Brandon Abbey on Behalf of Escrow.com has issued a statement in response to the recent departures of Andee Hill & 2 Other Employees, which quit last Friday to go a newly formed competitor EscrowHill.com which was announced on Monday morning.
Here is Mr. Abbey’s statement unedited (emphasis added):
“Escrow.com appreciates the inquiries and support it has recently received from its valued customers and friends. ”
” The company takes the confidential nature of its business very seriously, and we will use every means at our disposal to protect the proprietary information of our business and the earned confidence of our customers.”
” We understand that there are many choices in the marketplace, and we promise to continue our efforts to remain the most trusted and independently operated internet escrow service in the world.”
“Every employee at Escrow.com has executed and is subject to a Confidentiality, Non-Competition, Conflicting Employment, Assignment of Inventions, Trade Secrets of Others, and Non-Solicitation Agreement. ”
“We fully expect the terms of those agreements to be honored. ”
“The company is committed to maintaining the highest standards of confidence that our customers have entrusted to us. ”
“As Always, we intend to utilize every resource at our disposal in order to preserve and protect that trust.
“On behalf of all of the employees at Escrow.com, we thank you for your continued confidence, your business and your trust.”
So this is pretty interesting, seems like the ex-employees of escrow.com did sign a non-compete and other agreements with the Escrow.com which means we may not have heard the last on this issue.
