Diligence expands into the Middle East
US-based firm Diligence has established a new subsidiary in the Middle East, focusing on security services for Iraq and growing the company's array of information collection and analysis services in the Persian Gulf region.
The new subsidiary, Diligence Middle East (DME), will build on the success of the firm's Baghdad office, which opened in July to provide security services to companies involved in Iraqi reconstruction.
Diligence's activities in Iraq have grown to encompass payroll protection and delivery around the country, personnel and facilities security, due diligence on potential Iraqi business partners and companies, screening of local potential hires, vetting, training and management of security personnel for guard work and close protection services, and the provision of daily intelligence briefs.
As it expands its operations, DME, will benefit from the business experience of its newest partner, the Kuwaiti- based Al-Mal Investment Company. — (menareport.com)
