About Us

Headquartered in the United-States, our group was co-founded by an American International-Security specialist and a US Special-Forces certified 28-year veteran of the French Special-Forces. This allows us to bring together a wide range of capabilities in providing our American and European clients elite security-services in high-risk regions worldwide.
