EPISODE #34

AIRED: 01-31-2020

Blake Percival is considered by many to be one of the most important whistleblowers of all time, even winning an award for his bravery. What he did was expose dangerous flaws in the nation’s security clearance system.
Prior to that, Blake graduated from High School in Montgomery, Alabama in 1984 and served 6 years in the U.S. Army where he was Honorably discharged at the rank of Sergeant in 1992. He then worked as a Police officer in West Virginia and Alabama.
From 2001-2011, Blake worked for USIS, also known as United States Investigations Services, where he rose through the ranks to the position of Director. USIS was a Company contracted by the government to conduct National Security Clearance Background Investigations on prospective and current Federal employees.
Blake became a Whistleblower in July of 2011 when he exposed that USIS was billing the U.S. Government for background investigations that allegedly had not been properly reviewed. For 4 1⁄2 years, Blake was not allowed to talk about the case, but once it settled in December of 2015 that changed, and he was featured on the front page of The Washington Post as a Whistleblower.
Blake is now sharing his experience in his new book, “Holding on to Integrity and Paying the Price – A Whistleblower’s Story”, which is due to be released on March 2, 2020.
Blake is the founder of The Whistleblower Assistance Fund and donates a portion of the books’ proceeds to help future Whistleblowers with financial needs during the legal process which can take years.
Blake now spends his time speaking regularly throughout the United States on leadership, integrity, business ethics, faith, motivation and is considered a leading authority on the vetting process and investigations.
