Joe and David first met in 1982 while selling courier services for Priority Dispatch.  In 1984, they became business partners and acquired their own logistics company, Express Courier International, Inc. that started with 2 employees (themselves), 5 independent contractors and $380k in revenue. Over the next 22 years, Joe and David invested their time and personal capital into building a leading, regional logistics provider. They accepted an offer in 2006 to sell Express Courier International, Inc., which had grown to 135 employees, 750 independent contractors and $32 million in revenue.

In 2009, Joe and David started a new business venture, Background Verification Services (BVS), a licensed investigative company that specializes in employment screening and hiring solutions. In 2011, the company was rebranded to Confirm Choice, LLC. Joe and David have built a strong management team which consists of four employees who worked for them previously at Express Courier. Joi Schurman, Director of Operations; Laura Lawson, Accountant; Angie Johnson, HR & Client Relations Manager; and David Peneguy, IT Manager. Treating our clients the way we want to be treated is what we do. We believe it, we live it and we stake our reputation on it. Our entire team is FCRA certified and we look forward to continued growth and providing excellent service.

Confirm Choice does all of our Felony background checks. The level of service and communication has been fantastic! I find the management to be accessible and responsive when we have had a need that was beyond the normal scope of our business relationship. They are always there when we need them. The quick turnaround time, the accurate and easy to read background reports, and the proactive customer service of Confirm Choice have had a huge impact on the day-to-day operations of Relay Express. I would recommend this service to any of my peers in the transportation industry.”][pt_testimonials_type2_item name=”QCS Logistics” post=”Jason Burns, President” text=”Before using Confirm Choice, our drivers were responsible for obtaining his/her background information.
