Second UK Acquisition for CoventBridge Group
JACKSONVILLE, Florida, August 25, 2016
CoventBridge Group Ltd – the full service surveillance and investigative firm formed in March this year following the merger of GlobalOptions and ICS Merrill – has made its second UK acquisition in just six months.
R-ISC Investigation & Surveillance Company Ltd [R-ISC], headquartered in Cheadle Hulme, Greater Manchester has been acquired by CoventBridge Group Ltd. Founded by Sam Greer in 2007, R-ISC has an award winning reputation for industry leading surveillance services, enjoying high customer satisfaction and retention. The R-ISC team of accredited professionals joins the CoventBridge Surveillance Division, where Mr. Greer will have executive responsibilities.
Dave Merrill, CoventBridge Group CEO concludes: “In just six months and via our first two acquisitions, we have assembled the most experienced leadership team in the UK investigation industry. The acquisition of R-ISC demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the UK and European market and the enrichment of our offerings. Our focus to acquire further complimentary businesses and deliver additional services to our customers continues. I am pleased to welcome Sam and his team to the CoventBridge UK operation.”
Video documentation provides the best evidence available to identify fabricated or exaggerated claims, malingering claimants, or fraudulent activity. Clients can assign surveillance cases to CoventBridge online through its secure website 24/7. Prior to initiating surveillance, investigators establish the most effective action plan and timing of the operation. As skilled experts, they are able to defeat the vigilance of the most educated claimants; ethically obtaining video evidence whilst never violating an individual’s reasonable expectation of privacy. Case summaries and video footage are electronically submitted to the secure case management platform after each day of surveillance; keeping clients fully informed throughout the case and prior to provision of the final report and video evidence via the platform.
Sam Greer said: “I am delighted to become part of the CoventBridge Group and head up the UK Surveillance Division. With our combined proven operational capabilities and the company’s advanced case management and evidence delivery platform, we create the benchmark by which we believe all our peers will come to be measured.”
CoventBridge is backed by the London based Harwood Capital LLP, part of the Harwood Capital Management Group, with £973 million funds under management at 31 December 2015.
