Company investigations - an honest story
Transparency - according to many, a basis for successful business. I am happy to concur with that. Say what you do, do what you say. Simple, right? Yet this does not seem to be so simple for everyone, also not within the company investigation department.
Private investigation, also known as company detective, is a niche, a profession for specialists. You don't just become a private detective overnight. In the years when I still worked for the police, 'detective work' was a department that many a colleague looked at with longing and admiration. The criminal investigation department, that was when you made it. Even now, in the private sector, you don't become a 'detective' overnight, and that's a good thing.
Clients entrust their misery to a private investigation firm. Financial damage, buckets of stomach ache, sleepless nights. So it is nice for the client to know that 'his file' is in good hands. Is that not so?
Clients (and potential clients) deserve an honest story, if only because they do not put their trust in the hands of a detective agency for nothing. After all, trust that has already been (severely) damaged once...
For company investigations in the Netherlands, but also abroad, Interro is the place to go. Because company investigations have to be an honest story, and because investigating is a profession in which many aspects play a major role. Investigating is not a hobby, not something you just learn or do on the side. Knowledge, experience, analytical skills, communication skills: I possess these qualities and apply them daily for the best possible result. That is why my clients choose Interro.
About John Warrink
Interro consists of one department, one person: That person is me, John Warrink. That department is my office. A desk, an iMac, a phone and a network. In recent years, I have built up a network of good, reliable specialists who I gratefully make use of whenever necessary. People who have certain competences that I do not have, or who can work on an assignment 'for me' or together with me. People who all have permission to conduct private investigations. That can be a company detective, but also observers, forensic IT specialists or forensic accountants are in my extensive and strong network.
15 years of police experience and more than 20 years of private investigations ensure that I know how things work. The extensive experience I have gained in all these investigations, combined with my enthusiasm and analytical abilities are the building blocks for a thorough investigation every day, but also for a wonderful portfolio of clients.
Flexibility, quality and enthusiasm
My clients know that when they call me, they get John on the phone, and he takes all the time he needs for me, without immediately hitting the stopwatch, whether it's in the morning or at 9 o'clock in the evening. Walking the extra mile' is what they call it in English. My clients know that I keep my appointments and that their 'problems' are in good and safe hands with me as a company detective. I like to think along, and by going that extra mile I like to prove my added value.
Transparent and honest
Transparency - according to many, a basis for successful business. I am happy to concur with that. Say what you do, do what you say. Simple, right? Yet this does not seem that simple to everyone, not even in the business investigation department. At Interro you can trust that you will hear an honest story. Many websites of detective agencies talk about 'our employees', and 'we'. It may be useful to know that many(most) detective agencies in the Netherlands consist of one person. There is nothing wrong with that (because Interro also consists of one person), but do not let yourself be (mis)led by texts on websites when you are looking for a reliable agency.
I sometimes jokingly say that my working day is 24 hours long. My clients know that they can always call me (preferably not after midnight, but if they have to, they have to). If I am not available, I will call back quickly.
Do I need to jump into my car at 10pm to work on a case? Not a problem. Working days last longer than 12 hours? Then we keep on raking. I am also often at work in the weekends.
That is simply the disadvantage of a profession where you work incident-related. Fraud and crime are never committed by appointment.
In recent years, I have built up a large network that I gratefully make use of whenever necessary. People who have certain competences that I do not have, or who can work on an assignment 'for me' or together with me. People who all have permission to conduct private investigations. Observers, IT specialists, tactical investigators: I know how to find the right people. Also abroad.
If you have a question that I cannot answer, please ask it anyway. I will gladly put you in touch with the right people.
