The HBS Association of Southern California presents A Former CIA Officer’s Guide to Vetting People in Your Life.

How well do we really know the people in our life? From business partners to partners in life, many of us don’t even do any due diligence on the most important people in our life. This is event is for anyone who is taking money from investors, contemplating a business merger or acquisition, hiring a board director or executive, and even those who are looking for that special someone in their personal life. This event will guide you through:

  • How to spot red flags in people you deal with, whether checking potential business partners or employees, investors, nannies or even love interests.
  • Investigative tools available, including legal limitations
  • Social Media Tips to maximize success when researching someone
  • Google Ninja Tricks – advanced search parameters to get specific information

Participants must register by November 11th to receive details on joining the discussion.

Please note that no refunds will be issued.



Marc Hurwitz

President, Crossroads Investigations

Marc Hurwitz attended SUNY Buffalo for a B.A. degree in Political Science, and The George Washington University for a M.A. degree in National Security Policy.

Marc began government service with Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, and continued in the U.S. Department of State’s Human Rights Bureau. He then worked in the White House for three years, where he served as the aide to the Deputy National Security Advisor. Marc went on to become a counter-terrorism officer for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and later worked for the government in multiple overseas posts, including war zones, earning several commendations for meritorious service.

In 2008, Marc opened Crossroads Investigations to sub-contract for retired CIA Chiefs of Stations with corporate due diligence contracts. Crossroads has since expanded into a full-service Private Investigation and Due Diligence firm, named by the Daily Business Review as the top Private Investigation Agency in South Florida for the last five years.

Marc is a Florida Board Certified Investigator, a National Board Accredited Investigator, and a Certified International Investigator.
