Abbe Groffman, Director of Marketing, Berg Consulting Group

Grab a latte and pull up a chair and join us for a great interview with Abbe Groffman, Director of Marketing, Berg Consulting Group.

Abbe shared that she has known Bruce for several years and was always impressed with his success and work/life balance. She admired how Bruce was vehemently dedicated to family and community as displayed by his commitment to many philanthropic activities.

One day the two of them started talking about my interest in rejoining the corporate world and Bruce kindly brought me into Berg Consulting Group.

Before returning to the corporate world Abbe was a stay at home mom raising her two delicious kids. Before this she worked in Product Management at Kraft Foods where she managed the Jet Puffed Marshmallows and Kraft Caramels businesses.

Having come into the background screening industry I asked her what she liked about the industry, she said, ”I love that everyone I have met is extremely bright and genuinely dedicated to furthering their business, the industry’s interests and elevating the industry’s position across customers and government legislators.”

Turning the conversation to the company I asked her to share the company’s mission and vision. She said, “The Berg Consulting Group mission is to use our years of industry knowledge to help our clients’ business grow and prosper. The team’s respectful and honest guidance ensures your business life becomes everything you’ve dreamed it should be by offering the best vetted, most accurate and quickest solutions on the market for all your background screening needs. Integrity rules our business philosophy and commitment ensures we plump up your bottom line!” She added, “The Berg Consulting Group truly is the go to for anything related to background screening, M&A and guidance on developing a healthy screening business that is primed for growth.” She also shared that Bruce and the team are constantly reviewing and improving their products. They stay abreast of news and business happenings within the industry.

Abbe noted that ”As a provider to the Background Screening Industry, we are continuously looking to partner with CRAs who want to grow and soon Berg Consulting Group will be introducing two new exciting products that will help CRAs increase profitability, grow revenues and strengthen customer retention.”Even with some prodding she wouldn’t give me a hint about the new products so stay tuned.”

Looking to the future, she offered that “Perhaps applicants will take background checks into their own hands – walking into a job interview with an existing, pre-qualified background check on themselves they can hand (or scan) to the potential employer.”

Turning our dialogue back to her personally she shared that she had recently read Follow the River by James Alexander Thom and MONEY Master the Game by Tony Robbins.

The people she would most like to meet are her great grandparents and my ancestors before them!

Her favorite quote is “The more I live, the more I learn. The more I learn, the more I realize, the less I know.” Michel Legrand.

Thanks to Abbe for a very insightful and interesting interview.
