Stapleton Group Enhances Counter-Terrorism Expertise with Addition of Robert Martin as Senior Advisor

NEW YORK, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — "Stapleton Group is forever linked to counter-terrorism, and with the addition of Bob Martin to our executive team we continue to improve as industry leaders. Bob and I first met over 40 years ago when we were both patrolmen in the NYPD's fabled Tactical Patrol Force (TPF). I could go on about his extensive law enforcement / terrorism background, but his resume and thoughts from two of his law enforcement colleagues speak for themselves." Michael Stapleton

Bob Martin served for 32 years with the New York City Police Department, retiring in 2000 as a Deputy Inspector. During his last 10 years of service he supervised the New York Joint Terrorist Task Force and participated in many high-profile investigations. These would include the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, the Blind Sheik bombing conspiracy, the crash of TWA Flight 800 and the rescue of kidnapped tuxedo manufacturer Harvey Weinstein.

Mr. Martin's work in counter-terrorism was recognized by his appointment to the International Association of Chiefs of Police "Committee on Terrorism." In 2004 he was appointed to the Oklahoma City National Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism. He has been designated a Terrorism Subject Matter Expert by the U.S. Department of Justice's Office for Domestic Preparedness and has assisted that office in formulating counter-terrorism strategies. He has traveled around the world lecturing on the threat of terrorism and served as a consultant on terrorism and security matters with a number of security firms and major corporations. He was on the faculty at Molloy College on Long Island, teaching criminal justice and terrorism courses.

In 2001, Mr. Martin accepted the position of Director of Security at the Anti-Defamation League, coordinating security at major events and at the League's 30 offices in the United States and Israel. In 2004 he led a law enforcement mission to Israel and was chosen by the FBI to conduct training for personnel assigned to Joint Terrorist Task Forces.

"With Bob's vast law enforcement and counter-terrorism experience, he fully understands the challenges facing our country. He will be a tremendous asset to Stapleton Group."
Dale Watson, former FBI Executive Assistant Director for National Security (Counter-intelligence/Counter-terrorism)

"Bob Martin is well known and respected in the security/counter-terrorism worlds. His efforts on behalf of the IACP's "Committee on Terrorism" contributed greatly to its success."
Joseph Estey, past president of the International Association of Chiefs of Police

"With the current security concerns surrounding this country and abroad, the addition of Bob Martin as Stapleton Group Senior Advisor allows us to provide our clients unsurpassed experience and expertise. Mr. Martin will be invaluable in helping Stapleton Group provide the first-class service our clients expect and deserve."
