John Boaden joined Martin Kenney & Co. in December 2011 as the Managing Director of the firm's internationally-focused Investigations and Analysis Unit.
John served as a Police Detective in the British Police for some 30 years before retiring whilst holding the rank of Detective Chief Inspector. One of his specialty areas included complex fraud investigations. Included in his work experience was a near seven-year secondment with the Royal Cayman Islands Police where he was attached to the Commercial Crime Branch interacting with law enforcement authorities and regulatory bodies from around the world.
During the worldwide closure of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (“BCCI”) in the early 1990s, he carried the responsibility for the execution of a number of BCCI-related search warrants and the management of a number of relationships with foreign jurisdictions who sought access to the large number of documents seized, thereby allowing a number of prosecutions worldwide.
During his tenure in the Cayman Islands, he authored a handbook on the ‘Management of Major Incident Rooms’ for use by Police Forces involved in various major investigations. The procedures set out in the handbook were designed for and adopted by the Island Police Forces in the British Dependent Territories in the Caribbean basin.
After retirement in 1993, John moved to Florida where he worked as a licensed private investigator and, in 2000, he moved to Texas where he also became licensed as a private investigator. Much of his work during his 18 years as a private investigator in the USA has been for law firms and financial institutions, tracing and recovering misappropriated assets around the world”.
