AT-RISK International, LLC, a leader in executive protection, consulting, investigations, biosecurity and security training services, announced today the opening of its new office in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Andreas Karki, a seasoned expert with in-country experience and a detailed understanding of the security situation in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), will lead the company’s efforts in the region providing oversight of the firm’s consulting, protection and operational security including direct support of client matters. The firm’s global team of professionals will continue to service clients across all countries in the region obtaining insight into the concerns for businesses already operating in EMEA, or those businesses considering expansion to the region. Having a permanently stationed team in the region will ensure more direct client interactions in real-time.
As security remains a primary concern for many businesses in the EMEA region, demand for AT-RISK’s services has never been greater. Due diligence and risk analysis continue to drive the foundation of the firm’s work to help ensure the safety and security of personnel and facilities. Significant business risks stemming from political and economic conditions, reconstruction and foreign national travel remain top of mind for AT-RISK and its clients.
The Dubai office will work with clients that have multiple service needs, focusing on reducing security risks for organizations and individuals operating in EMEA. In addition, AT-RISK will offer a range of security, market entry strategy and intelligence services for multi-national organizations and high-profile individuals. The same consulting practices that have made AT-RISK a reliable name within the industry, will be available in the region including executive protection, risk assessment, biosecurity, travel security, expat briefings and background investigations.
‘Operating in Europe, the Middle East and Africa requires an inclusion of security at every stage and choosing a trusted and experienced security provider is key,’ said AT-RISK President Chuck Tobin. ‘AT-RISK’s ability to provide immediate and significant intel in the region to our clients has always been a top priority and having a team that is cognizant of cultural differences between countries and regions helps to ensure successful relationships are developed.’
Mr. Karki joins AT-RISK as Director of Operations in EMEA. He is based in Dubai and has more than 15 years of experience in the private security sector having worked on large, multi-cultural assignments in Scandinavia, Europe and the United Arab Emirates. With Mr. Karki’s extensive background and multi-lingual abilities in Scandinavian, English and Arabic, he is poised to lead AT-RISK’s EMEA expansion efforts.
‘The opening of our Dubai office enables our team to work with individuals and businesses operating in EMEA face-to-face on a daily basis,’ said Mr. Karki. ‘Our experts are extensively vetted, trained and proven to protect people, businesses and assets. We are excited to build upon our strong worldwide relationships to further our commitment in this region.’
