Professional Experience

Prior to Kroll, Nick was an infantry soldier in the Grenadier Guards serving in the United Kingdom, Germany, and Northern Ireland. He left the Army to become a police officer with the Metropolitan Police in 1989, where he spent the next 15 years serving in general policing and specialist operations roles. These included public order policing, counterterrorism, diplomatic protection, homicide investigations, theft, burglary and robbery investigations, anti-narcotics investigations, and surveillance. This led to service in SCO19, the Metropolitan Police Specialist Firearms Department, where he served in the armed response role. Nick received four commendations for bravery and investigative ability during his police career.

From 2004-2006, Nick worked in the Middle East on a number of assignments, including providing close protection and security management services on a large water regeneration project, and was employed as the project security manager of a $500 million oil exploration project. He managed, designed, and implemented all security measures around the drilling sites, seismic operations, pipeline, and central processing plant. He also supervised several hundred security personnel including several close protection teams and a de-mining group. Nick went on to provide security training and consulting services in Europe.
