The alliance in Iraq will be referred as BETS (Babylon Eagles/TigerSwan).
“Babylon Eagles is the preeminent provider of integrated security solutions in Iraq,” said James Reese, CEO of TigerSwan. “We are understandably proud and humbled that Babylon Eagles has selected TigerSwan as its exclusive U.S. security partner to assist companies operating there and the people and the government of Iraq.”
“The synergy that will result from this strategic alliance will allow us to provide a comprehensive service to our customers in every community throughout the entire country of Iraq. The alliance also aligns with the Department of Defense ‘Iraqi First’ initiative,” said Reese. “All of our key personnel were instrumental in supporting the people of Iraq as U.S. military Special Operations members, and now continue that support by providing current and relevant security and stabilization business solutions. Partnering with a preeminent Iraqi company like Babylon Eagles is an important step in TigerSwan’s service offering to our clients,” he said.
Dr. Mudhar Shawkat, Founder and CEO of Babylon Eagles Security Company, called the selection of TigerSwan “an important and strategic extension of the expansive services we provide to our clients doing business in Iraq.” “Among all the U.S. security firms we considered, TigerSwan and its principals were the most respected, most culturally attuned to the challenges facing our growing client base operating in Iraq,” said Shawkat. The combined strength of TigerSwan and Babylon Eagles will enable a more effective and specialized relationship with customers throughout the region, he said.
