Sandra James

CEO & Founder

Sandra James

Hard work and long hours come naturally to Sandra, having spent her childhood waking every morning before dawn to milk cows on her family’s Nebraska farm. That experience prepared her well for the life of an entrepreneur and she opened her first business, a mortgage credit reporting company, in 1989.


Ten years later, increasing demand from clients for background checks led her to expand into the background screening world. In 2010 she expanded again, adding the subsidiary 4506-Transcripts.com to meet the need for banks and financial institutions to verify income for borrowers through the Internal Revenue Service.

Sandra has built Private Eyes into a global firm. She attributes her success to remaining true to her core commitment offering high-quality, personalized, efficient customer service while continually adopting new technologies to meet client’s needs.

A passionate advocate for entrepreneurship, Sandra shares her expertise with other women business owners through WBENC. She previously served on the WBENC Board and has been an active member of the Board of Directors of WBEC-Pacific for over a decade.
