Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

As a senior analyst and international project leader, Expert facilitated the creation of disaster preparedness plans as well as companywide support for the implementation of the plan. By defining the potential risks in a given area, his assessments determine what level of mitigation is required in a given area, for a given threat. This methodology was used to integrate U.S. standards, across offices in a recently acquired business unit operating in 40 countries.

emergency management

Supporting a 50 billion dollar supply chain, he created a risk management program ensuring the client's top certification with US Customs CT-PAT (Customs Trade-Partnership Against Terrorism). His assessments also led a reevaluation of sourcing considerations as well as a diversification of international investment.

international sourcing

By creating his own methodology based on corporate and military experience, coupled with the evolving international business climate, he has created a new way of looking at risk that is applicable wherever a company has or is considering a presence, and potential outside entities that may cause them harm. Other methodologies omit the actual presence. These will implement the same level of risk mitigation whether an organization has 1 person or 100 in a given area, or whether they have a 20 million dollar, versus a 20 billion dollar investment.

Threats vary by the asset present in a given area and can include government reliability, infrastructure, corporate espionage, natural disaster, local crime elements, terrorist presence and others.
