Guidepost Solutions Notches Another Strategic Acquisition

NEW YORK, Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Guidepost Solutions LLC ( announced today it has acquired Los Angeles-based Investigative Advisory Group.  Investigative Advisory Group was founded by former FBI agent Thomas J. Cowley, who brings 30 years of investigative, compliance, and security experience in the public and private sectors.  Mr. Cowley will lead Guidepost's Los Angeles Office as a Senior Managing Director, and complement Guidepost's San Francisco and Oakland offices.

"The acquisition of Investigative Advisory Group expands our geographic reach on the West Coast, particularly for our services in the entertainment and sports industries, which has been a growing part of our business," said Andrew O'Connell, CEO of Guidepost Solutions.  "The addition of Investigative Advisory Group and its superb team, led by the highly-regarded Tom Cowley, supports our strategic growth objective of being where our clients need us, with the capabilities they need from us."

Tom Cowley has specialized in the management of high stakes investigations throughout the U.S. and internationally. He has directed thousands of inquiries involving internal investigations, corporate fraud, due diligence, theft of intellectual property and fact gathering in support of commercial litigation. He has acted as the senior contact to Fortune 500 companies, major law firms, financial institutions and government agencies.  Prior to founding Investigative Advisory Group, Mr. Cowley held senior positions in leading international security and investigative consulting firms.  Over a ten-year career as a Special Agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Mr. Cowley conducted and directed criminal cases targeting white-collar crime, organized crime, labor racketeering and narcotics traffickers. Earlier, as an Investigator for the State of New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, Mr. Cowley was responsible for tracing the source of funds to be invested in prospective Atlantic City casinos.

"We pride ourselves on helping clients minimize risks in executing their business strategies and finding solutions for problems that demand up-to-the-minute accurate information," said Mr. Cowley.  "We are a perfect fit with Guidepost Solutions, building on the highly-needed services that Guidepost provides, while bolstering its presence in important markets."
