Corporate Investigation Case Study
The following case studies represent our work as a due diligence investigation company.
Due to the covert nature of the industry, client names are proprietary; however, the following case study represents a cross section of international investigations recently conducted on behalf of Kreller clients.
North America, Manufacturing
A multi-national corporation with subsidiaries in trade and manufacturing engaged Kreller to conduct due diligence on a third party consultant. Reference inquiries were stellar, registration and licensure were clean and media research revealed no derogatory information on the consultant.
However, in-depth research regarding the consultant’s business affiliations revealed that he co-owned a sports facility with a family reportedly infamous in the local area for being involved in crime for decades.
One of the family members had been sentenced to prison for sexual abuse of minors and another charged with death threats and assault on more than one occasion, amongst other crimes. The principal, himself, had been charged with multiple vehicular offenses including two for Driving under the Influence. As a result of our investigation, the client did not proceed with a consultancy contract with the third party.
