CounterAction is a partnership between two former competitive intelligence professionals who have converted from being poachers into gamekeepers

Jerry Hoffmann
US Partner
Chris West
European Partner

Chris West had a career working as an economist and an industrial market researcher before co-founding Competitive Intelligence Services in 1995. This grew to being one of the largest European CI specialists serving the requirements of  clients in the US and Europe

Jerry Hoffmann led the competitive intelligence organizations for both AT&T and Eli Lilly and Company.

Jerry and Chris have reworked their skills to help clients protect their proprietary knowledge bases and have been carrying out counter intelligence projects for the last 5 years.
