Examples of Armand's work include:
  • Led the delivery of pre-incident program development and training for clients around incidents of extortive crimes, including kidnap-for-ransom, by working directly with the senior management teams of hundreds of clients, from Fortune 500 corporations to smaller business, non-profit organizations and high net-worth individuals and families.
  • Served as the primary facilitator and instructor for all of Control Risks’ kidnap-for-ransom incident management workshops delivered to clients in North America.
  • Led the response to a Fortune 500 company that activated Control Risks through its SIR insurance policy based on suspected criminal facilitation by an employee in Mexico.  Led the investigation to identify perpetrators, gather evidence and perform site-security reviews to help the client mitigate the risk of future incidents.
