What Our Clients Say About Tenácitas

“We had lost a succession of contracts in Mexico to a local competitor that had come out of nowhere and with the prospect of losing another - very large - one which could force us to withdraw from the country, we decided to take a deep dive and find out more about them. We selected Tenácitas International because of their Latin American expertise and they did a terrific job. Simon’s team was able to develop concerning information not only on the origins and the exponential growth of the company - which was inexplicable from any conventional commercial perspective - but also on its key affiliates and suppliers, including beneficiary shareholders whose extremely modest profiles - one was a rural elementary school teacher - clearly indicated they were frontmen. The competitor was owned by a family linked to the illicit opium trade. Using the findings we were able to preserve our biggest contract.”
