"I am proud to join the Forte Investigations team. 20+ years and 5000+ exams in the polygraph industry has taught me there are three important things a good examiner must do. First, be highly skilled and remain current with advances in the field. Second, use quality equipment that is maintained and calibrated regularly for accuracy. Finally, educate the client about polygraph to ensure the best experience. Paul Hyland and I promise to provide these three things with every polygraph we do." - Rick McHugh
