Scott coggins, cfe, cpp

Brand Protection & Global Investigations (BPGI) was founded by Scott Coggins, CFE, CPP in 2017 after more than 20 years of working criminal investigations in law enforcement, fraud investigations, brand protection and ethics investigations within an international manufacturing company.  Scott has held director level positions in investigations, security, loss prevention and brand protection. This extensive background involved cases of internal / external theft, credit card and internet fraud, cargo and supply chain thefts, trade secret thefts as well as counterfeiting and diversion cases. The last 7 in-house years were spent directing the Brand Protection & Investigations Department for Silicon Valley based Flex LTD. (formerly Flextronics International). This position included the development and implementation of the companys global anti-counterfeiting programs as well as the responsibility for managing all IP investigations throughout the Americas and EMEA. This work provided hands on experience with criminal & civil seizures, cease and desist programs, internet investigations, internal & external training programs, market surveys and supply chain audits. It also provided valuable international travel experience that allowed for the personal vetting and establishment of a trusted worldwide network of investigative and security professionals including attorneys, law enforcement officials and other civil investigators. Having worked in-house provides BPGI with the understanding that while protecting brand value is a support function within a company it is a critical function that must be addressed professionally, with the highest of standards and with absolute integrity. We also understand that a company has its own distinct corporate culture and we will work with you to ensure you have the proper programs in place to suit your environment.

Scott is also considered to be a Subject Matter Expert (SME) in conducting investigations and the investigative process.  He frequently provides speaking services to various industries and is available for special engagements.  To speak with Scott directly, please e-mail him at scott@bpginvestigations.com or contact our office at (615) 398-0447.
