Healix International announces Schillings partnership

Healix house

Healix is delighted to announce the launch of its new partnership with Schillings, a firm providing international security and intelligence services to help businesses respond to any crisis.

Schillings helps businesses deal with travelling incidents such as hijackings and kidnappings for ransom and extortion through dedicated Crisis Management Teams (CMT) operating on the ground. As part of its response, Schillings deploys multiple specialists with expertise spanning across media, data protection, military intelligence, cyber security and digital forensics to assess situations and deal with locals on the ground to protect a business’ employees.

Through the partnership, Healix clients can access Schillings’ highjack, kidnap and ransom consultancy as part of Healix’s Corporate Business Travel package. This includes access to Schillings’ specialists in the event of a crisis to advise an organisation on the best course of action, assist in the formation of a CMT, and establish a timeline framework. When it comes to cases of ransom, the service also helps Healix clients to decide on target settlement figures based on regional intelligence assessments. Additionally, Schillings’ expertise includes helping clients liaise with all stakeholders, including the victims’ families, friends and co-workers as well as local authorities, the media and governments.

Charlie Butcher, CEO, Healix International comments:

With most countries lifting COVID-related travel restrictions, more people are now going back to travelling for business. This return to corporate travel and the recent crisis in Europe has pushed us to consider the importance of our offering in providing holistic crisis support for our members and their staff.

This partnership builds on this even further – Schillings has an impressive record of successful interventions and their responses provide invaluable guidance and advice for clients.  We are confident they will receive the best possible support and outcome in the event of a crisis and Healix is on hand to help every step of the way too.”

Brittany Damora, Senior Associate of Critical Risk Advisory at Schillings Partners, added:

“The risks to privacy, safety and security are evolving in our increasingly connected world – and given the complexity of these threats, a range of disciplines and experts are needed to address them.

Our Critical Risk team are therefore proud to be partnering with Healix to add to their leading risk response services. By combining both organisations’ expertise, we can offer a robust and holistic solution to the growing safety and security risks we’re seeing today.”
