Danbee CEO Barry Brandman to address HARDI Conference on how Undercover Investigations expose white and blue collar crime

Share Article

Undercover investigations have been providing senior executives with valuable intelligence for many years. The CBS hit show Undercover Boss has shown how effective “going undercover” is at identifying security and operational problems.

We have been quietly conducting undercover operations for over 25 years. However, with the popularity of Undercover Boss, it’s become a hot topic.

The upcoming HARDI (Heating, Air-conditioning & Refrigeration Distributors International) Operations and Logistics Conference (http://hardinet.org/operations-logistics), being held September 20 – 22, 2015 in Baltimore, will feature Barry Brandman, CEO of Danbee Investigations. His presentation,“Undercover Boss – Distribution Center Edition”, will explain how undercover operations inside corporate America have exposed fraud, embezzlement, inventory loss, cybercrime, workplace substance abuse as well as operational problems that can significantly impact profitability.

“We have been quietly conducting undercover operations for over 25 years. However, with the popularity of Undercover Boss, it’s become a hot topic”, explained Barry Brandman.

“An undercover investigation is essentially like taking an MRI of your business, allowing you to see beneath the surface and learn what is really taking place. I think that’s why so many of the CEO’s who have appeared on Undercover Boss found it to be one of the most significant experiences of their careers. Even those who considered themselves extremely hands-on admitted that the insight they gained from going undercover was extraordinary, much more than they ever expected to learn”.

“Undercover investigations have identified how millions of dollars were being drained from company bottom lines. Many of these problems had been going on undetected for months and even years before undercover exposed them. By eliminating these problems, companies have been able to operate more efficiently and profitably”.

“In the CBS television program, the CEO personally goes undercover. Obviously, this isn’t a realistic option for most. However, senior executives can receive the same intelligence by having professional operatives placed inside their companies. At the upcoming HARDI Conference, I’ll explain how to get the most out of an undercover investigation by using actual case histories taken from our files to illustrate the points I’ll be making”.
