Drew and Steve Hartz started Convergence Research in 2007 with the goal of being a technology-driven, 100% wholesale background research firm. During his two decades of experience as a software developer, Drew has seen the industry change numerous times as the technology of pre-employment screening has evolved. Prior to founding Convergence, he worked in many other industries including healthcare, insurance, banking and the public sector for both small businesses and Fortune 500 companies. He held roles encompassing all aspects of business software development including as an on-staff developer, technical team leader, lead architect and Chief Technology Officer.
