely on the applicant’s stated address and an inexpensive credit bureau name and DOB search. 

We use numerous person search databases to properly identify your applicant. Examples include US Mail, utility deposits, cell phone records, and many other databases. 

We accumulate all the names and name variations as well as DOB variations. All of the results are then processed in the highest quality criminal database.

Making a Difference

Holly's House and More

Our Chairman of the Board was one of the founding board members of a facility called Holly’s House. Holly’s House is a non-residential child and adult victim advocacy center. Its mission is to empower victims of intimate crimes and abuse by providing support, promoting justice and preventing injustice. In addition to continued financial support, VeriScreen selected Holly’s House as the recipient of their annual fundraiser to give back to the community. The entire staff of VeriScreen helped organize and participate in the fundraiser, and it was not only financially successful, but resulted in good feelings for everyone to help an organization in the community. Holly’s House helped over 600 victims in the past year.

Over the years the VeriScreen team and its individual members have consistently been mindful of the needs of others and participated in philanthropy and volunteering, including being board members, participating in the steering committees of several non-profit organizations, and contributing to a wide variety of local, regional, national and international outreach efforts. The following is a list of organizations and efforts impacted by the VeriScreen family’s energy, resources, and efforts (i.e. more than just an annual membership) over the past 5 years.
