Christiaan Oldenkamp started Forth Global in 2008 (until September 2020 known as Expat Preventive). After his military career at the Dutch special forces, Christiaan started working in the international automotive industry in several international positions from 1998 until 2008. Also Christiaan worked as an expat for a German automotive institute. In his last job as product manager at Pon-Caterpillar, Christiaan was confronted with a severe incident of a colleague in Nigeria. This incident inspired Christiaan to start his own security company, where he could combine his security expertise with the international business experience. He founded Expat Preventive, which focussed on training for expats. His company soon grew into a total solution provider, with a broader risk and resilience scope. That is why he rebranded his company into Forth Global in 2020.
