In 1989, he transformed the background screening industry when he founded InfoMart. InfoMart produced high-quality, fast, automated background reports at a lower cost, revolutionizing the sector. A decade later, he founded the Association of Consumer Reporting Agencies, which preempted government regulation and served as a catalyst in moving the background screening industry toward self-regulation. In 2010, Cohen created Cohen & Company, which transformed how Human Capital Management (HCM) companies service their clients’ needs to confirm the qualifications of job candidates by designing, developing, and integrating automated background screening solutions into recruiting management software.
