About Us

Company History

The idea of creating BJM Consulting Associates, LLC came to Mr. Michael Viatkine in 2003 when he was the corporate manager of Loss Prevention and Investigations at the Gucci Group, Inc. It was the result of his incorporating, in the United States, elements of psychology as a component in the professional training of security officers at Gucci Group, Inc. in New York and New Jersey.

BJM Consulting Associates, LLC was organized in 2004 in the United States as an independent consulting company. Over the course of several years the company conducted international financial and special background investigations as part of the US business market for leading international companies such as Cartier, Guess, De Beers and Gucci Group, as well as the insurance companies Equitable Life and Prudential. During this time, the company continued its theoretical and practical work training security officers in the sphere of private business.

In the period from 2008 to 2010 the security department directors of David Yurman, Hermes, Hublot, Ralph Lauren, Ivanka Trump were consulted regarding the openings of these companies’ largest stores in New York and guaranteeing their security. In 2011 the Director of the security department of Graff Diamonds was advised on the issue of preparedness of the department for the international auditing.

Beginning in 2009 Mr. Michael Viatkine started developing his system of training security officers, incorporating it into the functioning of De Beers Corporation in the United States.

From 2011 BJM Consulting Associates attracted the cooperation of Russian specialists in the spheres of leadership and psychological security. For the first time in Russia the representatives of our company participated in discussions of security problems, arranged by the Social Defense Department of Moscow’s Government. On the invitation of the Professional Development Institute for leadership and the Moscow Social Defense Department’s specialists our staff conducted a series of training sessions aimed at assuring the security of private businesses.
