107. Alpha Firm. KGB's top team
Edited on Wed Jun-28-06 11:13 AM by DrDebug
Alpha Firm is part of Kroll and used to be a division of Armor Holdings. Alpha team is the privatized top team of the KGB.

United States meets Russia and they go into business together

On a Tuesday morning in late June last year, Alan Golacinski and Michael Golovatov joined Jacksonville, Florida Mayor John Delaney at the dedication of a new building in the city's "international tradeport."

Golacinski is president of U.S. Defence Systems, a private company that provides security for U.S. embassies, especially in African countries. Golovatov is the director of a Moscow based company known as Alpha-A which provides security for businesses transporting goods across the former Soviet Union.

A decade before, the two men would have been bitter, and probably deadly, rivals. Golacinski was White House Security Adviser, a position he rose to after 20 years in the State Department, while Golovatov spent an equal number of years working for the KGB's crack commando team, known at the time as Alpha.

Now both Golacinski and Golovatov report to the same bosses-Richard Bethell and Sir Alistair Morrison-two ex-Special Air Service (SAS) commandos in London. They run a profitable private company named Defence Systems Limited (DSL) in London in offices next to Buckingham Palace.
