The Obama Administration’s vetting advisor for presidential candidiates, Douglas Graham, has joined private investigation and corporate intelligence firm Investigative Group International (IGI) as a managing director.

Graham’s leadership responsibilities within the Executive Office of the President included vetting presidential appointees, a complex and politically delicate process entailing extensive investigation of professional credentials and an array of sensitive legal, financial and reputational issues. Graham worked hand-in-hand with the White House Counsel’s office to ensure candidates could withstand Congressional scrutiny and meet the high ethical standards required of presidential appointees.

IGI’s highly analytical executive background investigations are designed to complement a client’s overall evaluation of a candidate, rather than focus merely on potentially disqualifying information.

Prior to working in his senior role at the White House, Graham served in multiple positions at New Partners Consulting, where he consulted on numerous successful Congressional campaigns and worked for tech companies.
