We’re thrilled to announce Cory Louie has joined Checkr as Chief Trust & Security Officer, where he will lead information and physical security, risk and compliance, privacy and strategic trust initiatives. Cory will serve as a member of the Executive Team, reporting into Daniel Yanisse, our CEO and co-founder.
Cory joins Checkr at an inflection point in our business as we continue our trajectory as the leading provider of modern and compliant background checks. In four years, we've scaled to run 1.5 million background checks per month for more than 10,000 customers, supporting the hiring needs within the sharing economy, enterprise companies, and other organizations.
“There’s a huge disconnect between safety/security and the traditional pre-employment vetting processes, it’s an opportunity for us to evolve how we think about trust as the way we work continues to change,” said Cory Louie. “My focus at Checkr will be expanding our platform and technology to further modernize the speed, accuracy, completeness and trust of background checks. I’ve always been passionate about helping people and applying my skills at organizations with a higher purpose, and it’s awesome that I will continue to do both at Checkr.”
Cory was most recently Chief Security Officer at WeWork, Chief Information Security Officer at Planned Parenthood, and The White House, where he also managed the White House Personnel Security Office, including background checks and clearances for all White House staff. He also had previous security leadership roles at Dropbox and Google, protecting the data of millions of users, thousands of employees, and distributed offices and data centers around the world. Cory started his career as a Special Agent with the United States Secret Service, where he investigated many types of cybersecurity cases and developed an advanced security protection mindset.
“Trust and security are core to our mission. Cory’s expertise across personnel, cyber, and information security will be invaluable as we look to further scale Checkr’s technology platform and expand into new industries,” said Daniel Yanisse. “I’m looking forward to his strategic leadership as we move into the next phase of Checkr’s innovation and growth.”
We’re excited to welcome Cory to the Checkr team in one of our most important and impactful roles. You can learn more about Cory on LinkedIn.
