One of the most common questions we are asked by private clients and their family offices is “What are the security risks to my family – or our clients’ families – today, and how can we address these in a prudent and prevention-oriented manner?”
That’s a question you can ask Hillard Heintze CEO Arnette Heintze yourself this coming Tuesday – or just listen to his perspective on these issues. I’m looking forward to supporting Arnette, who I’ve known for many years as we spent almost our entire careers in the U.S. Secret Service and rely, in part, on this base of experience when we advise clients.

About Arnette Heintze
For those of you who don’t yet know Arnette as co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Hillard Heintze and have not seen his bio, Arnette has transformed a small high-performing cadre of senior experts into a globally recognized strategic security and investigations firm. Under his leadership, Hillard Heintze has emerged today as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States. For three years in a row, it has been ranked on the annual Inc. 500/5000 list. In 2010, the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City’s extended the firm its annual award for the fastest-growing inner city firm in the U.S., naming Hillard Heintze #6 in the nation and #1 in Chicago. Under Arnette’s direction, the expanding Hillard Heintze team is systematically setting new best practices in security and investigations across the board – a track record that has quickly and dramatically expanded the firm’s client list to include a “Who’s Who” of Fortune-ranked corporations with leading positions in their industries – across the country and, in many cases, worldwide.
Arnette has an exceptionally strategic perspective on security. As a U.S. Secret Service Special Agent and a senior agency executive, he planned, designed and implemented successful security strategies for U.S. Presidents, world leaders, events of national significance and the protection of the nation’s most critically sensitive assets. In 1990, Arnette was part of the Presidential Protective Division, where he served more than four years on the permanent detail protecting President and Mrs. Bush and President and Mrs. Clinton. In Washington, D.C., Arnette also served as the agency’s senior liaison to the 160 foreign embassies in the city. In 1998, Arnette earned the honor of being chosen as the Treasury Department’s representative to attend the National War College, an elite program for select military officers and ranking federal civilians, where he earned a Master of Science degree in national security strategy. In April 2000, Arnette’s strategic leadership qualifications led to his appointment as a member of the Senior Executive Service and his selection as the Special Agent in Charge of the Secret Service’s Chicago field office.

- How Family Dynamics Can Contribute to Risks

I hope you’ll join. I’m looking forward to a vibrant discussion.
