Strategic move enhances Pinkerton’s local points of contact with global connectivity to resources

Pinkerton, a global provider of comprehensive risk management services including security consulting and investigations, executive protection, employment screening and protective intelligence, has acquired Poland-based IBBC Group, the leading company in Poland and Central East Europe in risk assessment, optimization and support for the decision-making process.

Pinkerton President Jack Zahran made the announcement. “The risk landscape continues to rapidly change and evolve, and as we continue to identify global threats impacting business continuity, we recognized a need to expand our footprint in a way that enhances our ability to view risk holistically from a global standpoint,” said Zahran. “Acquiring a well known and highly respected risk management services provider like IBBC Group with an established presence throughout Europe furthers Pinkerton’s ability to provide local services and solutions while leveraging resources from all over the world.”

IBBC Group’s team of lawyers, investigators, analysts, IT engineers and experts from various industries offer clients complex consulting services and solutions in all fields and industries—including background screenings & due diligence, business intelligence & investigations, crisis management, forensic & litigation consulting, security management & consultancy, and political & security risk analysis. Headquartered in Warsaw, the company mainly services a geographical area encompassing Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine, Russia and Germany.

“Pinkerton is a storied organization with a history of identifying new and emerging threats that can prevent businesses from accomplishing their objectives and then designing strategies to help clients meet those risks head-on,” said Bartosz Pastuszka, director of IBBC Group. “We’re eager to partner with Pinkerton and align our resources in order to help clients more thoroughly protect their assets, their people, and their brands.”
