We believe in good-faith mutual loyalty and in moral commitments of duty. We know the harm that can derive from self-protective legal minimalism. We believe in permanently inexhaustible got-your-six honor. If you fulfill the client requirements in good faith, you can depend on our moral stances of actively protective loyalty and confidentiality, regardless of denigration in the news or by adversaries.
Sympathetic to Mischaracterizations and Manipulative Legalism
High-profile individuals and valuable targets are prone to mischaracterizations via the Internet, sensationalist reporting, and judicial accusations. Our concierges/keepers and other senior staffers have the sophistication to understand complicated circumstances. Aspects of our professional expertise pertain to focusing on true intel—not hype and false accusations—and to being discrete, with an active protection of protecting the genuine intel by avoiding those public forums.
We are sympathetic for those who have been unjustly subjected legal manipulations, vague misinterpretations of laws, or the legalized extortion of disingenuous lawsuits. You can be comfortable knowing that you are empathetically respected by us. We only care about your true moral intentions.
- Modern society has become impatient, with nicely packaged determinations of right or wrong based on arbitrary conditions. We know how people who are successful and often are subjected to twisted mischaracterizations and false accusations, which are then enabled by widespread apathy and impatience understand details.
- We believe in liberty and a free economy.
- There has been a divergence between morals and legalism. Legalism has widely replaced morality in many popular standards. Not with us. We respect those with the self-restraint to hold themselves to morality, honor, and duty, and we do not respect the broadening culture that equates morality to be the lowest possible basis of self-restraint to whatever can be argued to be minimally lawful, or—even less honorable—to a basis of calculated risk factors of lawsuit exposure.
We hope to help you with a level playing field by giving you tools to defend yourself accordingly. To whatever extent of law that can be identified to apply, we want to defend your secrets, freedoms, and prosperity against any employee, manipulative claimant, rival, reporter, or other adversary.
Coordination with You
Friendly and Mutual
Being instinctively protective, the senior concierge's support for each client is personally ingrained. There is no way to be deeply and creatively thoughtful, to personally sacrificial extents, without having steadfast care. When you see us offering our kindness, you are receiving genuine expressions of friendship. Financial motivations could not motivate us sufficiently to have absolute and permanent loyalty. We truly feel each client is a personal, lifelong friend. Even if all compensated services ended a decade ago, we would still be delighted to hear from an old friend, and happy to be helpful in any possible way.
Like Christmas and Hanukkah becoming a "holiday shopping season," the consumer realm has transformed a soul-level sanctity into superficiality that does not extend past barriers of pleasantries, political correctness, and—as exemplified by the eroding slogans of a holiday designated to celebrate the Birth of Jesus—legally self-protective. Many civilians are able to spend most of their lives in states of convenience, reasonably following uniform commercial codes, without being responsible for navigating self-conflicting ambiguities that affect large numbers of lives and livelihoods. Therefore, for the benefit of those who are relatively new to the intensities of internationally prominent leadership, private equity, and foreign relations, we need to clarify that we are not referencing some kind of a "hotel loyalty program" that issues pretty membership cards.
Loyalty, to anyone who has earnestly avowed to an oath—and has upheld that oath regardless of risks to one's life or livelihood—would be disheartened to be confused with a membership ID quantified by points that expire after eighteen months. No, loyalty to us has no relevance to how often you patronize our services.
Reciprocating the concept that duty-of-honor loyalty is not an oscillating variable based on frequency of transactions, loyalty from us is not expressed with consumer-style subservience and elegant service rituals. To the contrary, the tradecraft of counterintelligence and the operations of HVI security are awkward, inconvenient, and must be accepted with flexibility. For example, merely the hospitality aspect of our Enduring Executive service is structured for staffing by retired parajumpers. (Parajumpers are the epitome of self-endangering, fast-lifesaving heroes—a spec-ops extreme version of paramedics. In addition to entering battle theaters, contracted retirees are an important resource for foreign paramilitary operations, without referencing or carrying their official US identification: they must trespass and commit severely punishable crimes to hot exfil and then to cas-evac US field officers and contractors.) That kind of whatever-it-takes, unflinchingly loyal duty is in sharp contrast to the "I'm-not-comfortable-with-that" attitudes of most non-physician, non-military healthcare workers. A parajumper's dedication is at the hero level of loyalty, but don't expect him to fluff your pillows. We have other workers for that. If you want aimless subservience, any ordinary five-star hotel will fluff your ego (along with pillows), but that's not the type of dutifully loyal protector who would deftly assert black-bag tradecraft in swiftly evading a high-value individual from surprise duress. Your concierge is your professional handler with countersurveillance expertise and executive business sophistication. This is a realm of temerity far more personal and sophisticated than the diminutive politeness of paid hospitality.
