How it all began...
HireSafe is now located in Elk Grove, California, but the company was birthed in the heart of Silicon Valley. This fertile area was once world famous for it’s fruit crops, and is now recognized as the “technology capitol of the world.” It was in the once sleepy town of San Jose that the famous Firato’s Delicatessen was established by Carlo Firato in 1922, now a registered national landmark.
That historical tradition of service and commitment to detail continues to be the beacon of direction for Data Research Network and HireSafe into the 21st century.
The formation of HireSafe in 1997 was the vision of Mr. Firato, who recognized the change in hiring trends inherent to the 21st century. Primary of those trends included the increase in frequency and size of judgments from liability-based lawsuits against employers who failed to perform their “due diligence” during the hiring process.
Mr. Firato began his career sweeping and stocking the Delicatessen shelves at age 10. He is a graduate of San Jose State University, and is a licensed California Private Investigator (PI #25313). Prior to forming Data Research Network, Inc., Mr. Firato enjoyed an 18 year career with Minolta Corporation as the Senior Account Executive in the Photographic Division for Northern California. He is the proud father of five daughters and lives with his wife and their child in Elk Grove, CA.
