Guidepost Solutions, ("Guidepost") announced that it has acquired SafirRosetti, effective April 30, 2010, bringing together a management team with a wide spectrum of experience across all facets of the security industry. As part of the transaction, Guidepost Investigations and Security, a provider of investigative and security services, will be integrated into the combined company.
SafirRosetti has experience and product offerings in accounting and computer forensics, investigations, as well as sophisticated security engineering for new and existing facilities and operations. The Guidepost management team brings significant market experience in monitoring and compliance. Existing clients for the combined company span the public and private sectors, and include large corporations, law firms, governments, hospitals, universities, hotels, professional sports organizations, among others.
"This transaction brings together a management team that can offer experience, advice and service to clients unlike any other firm in the industry," said Guidepost Chairman Bart Schwartz. "I am thrilled to be working alongside industry leader, Joe Rosetti, as well as other senior team members, to offer clients, in a one-stop-shop, a set of expertise in investigations, monitoring, forensics, compliance, and in the high growth security engineering industry, where more sophisticated crimes and heightened global terrorism call for highly developed solutions. Additionally, the convergence of technology and security means that clients are demanding consultants who can design complicated systems that address risks now and in the future. Our combined leadership is better situated to address those issues."
The Guidepost team is comprised of highly skilled professionals with experience in law enforcement, private security, public safety, the military, technology, engineering, management and the intelligence community.
