Securitec Accelerates Client-Focused Growth Initiatives
Hires Seasoned Executive to Support Customer & Partner Expansion
Roanoke, VA and Raleigh, NC, December 8, 2016 - Securitec Screening Solutions, a leading wholesale background intelligence and Court Data as a Service (CDaaS) firm, today announced the hiring of Chad Lafon as Vice President Sales & Business Development. As a member of the executive team, he will help shape and execute expansion efforts with customers, partners, technology innovation and new markets.
Securitec has experienced profitable growth over the last five years from its strategic investments in research staff, facilities and its Synaptec™ Court Data as a Service Platform. Securitec continues to invest in building a leadership team in support of its rapid expansion.
“Every investment we have made in Securitec has been squarely focused on helping our CRA and professional screening clients drive accuracy, efficiency and cost savings into their operations,” states Jessica James, CEO of Securitec. “We know that if we maintain a relentless focus on helping our clients that it will pay dividends for all parties.”
Jessica adds, “Chad has been an active member of our advisory board since 2011 and has proven to be a strategic asset. He has helped us with technology innovation, marketing, recruiting, financial performance management and capital financing. He is a Roanoke native, Virginia Tech graduate and brings 20+ years of business and technology experience from leading firms in the Research Triangle Park and Silicon Valley. Chad is based in Raleigh where our Synaptec™ software engineering team is located and still has family ties to Roanoke. He is a perfect fit and trusted advisor to help us execute our business plans.”
“I am thrilled to join Securitec in this role to help them expand in support of increasing market demands,” says Chad Lafon. “Jessica and the Securitec executive management team have an exciting vision for the future, including new market offerings. I have already met with several Securitec clients, and it’s clear they view Securitec as a partner; not a vendor. I have been fortunate in my career to learn from leaders in fast growing private, public and VC backed technology firms. I am excited to apply all of that experience to help Securitec clients, partners and shareholders.”
Chad Lafon began his career with EDS as a systems engineer working on global software development projects. He progressed into consulting, sales, and business leadership roles including his own private ventures. He has served on the Securitec advisory board for the last 5 years. Prior to Securitec, he held business development leadership roles at other technology firms including Host Analytics, Longview Solutions, Ultimus, Sapiens International and Nevalon Technologies.
