It strengthens our prominent position in the United States and underlines AKE’s commitment to our US clients. This dedicated office will enable us to continue to support clients in the region, as well as developing our business throughout Latin America, in line with our strategy for global expansion.”
The first company of its kind, AKE was set up in 1991 to address the specific needs of personnel previously unprepared for work in high-risk environments. The company has grown significantly in the last 15 years to offer companies and organizations around the world a level of hostile environment training unsurpassed in the industry plus associated risk management and political/security intelligence services.
Founded by a former member of the elite Special Air Service, the company takes a holistic approach to risk reduction by analyzing threat, investigating and educating on the ways to mitigate risk and providing direct support should the client require it.
Headed by Executive Director Tim Crockett, the office will act as a regional hub for AKE Group's operations in the Americas and will build on the company's extensive track record in the media, energy and finance sectors. The company will initially concentrate on the development of regional marketing, sales and support teams in a preliminary growth phase to address current and growing business.
“Atlanta has become a major strategic business hub for AKE over the last few years and is destined to become a springboard for future growth,” stated Tim Crockett, Executive Director.
AKE’s new offices are located in Marietta, one of Atlanta's principal business districts.
