DEREK MENDONCA

OMEGA1ASSOCIATES

 

Studied law as a student and then left university and ended up in the one thing I did not want to do…finance. I had no idea at this point that all these roles would play a significant part of my career down the line. Was very successful in finance as I was always an ‘out of the box’ thinker and was innovative in my approach and was very successful spending time in NCR UK running their finance department.

 

Then spent 27 years investigating criminal activity across various business, after I was approached by a US company to head up their international operation for security and investigations. I underwent training in the US to include firearms, negotiations, interrogations and interview techniques, photography, surveillance and counter surveillance among many other requirements.

 I conducted various investigations on a worldwide basis to cover fraud, money laundering, organised crime, due diligence on individuals and companies as well as close protection for high level dignitaries.

 

Being an ‘out of the box’ thinker ‘I then together with a contact I had made started an aircraft company in Barcelona, Spain to manufacture the worlds largest humanitarian drone. This drone would be used for firefighting, world aid, crop spraying, cargo delivery and search and rescue. Not having an engineering or aviation background, I start this company from the ground up, became the CEO and positioned it as market leader and disruptor in the world of large drones.

 

I enjoy the challenge of working with new business to help and guide and now have my own business where I conduct investigations for companies of various natures.
