Who we are

Investigative Management Group (IMG) is a global leader in the high-end investigative market, having distinguished itself as one of the top providers of corporate security and intelligence-gathering services.

The firm’s two principals, Robert Strang and Ann Hayes, have been business partners since 1989, when they founded Strang Hayes Consulting after successful careers in federal law enforcement. Strang Hayes went on to become one of the world’s leading corporate security firms and was sold to SPX Corporation, a Fortune 500 company, in 2001.

IMG builds on the success, reputation, and track record of its principals, who created a similar culture and commitment to excellence at Strang Hayes. The firm has quickly garnered a high profile by providing a superior level of expertise and service to Fortune 500 companies, financial institutions, law firms, high-net-worth individuals and foreign governments.

IMG is able to offer its clients the gold standard in investigative work but without the overhead and bureaucracy of the largest firms. This agility enables IMG to be flexible, move quickly, ensure confidentiality, and deliver valuable results within a reasonable budget.

Based in Midtown Manhattan, IMG employs a full-time case management team of professionals, supported by hundreds of analysts, technical specialists, investigators and operatives around the world. The firm’s commitment to a team approach enables timely information gathering, analysis and hands-on case management that involves the owners of the firm in virtually every client engagement.
