What is the history of Le Beck?

Le Beck was established in 2001 by its CEO security and risk management veteran Anthony Tesar. The decision to set up operations in the region in 2004 was prompted by the increased terrorist activity facing the Middle East, and the growing requirements of major corporate organisation for expert advisory services to enhance their security measures and response capabilities. Le Beck initially worked with the Central Banks and prominent banking institutions in the financial sector to implement practical solutions to protect corporate reputations, facilities, employees and senior executives against potential and projected threats.

Since then, Le Beck has evolved into the most trusted and widely respected consultancy in its field, expanding its reach and client portfolio across the GCC and MENA region to include major government entities, private corporations, mega city projects, as well as Family Groups and High Net Worth/High Risk Individuals from across the Middle East.
