About Us

SAS Data Retrieval


Seth worked as a researcher for a public record retrieval company prior to founding SAS Data Retrieval. While the other company was successful, Seth saw many opportunities to make changes that he thought would greatly benefit the clients, the end users, the operation of the company, and the industry overall. In 2015, shortly after graduating from business school, SAS Data Retrieval was born. The ideas such as constant communication, use of technology, and a different management structure were put into practice and received nothing but positive reviews from each and every client that we have had the pleasure to work with.


Seth Stapleton is the founder and CEO of SAS Data Retrieval. He has a B.S. in Business Administration with a minor in pre-law, worked nine years as a commercial diver, and served four years in the United States Air Force. Seth is a dedicated professional who sets a high standard for his employees, and for the services his company provides.
