SMA is pleased to introduce John McTighe, Executive Vice President of Background Screening Division at Data Facts as our presenter for our fall breakfast seminar.

John has more than 25 years of professional leadership experience. He joined the Data Facts team in 2019 when they acquired Background Decision, the background screening business he developed and built from the ground up.  He has consistently delivered double-digit growth each year during the past 15 years while also improving efficiency, quality, & compliance.

McTighe is also an active member of several industry associations including the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS), the National Consumer Reporting Association (NCRA), and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). He is a frequent speaker on the background screening industry and screening best practices at human resources and multi-family housing events around the country.  John proudly holds an Advanced FCRA certification from the National Association of Professional Background Screeners.
