CEO Travel Security

November 14, 2022

The CEO of a U.S. publicly traded professional services firm had a planned trip to an Asia-based subsidiary. Shortly before the trip, the Asian subsidiary received an anonymous threat of violence from what was believed to either be a former employee or an aggrieved spouse of an employee. The CEO was determined not to cancel but agreed to a personal security detail. The CEO and the other executives with whom he was travelling were met at the airport, escorted by specially trained executive protection operators and drivers and accompanied at all public events while in country. At the request of the CEO, the protective team maintained a low profile while attending meetings, dinners and several receptions but still ensuring that the CEO and his team were secure.
