ESR Leadership Team

Brad Landin

President & Chief Compliance Officer

Background screening industry veteran Brad Landin joined the Employment Screening Resources (ESR) management team in April of 2011 and assumed the role of President in September of 2011. He is responsible for all aspects of the company’s strategy, operations, and finances. He brings more than 35 years of management experience in both the private and public sectors and over 25 years of experience in regulated industry compliance matters.

Landin has spearheaded ESR’s rise to being “The Background Check Authority®” and the only screening provider offering automated real-time compliance. The ESR Assured Compliance® system uses the fully automated ESR Applicant Generated Report® (AGR) system to constantly update screening reports with required changes in hiring and employment laws. ESR makes compliance with new screening regulations virtually painless in a totally paperless environment.

Under Landin’s leadership, ESR successfully completed a stringent Service Organization Control 2 (SOC2) audit that found ESR maintains security, confidentiality, and privacy of screening system data. This SOC 2 report ensures ESR meets the current high standards set by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) to protect customer and third-party information. ESR has all appropriate controls in place to secure and protect information systems and databases.

Before joining ESR, Landin worked in the screening industry since 1999 and was instrumental in making an industry startup one of the top 25 background screening firms as measured by revenue. Landin also has extensive experience in background screening operations, as well as legal compliance, and is an active participant in the Professional Background Screening Association (PBSA) – formerly known as the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS) – the background screening industry trade association, including a role in their lobbying efforts at the federal and state levels.

The most selective companies trust ESR to manage their screening programs.

Employment Screening Resources® (ESR) is a global background check firm that is a strategic choice for employers who need accuracy and compliance in their background screening programs.

ESR is accredited by the Professional Background Screening Association (PBSA) – formerly the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS) – and undergoes yearly SSAE 18 SOC 2® Type 2 audits to ensure the privacy, security, and confidentiality of consumer information.
