Livingstone Facilitates Sale Between Security Risk Management Firm Hillard Heintze to Jensen Hughes

Livingstone is pleased to announce it has advised Hillard Heintze, a market leader in strategic security risk management and investigation services, on its sale to Jensen Hughes, a portfolio company of Gryphon Investors. Livingstone acted as exclusive financial advisor to Hillard Heintze.

Chicago-based Hillard Heintze, founded in 2004 by former U.S. Secret Service Agent Arnette Heintze, has earned accolades as an industry leader in setting new world-class service standards for customized solutions that help organizations identify and manage risk to their people, property, performance and reputations.

More than 85 Fortune-ranked enterprises, 575 U.S. and international brands, and 150 of the world’s most affluent families have gained insight, assurance and confidence through Hillard Heintze’s services – and are better managing their security risk. Jensen Hughes is a global leader in safety, security and risk-based engineering and consulting.

“This is a very exciting day for us,” says Hillard Heintze founder and CEO Arnette Heintze. “Joining Jensen Hughes is the most powerful and promising way to continue to meet our vision to be trusted around the world to protect what matters. When I decided to explore transaction alternatives, I set clear goals for what I wanted to accomplish and searched for an advisor that would construct a process designed to meet those objectives. Livingstone provided expert advice and guided us to this tremendous outcome for the Company.”

“Hillard Heintze is a world leader and innovator in security risk management, and we are pleased to complete a transaction with an ideal partner in Jensen Hughes,” commented Andrew Bozzelli, Partner, Livingstone Partners. “The sale of Hillard Heintze represents another successful transaction for us in the security industry as well as achieving a great outcome for a founder-operated business.”
