Gary Lincoln-Hope, Group CEO
We have assembled the finest executive team, meticulously selected from top flight police, security and specialist intelligence communities both in Africa and UK.
Our mission has been to recruit an operational management team widely acknowledged to be in the top 5% of their respective professional peer groups, and amalgamate them with a simply unrivalled team of security operatives, surveillance officers and security technicians, to deliver a capability that is truly world leading. This provision is now up and running in Kenya.
However, the incredible talents of the global network of informers who offer unparalleled access and accurate ground truth in the context of political affiliations and corrupt allegiances of the territories in which they report, can not be overlooked. Nurtured over years of loyal service and handled by the members of XFOR team who bought their skills to the table, they afford anonymous and reliable information which is otherwise unavailable to the private market.
Together, the three component parts to this first rate team ensure XFOR Kenya maintains its position as the global leader in the theatre of investigation, information gathering and risk management.
We are XFOR!
