Founder, Gregg Shannon, got started in the industry working as an undercover agent at the age of nineteen for the renowned Pinkerton Agency (the founder of what's now known as the U S Secret Service) while attending Golden West College in Huntington Beach, California. After graduating, he continued working for various companies in an effort to become fully versed in all aspects of investigations, including criminal and civil defense including plaintiff investigations. In 1988, Gregg Shannon became a manager of an investigation agency in Sherman Oaks, California and was later promoted to open and manage a new branch office in San Diego, California. Gregg Shannon ran the entire division at this branch office for two years. In 1991, he completed his apprenticeship and started his own business in San Diego, California. A year later he moved the business operation to Scottsdale, Arizona to better serve the entire Southwestern US. In 1993, Gregg Shannon began serving the Pacific Northwest areas of the US and now services the entire Western and in 2015 the Southeastern United States.
Unlike most large investigative agencies who assign their work out to other, less-experienced investigators, Gregg Shannon primarily performs his investigations himself, investing his years of expertise in every case.
