Our Story

Tracy Shatus, founding Partner and CEO of Global Background Screening got her start in the background screening business, when her father, Bill Jones, a Military Police Veteran owned and operated a multi-state private investigation agency.  In the late 1990’s before background screening was even an “industry” - she worked part-time at her dad’s private investigation business while attending college.  


When people needed information on someone, they would usually be referred to a private investigator to do a “background check” on someone that they were considering hiring, or dating, etc.  They were receiving more and more inquiries to do background checks and Bill decided to open a separate division of his private investigation business dedicated solely to background screening.  He put Tracy in charge of the project, making her his business partner.  And so began the tedious task of figuring it all out!


Some 25 years later, Tracy and her skilled team of investigators and technology partners figured out how to modernize and simplify the background screening industry.

The GBS mission is to create the simplest, yet most powerful compliant screening platform in the world.
