Cisive, a background screening provider focused on employment background checks and compliance services and backed by GTCR, has added Larry Neal as chief executive officer.

Neal has experience leading growth strategies across the data and technology industries. He recently served as the president and co-founder of GoExpedi, an online energy procurement services provider. Prior to founding GoExpedi, Neal spent approximately 20 years in senior leadership roles at S&P Global. Most recently, he served as president of the commodity price reference agency, S&P Platts, where he drove growth and nearly tripled the revenue of the business during his tenure.

“His wealth of knowledge in expanding technology platforms through digital and data analytics improvements makes him the ideal executive to lead the highly talented team at Cisive,” states Aaron Cohen, managing director and head of financial services and technology at GTCR. “GTCR has a longstanding relationship with Larry and we believe his deep experience in driving growth at technology and data companies will be invaluable to Cisive and its customers.”
