Author Gordon Basichis discusses on The Opperman Report two of his more controversial books and how he co-founded background checking firm, Corra Group.

"Nick and I started from modest beginnings," said Corra Group Co-Founder, Gordon Basichis. "“Now we conduct employment screening, corporate research, business intelligence, and due diligence domestically and globally."


Gordon Basichis, Co-Founder of Corra Group, was interviewed recently by Ed Opperman for The Opperman Report. The two discussed on Opperman’s radio show, Basichis’ two most controversial books and his co-founding of Corra Group, which specializes in employment screening, corporate research, and due diligence background checks.

Basichis is the author of Beautiful Bad Girl: The Vicki Morgan Story, the story of department store scion, Alfred Bloomingdale and his long time mistress, Vicki Morgan, that raised an international scandal in the early eighties. He is also the author of The Guys Who Spied for China, which depicts in part the earlier establishment of Chinese Espionage Networks in the United States that have become so controversial today.

“It was a lot of fun interviewing with Ed Opperman for his radio show, The Opperman Report, said Corra Group Co-Founder, Gordon Basichis “Ed is a private investigator and a good interviewer, so he is well versed in a variety of subjects that we were discussing.”

Beautiful Bad Girl has made a lot of noise over the years, as it depicts the sensational and obsessional love affair between Alfred Bloomingdale and his mistress, Vicki Morgan,” said Basichis. “Bloomingdale was a member of Ronald Reagan’s kitchen cabinet, and the affair had far reaching implications, some of which defined the sexual and social mores of the eighties.

The Guys Who Spied for China depicted some of my experiences uncovering Chinese Espionage Networks in the eighties and nineties. Of course today our American relationship with China, be it the military threat, the persistent espionage, or trade wars, is garnering almost daily headlines. I believe my book helps describe the oft used refrain, “The Past is Prologue.”

Basichis pointed that in his own life past events led him to ultimately co-found Corra Group with his partner, Nick Gustavson. Basichis noted that the two started their business modestly in a spare bedroom, and over fifteen years they have expanded its footprint domestically and internationally. They are now headquartered in offices in El Segundo, California.

“Nick and I certainly started Corra Group from modest beginnings,” said Basichis. “Now we conduct employment screening, corporate research, business intelligence, and due diligence in the United States and just about every country in the world. The recent radio interview helped me galvanize my thoughts about it all. It helped me see how it all came together.”
