True Hire Welcomes Screening Industry Expert Kevin Horval as General Manager

Uniontown, Ohio—True Hire is thrilled to announce the addition of screening industry expert Kevin Horval who has recently joined the True Hire team. Horval is serving as the new general manager for the background check company based in northeast Ohio.

Horval has been in the background screening industry for more than 15 years, managing everything from automation to vendor networks. Additionally, he has been heavily involved with the Professional Background Screening Association (PBSA) acting as the co-chair of the Access Subcommittee previously and Government Relations Committee currently.

The position of general manager is a newly created position at True Hire, inspired by Horval’s specific skills, experience and expertise in the background screening industry. Company CEO Stephanie Froelich had worked with Horval previously and was impressed by his involvement with the PBSA and after reconnecting through a mutual colleague, Froelich and the other executives at True Hire decided that Horval would be the prefect addition to the True Hire team.

“We thought Kevin could bring a lot of different skills to the table and he wanted to take on more responsibilities than a director of operations, so we created this position specifically for him, and he will definitely make a huge impact here at True Hire,” said Froelich.

As general manager, Horval will be overseeing the entire business, from managing operations and assisting clients to helping with sales and marketing, and brainstorming ways to continue improving all aspects of True Hire.

“I had wanted the opportunity to be more involved and engaged in everything going on every day in a company,” Horval explained regarding what intrigued him about the general manager position at True Hire. “I was excited about getting in on the ground floor, helping determine where the company’s going to go next, being a kind of owner in the process and contributing to those next steps.”

In addition to his first-hand experience working in background screening, Horval also frequently presents on industry topics at industry conferences and virtually via webinars. He holds professional certifications in Lean Six Sigma, PBSA Basic and Advanced FCRA Training, & Foundations of Leadership Excellence from the Harvard School of Business Publishing.

Horval shared that one of his favorite aspects of the background screening industry is that it is constantly changing, so there is always an opportunity for learning new information and growing in your expertise. He also greatly enjoys being involved with the PBSA.

“As I’ve gotten involved with the industry association, I love how everybody’s just willing to help each other out and willing to share to a certain extent. The industry is very cordial considering we’re at competition,” said Horval.

In his free time, Horval is active in his community volunteering with A Kid Again, and the Catholic Youth Organization as a basketball coach. He is passionate about his northeast Ohio roots and wants to ensure these vulnerable communities are protected which coincides with True Hire’s mission to protect.
