He is also one of the few security professionals to hold the international designation of ‘Certified Protection Professional’ (CPP) and with his unique blend of skills he delivers outstanding results for his clients.
Tony commenced his investigation career in the New Zealand Police rising to the rank of Detective working in a number of specialist units including fraud.
Since then he has successfully investigated several hundred external and internal fraud cases, a few involving international jurisdictions. On one occasion obtaining a private settlement in excess of $18 million.
