About Us

Heartland Investigative Group began in Minneapolis in 1991, when founder Paul Jaeb saw that the Twin Cities' top lawyers, corporations and financial institutions needed a new breed of professional partners.

He's since assembled some of the nation's premiere investigators, forensic experts and agents. We're client focused and relentlessly committed to offering our clients the clear-eyed, timely and cost-effective facts and services they need to make smart decisions and reach successful outcomes.

Thomas Jaeb
Today more than ever, companies understand the critical need of developing comprehensive and material background information on potential new hires and possible business partnerships. But the facts may be well hidden in a frustrating trail of misinformation built over time. Extreme due diligence requires expert analysis, peeling apart complex layers of data. When our clients need high-level background profiles, Heartland goes to Tom Jaeb and his fifteen year track-record of getting results.

As Vice President at our Minneapolis office, he’s respected for his leadership, research abilities, clear communication and consulting/teaching proficiency. His clients have included law firms, banks, insurance companies, investors and hedge funds. Tom has extensive experience in asset investigation, skip tracing and competitive intelligence.

Tom is a Certified Identity Theft Risk Management Specialist. He is a member of the Council of International Investigators. His public speaking engagements include presentations for the Minnesota Bar Association, Lorman Education Services, the National Business Institute, the Independent Community Bankers Association of Minnesota and the National Association of Credit Managers among others.
