Recently, Mr. Turecek assisted a major domestic energy producer when a vendor’s product delivery contaminated a storage facility and then a client shipment. Mr. Turecek led a team conducting data analysis to review thousands of transport tickets, identify the various vendor supplier and transport companies, conduct backgrounds on the key players and significantly winnow the list of potential shipments. The team conducted onsite field investigations, reversing latitude/longitude information from transport tickets and finding significant issues where some of the sites were empty land plots and, in at least two instances, waste recycling facilities from where shipments of “clean” product to the client originated.
For a major financial institution client where competitors claimed personal attribution for key investment activity decisions, Mr. Turecek conducted a global independent assessment of investments. He helped to determine the actual and appropriate attribution of the key individuals who worked on various aspects of each investment, including the sourcing of the investment opportunities, management of the assets, board assignments and exit work.
Mr. Turecek started his career over 26 years ago as a field research associate at Kroll Associates and rose through the ranks to become a Senior Managing Director, including interim positions heading Kroll’s Boston and Chicago offices. He then moved to Control Risks to work in their Business Intelligence & Due Diligence North America practice.
