A press release from Constellis Holdings signals major news in the High Threat Security Industry. Academi, the company formerly known as Blackwater and Xe, will join Triple Canopy along with a handful of other high threat security companies under a new management structure named Constellis Holdings.

“This move allows us to create a suite of services to better provide critical support capabilities for government and commercial clients and will utilize ACADEMI’s world-class training facility, the largest and most comprehensive private training center in the U.S.” said Jason DeYonker, Managing Director of Constellis Holdings, Inc.

Constellis Holdings, Inc. has agreed to acquire Constellis Group, Inc., a leading provider of security, support and advisory services to government, multinational corporations and international organizations operating in challenging environments around the world.

The transaction brings together a global team of industry leaders, including: Triple Canopy, Constellis Ltd., Strategic Social, Tidewater Global Services, National Strategic Protective Services, ACADEMI Training Center and International Development Solutions.

Operating under the oversight of a distinguished Board and an experienced management team, the combination of these companies will enable a significant expansion of services within the global security market, delivering mission support, integrated security solutions, training and advisory services at home and abroad.

    With the way conflicts are playing out globally at present, there certainly is a need for an effective counter measure. Some Govt. agencies Internationally do have some effective measures in place, but from what I have seen over recent years, they need assistance & this can be achieved by having a strong / credible alliance with an ”outsider” that can provide the operational capabilities on the ground.

    I wish these companies all the best & look forward in hearing updates in the future. As an Aussie who recently did 7 years in Iraq as a security contractor, I would be interested in anything that I can assist in.

    It is such a shame that because of social politics all of the gains, and hard won fights have been discarded by folks with an agenda and disrespectful of our military.
    With a number of years in the region as a contractor, and resume on the website I would be very interested in redeploymnt.
