As of January 3, 2017, Mr. Oscar Villanueva, TAL Global’s Managing Director of Investigations, has accepted a promotion to Chief Operating Officer.
Mr. Villanueva joined TAL Global in 2015 after a highly distinguished career as a federal security and law enforcement executive at the United States Postal Inspection Service (USPIS). During his time with the USPIS, Mr. Villanueva led far-reaching investigative, security and law enforcement operations in several large metropolitan areas in the U.S., Europe, and Latin America. He is a skilled, respected and knowledgeable security and law enforcement expert, appreciated by the security community and law enforcement leaders in both the public and private sectors.
Mr. Villanueva is also an international security expert with extensive experience leading consulting missions to multiple countries in the Americas, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, and Africa, and facilitating critical security, emergency preparedness, and risk management training domestically and overseas.
In his first year as TAL Global’s Managing Director of Investigations, Mr. Villanueva was responsible for managing upwards of 100 cases both internationally and here in the US. He increased the company’s already robust ability to respond to client needs quickly and with a personal touch that underscores TAL Global’s commitment to specifically tailored approaches and solutions.
In his new role, and under the guidance of Mr. Johnathan Tal, Mr. Villanueva will be responsible for TAL Global’s daily operations and the execution of the company’s strategic expansion plan. At Mr. Villanueva’s side will be TAL Global’s team of Managing Directors – a formidable group of security veterans from multiple disciplines, rich in field experience and academic research. In this new post, Mr. Villanueva is poised to carry on the TAL Global tradition of bringing the highest level of expertise to every project the company executes.