Loyalty is a personal duty of honor. A hero in a hospital bed knows that a chaplain is faithfully protective of the soldier's embattled soul and legacy, completely disconnected from how often—if ever—that soldier had attended any of the Padre's field chapels. Conversely, the chaplain does not withhold his accessibility to this continuously lifelong patriot. For example, if the chaplain were ever to be off-book in-country for the exfil of a captured officer, the chaplain would know that he could depend on the operative's spec-ops skills to be faithfully protective. (Some wonder whether sometimes hypothetical examples are not hypothetical. Please click here for a powerful article by a chaplain.)
Roles and Dialogue
We understand the critically sensitive profession of a dignitary handler. The following are among the many potential mechanisms for protection.
- Upon request, we shall suggest a particular attorney with whom we have an established relationship and whom we (as non-lawyers) believe could likely represent you. The attorney would then be able to contract us for our services on your behalf, potentially extending some relevant aspects of attorney-client privilege.
- We can talk in abstraction and hypotheticals, if necessary.
- We can be extremely exotic and creative to accommodate your circumstances.
The countersurveillance expert is customarily contracted as a legal service through the attorney for legal privilege, guarding your secrets.
Please contact us for more information; particularly please ask about the legal framework of our fiduciary services.
Your Senior Concierge
Our model of personal care and duty is based on a proven structure. A rare persona is suitable to be a handler, and only someone who has proven lifelong consistency can be a senior concierge with us. A worthy handler is unflaggingly protective and applies honed expertise (at least for what's critically important) in the guidance of the individual(s) who reciprocate with vital faith.
The first set of qualities are relatable to clergy and many other people who endlessly sacrifice their own comfort and security for strangers who join their flock, never saying that some obscure matter of contentment is not their job or, for example, that the requester is no longer a customer. Simultaneously, that protectiveness must be voluntarily maintained wile routinely sending their sheep into situations would both be incomprehensibly complex (with hundreds of simultaneous human and technical variables, one or more of which often at levels beyond what most people ever experience in their lives, or at technical levels of expertise more advanced than any commercially available manual), and overwhelmingly stressful.
The latter quality differentiates your keeper from any other concierge or butler we have ever encountered. Securing your privacy, your senior concierge is one of those rare people. Hospitality inevitably involves mishaps and imperfections, especially when depending on contracted services and service-industry workers, but any good person who places faith in his or her senior concierge can depend on reciprocation of endless care, and that sense of protective care means that you should always contact your senior concierge whenever anything is amiss. There are many traditional hotels that offer responsive convenience and opulent facilities, and we respect them as superior for the standard needs of ordinary travelers.
The sophistication and the unafraid dedication of a senior concierge make us the exclusive resource for niche clients with sophisticated needs.
Ardent Sophistication for You
Accustomed to Protective Discretion
The title of a senior concierge now supplements, as an understandable term to the general public, the lesser recognized titles that would more accurately describe their services of extraordinary sophistication and unbreakable characteristics of protective loyalty: handler and keeper.
Via subsequently revealed demands, dispersed over decades, each professional has proven that he did not acquiesce to extreme combinations of subpoenas, sustained life-threatening intensity, and catastrophic mischaracterizations. Purely out of coincidence, not meeting each other until years later under unrelated contexts, three of us personally had direct confidential access to the same US President. Two of us have been the primary protector and provider of shelter for multiple heads of state (including an eventual US President) on an emergency basis while they were in physical danger. One member of our group directly served two US Presidents to provide lodging and hospitality to them and their respective senior advisors.
