On behalf of a client looking to appoint a prominent businessman to a senior position at a newly-established fund, Nardello & Co. conducted a pre-employment screening to learn more about the background and reputation of the candidate. Several news articles linked him to allegations of contract irregularities at one of his former employers, a state-owned entity. Sources at the entity confirmed some of these allegations, adding that these had prompted the subject’s recent dismissal, a fact that had yet to reach the public domain. Sources stated there had been no suspicions of corruption, but management felt the job was beyond the subject’s capabilities. Sources within government circles indicated that the individual was an adept political player who maintained very strong connections within successive party administrations. A former colleague said the subject used his political connections to fight professional battles. Based on our findings, the client did not proceed with the appointment of this individual.
Nardello & Co. was engaged by a Fortune 500 company to investigate an anonymous allegation made to the board of directors that a senior executive had engaged in inappropriate conduct that could damage the company’s reputation and subject it to litigation. To investigate these allegations, Nardello & Co. conducted in-depth research in open sources, including social media, in an effort to uncover information that might corroborate the allegations and identify potential witnesses. Appropriate computers and electronic devices were forensically imaged and analyzed in an attempt to identify pertinent communications. Each phase of the investigation was conducted in a manner that did not interfere with the normal operations of the implicated business unit. No incriminating information was uncovered in the course of the investigation. Once relevant corporate personnel were interviewed, the company concluded that the allegations against the executive were unsubstantiated.
