Who are we?

Gallice Group, a company of experienced professionals who share the same fundamental values.

Managing risks is a real profession. The human factor is essential.

It requires an open mind, the ability to analyse, summarise and put facts into perspective, and an appetite for challenge. These shared values underpin our association of professionals, who have built up their experience through dealing with state security issues in civilian or military contexts, at the heart of the action where the stakes are highest. With their complementary backgrounds and skills, these people make up the core of our team. They are also what makes it legitimate. Their track records include successfully dealing with dangerous situations. At Gallice they are driven by mutual trust, and they place this trust at the heart of their relationships with their clients.

We have made values such as lucidity, imagination, ethics, determination and courage the pillars of our management principles, and these are key assets for helping companies and states to manage their risks.
