Jorge Salgado-Reyes, Operations Director
Jorge was born in Chile and came over to the UK aged 7. Having spent his formative years in the UK and Mozambique, Jorge became tri-lingual, speaking fluent English, Spanish and Portuguese.
As a result of his language skills, he went to work in the family business as an interpreter but his true love was that of the private investigator. Not having had a classical private investigator background, Jorge knew that the only way into the industry was to take the commercial route. He started off as a Security Officer and then a Store Detective working for various high street retail stores until he became a Security Manager for a leading high street bookseller and then various roles as a Retail Loss Prevention Investigator.
Having had 17 years in retail fraud investigations, Jorge had enough of working for other people and in April 2006, started his own private investigator agency specialising in commercial investigations, surveillance, process serving and tracing.
Jorge has a diploma in Private Investigations and Investigative Interviewing and is a Fellow who sat on the Governing Council of the World Association of Professional Investigators – WAPI for many years. Jorge has also co-authored the UK’s premier text for process servers, British Process Servers Guide available to purchase on Amazon.
