London (February 5, 2019) – K2 Intelligence, an industry-leading investigative, compliance, and cyber defense services firm, today announced that Neil Wilson has joined the firm’s London office as a senior director to help expand the firm’s Private Client Services (PCS) practice. Mr. Wilson will focus on the intersection of security and technology for high-net-worth individuals and their families, and report to Darren Matthews, executive managing director and head of Europe Middle East and Africa (EMEA) for the firm. As part of the PCS team, Mr. Wilson will also coordinate with Jordan Arnold, executive managing director at K2 Intelligence and head of the U.S. Private Client Services and Strategic Risk and Security practices.
