London Corporate Senior Management Investigation Case Study
Corporate Senior Management Investigations, is there a conflict of interest with one of your senior management team and their current role?
This is the case study from our latest London Corporate Senior Management Investigation. Titan Investigations’ London office located at 86-90 Paul Street, London, EC2A 4NE received a call from a large London based corporation who believed that one of their directors was acting in direct conflict with his role but needed evidence as to whether this was the case. It was suspected that the director was potentially mentoring 2 employees who formerly worked for the business before being made redundant. They were directly line managed by the Director whilst they worked for the company and they appeared to have an inappropriately close relationship with the director which had been noticed by a number of employees. The previous employees had incorporated a company operating in the same industry as our client and there was a worry that sensitive information such as stakeholder details could be divulged, and introductions made. The Director had direct access to this information and due to the inappropriate relationship between the former employees, it was a genuine concern.
Corporate Senior Management Investigation – Investigation Process:
Titan Investigations met with the client for a free, confidential consultation away from our London office due to the high profile of the client to ascertain the full information, agree on an investigation plan, intentions, the subject’s work schedule and a budget.
A period of surveillance was agreed over the period of a week where all work commitments, off-site meetings and social events would be evidenced utilising a team of highly skilled surveillance operatives in an array covert of vehicles.
Titan’s surveillance operatives mainly come from law enforcement and military background, working previously on counter-terror operations where national security is at risk and investigating serious and organised crime syndicates. However, we also employ civilian surveillance operatives with a wealth of commercial experience. Since 2016, to meet operational demand, Titan has developed their own surveillance training programme where we mould and develop civilians from varied backgrounds into seasoned operatives.
Our operatives are able to fit into any environment and remain covert. We use the phrase, “It’s acceptable to be seen but not noticed.”
The surveillance commenced in Central London and initially, there was a lot of downtime waiting for the subject of the enquiry to leave the confines of the work address. During this time the multiple exits of the work premises are eagerly monitored whilst the rest of the team wait like coiled springs. This is probably the hardest period for any surveillance team, remaining alert and not gaining attention from 3rd parties or worse still, the Police.
The operation was a complete success and the team acted remarkedly, remaining professional at all times, recording the subject’s meetings and gaining video evidence to back up the evidential log and final report.
We were able to not only evidence association between the subject and the former employees, but also the mentorship, introduction to key stakeholders, website development, representing the newly incorporated company at networking events, and an extramarital relationship with one of the former employees which were no doubt his motivation.
Corporate Senior Management Investigation – Final Outcome:
The Director was removed from the business after being found guilty of gross misconduct at an employment tribunal, shares purchased at a reduced value and a contract preventing contact with the company’s clients and stakeholders for 12 months.
