Security Services Company Opens Mexican Office

The Steele Foundation : 14 January, 2010  (Company News)
The Steele Foundation has opened a further Mexican office facility in Monterey to cater for demand in consulting services, investigations and protection assignments
Responding to a spike in client demand and violence that has destabilized regional security conditions, The Steele Foundation, a global provider of investigative, consulting and strategic security services, today announced plans to expand its world-class services in Mexico City and Baja California with a new regional office and operations hub in Monterrey focused on security consulting, protective services and emergency response for businesses with operations in the vital Monterrey market.

"Recent months have been marked by a worrisome increase in the level of violence in Monterrey - and by the brazen nature of these acts," said Greg Pearson, Chief Operating Officer at Steele. "Organized crime organizations throughout the region have tightened their grip and have no regard for foreign business operations and their associated personnel. Steele's expanded footprint in Monterrey will enhance personal safety and access to security services for our clients and their family members on a daily basis."

Thousands of US and other multinational companies and major manufacturing facilities are based in Monterrey, the capital of the state of Nuevo Leon and second largest city in Mexico. Security conditions have deteriorated throughout the area over recent months as criminal groups have taken firmer hold of territory, fostering increased risk for kidnappings and other related violence. "The rules have changed and personal safety is clearly under threat. Multinational companies are paying attention to the need for appropriate security not only for their top executives but also for their family members," said Pearson.

Recent estimates place Nuevo Leon among the top five most criminally active areas in all of Mexico. Foreigners and Mexican nationals alike have been among the victims of homicides, carjackings and real and "virtual" kidnappings in the region. Monterrey continues to present a significant business opportunity for both Mexican and Multinational business interest. Reflecting significantly increased demand for business advisory and Risk Management services, Steele has tripled the size of its operations, resulting in expansion and growth throughout Monterrey and its surrounding commercial base.

Last year Steele launched FirstCall, Mexico's first full-service vehicle tracking and 24/7 emergency roadside assistance service and has seen that core service more than double in membership over the past year. The company also provides personal and corporate vulnerability assessments, security consulting and plan development, crisis response and executive protection, with overall operations experiencing similar growth in the last twelve months, including notably increased demand for support in the Monterrey area.

Steele's Mexico City Command Centre houses a staff of bilingual intelligence and crisis response advisers trained specifically to manage incidents and advise clients on threat conditions. The centre makes use of cutting-edge technology and a number of back-up and redundant systems to ensure that FirstCall and Steele can constantly communicate with FirstCall subscribers, Steele clients and with government officials in the event of an emergency.

Steele provides the largest footprint of emergency services to corporate fleet and individual vehicles in Mexico City, Monterrey, and along the Mexican-American cross-border region, covering 660 cities and 130 highways including high-growth areas such as Nuevo Laredo, Ciudad Juarez and Tijuana. Clients can also subscribe to Global Rapid Response, which provides regional incident management, evacuation services, and intelligence services. In a related move, Steele recently announced a new alliance with MedjetAssist, the nation's leading emergency medical evacuation membership program, jointly offering clients a unique portfolio of enhanced travel and expatriate medical and security services throughout Mexico.
