Managed Integrity Evaluation (MIE), the largest background screening and vetting company in Southern Africa, is pleased to introduce Michelle Baron-Williamson as the company’s new Chief Executive Officer. As Michelle Baron-Williamson takes up the baton of Chief Executive, MIE retains founding member Ina van der Merwe in a key strategic role for the business.
Michelle Baron-Williamson joined the executive team of MIE in June 2017 and has spent the last year becoming more entrenched within the business and team. Her many years of industry expertise and experience in management roles – across information technology and business industries – will assist in enhancing MIE’s systems, products and service offerings further to the market.
Having successfully grown the MIE brand in becoming a true leader in the background screening industry, Ina van der Merwe is redirecting her focus within MIE towards driving the sales side of the business and has taken up the role of Sales Executive Officer at MIE, effective from June 2018. She will use her wealth of knowledge and deep-rooted experience in the background screening industry to champion the sales of the solutions she played such a key role in developing, as well as new products, as the company continues to innovate and expand its market offering.
Vivian Pather, Head of Information Services at EOH, says: “In her CEO capacity, Ina’s leadership and industry expertise has undoubtedly been the driving force in the success MIE has seen over the years. As we look to grow the business further, we are very pleased to retain Ina, where her depth of knowledge and passion for the industry continues to offer immense value to the business and its operations. We are also excited to formally introduce Michelle who brings with her years of experience and new ways of thinking that we believe will certainly build on the foundation that Ina has laid and position the business for future growth.”
“The company looks forward to the positive impact Ina and Michelle’s continued contributions within their respective roles, will bring to the business, as MIE continues to press forward in meeting market background screening and vetting needs, in support of helping organisations make more intelligent people and procurement decisions,” concludes Pather.
