Director of Operations
Sean is investigations manager and co-founder of OSACO Group. Sean began his career as a police detective in New Zealand before moving to the UN, investigating political assassinations in the Middle East. His investigative assignments extended into work within UN agencies and international NGOs and has now expanded beyond the humanitarian world into other sectors.
“Years of on-the-ground experience in some of the worst human situations in the world gives you a powerful insight into how things really work and how people function and behave in all kinds of organisational settings,” says Sean. “I believe passionately that things can be done better, so my aim is to bring this to bear on the human and organisational problems we all face in a way that really makes a difference.
“OSACO was founded because we saw the significant need for oversight and compliance specialists – in particular very skilled investigators – who have real, on-the-ground experience in organisations.
“There’s no shortage of big consultancies out there with an academic understanding of organisational theory, but we come at the problem using a real-world approach, dealing with human nature at its best and, more often, unfortunately, at its worst.”
