Minor Red Flags that Add Up to a Pattern of Behaviour in a Key Hire

A publicly traded company in the resources sector retained us to examine the background of a senior prospector they were considering to manage a major exploration project.

The individual had excellent credentials and was very experienced; however, our research identified numerous drinking and driving infractions across a number of years and in multiple jurisdictions.

Individually, these specific charges were inconsequential with respect to the position he was being considered for; however, the pattern of behaviour was of concern to the Board.
