Global Verification Network Announces Acquisition of RedRidge Verification Services

Global Verification Network (GVN), is pleased to announce it has acquired the assets of RedRidge Verification Services (RVS) on January 1st of this year.

Mr. Mark Buchmann, who had been a part of RVS since its earliest stages, will head GVN as its new CEO.  He helped RVS establish a foothold in the screening industry before moving on to RedRidge Capital Advisors and other, more progressively responsible roles within the RedRidge portfolio of companies. Prior to joining RedRidge, Buchmann held multiple management positions within the IT and Banking industries. He is a proud U.S. Navy veteran, and brings many of the life and leadership lessons learned during his six years of service to his country to the GVN management team. Buchmann has a Bachelor’s Degree in Information Systems and an executive MBA from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Business. Mr. Buchmann is excited to apply his military, business and academic experiences to GVN. 

Buchmann stated, “We saw the acquisition of RVS as the cornerstone of our strategy to deploy top-quality professional services to those organizations who are seeking superior customer service, true subject matter expertise, and a consultative, partnership approach which GVN brings to bear in providing risk mitigation through the propagation of its screening services. GVN will continue to focus its efforts on its core client constituencies in the healthcare, financial services, housing and technology sectors by providing the same outstanding service, quality results, and incredible dedication to its clients that have been the hallmarks of the RVS brand. It is our dedicated staff of investigative professionals which sets us apart from our peers in the screening industry and makes this company so unique!”

GVN retained all of the existing RVS personnel as part of its asset purchase which ensures ongoing service continuity to its client base.  COO and licensed private detective, Mr. Christian Moore, remarked “Keeping this group together in order to provide the highest level of customer service and professionalism was a key issue for me during the negotiations of the asset sale. Every member of this team is absolutely critical to our ongoing success and continued growth and I am honored and blessed to be surrounded by such talented, customer-centric co-workers who are simply the cream of the crop of the screening industry!” When further asked about the company Mr. Moore responded “First and foremost, we are an organization designed and dedicated to providing a superior level of customer service — and it is our heartfelt desire to carry this core principle forward, now and into the future.”

GVN has clients throughout the nation and stated that their corporate headquarters will remain in the Chicagoland area.  In addition to its existing office in Florida, GVN will also be opening offices in Raleigh, NC and the greater Philadelphia, PA area with more planned for the following year.
