PHOENIX, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- IPSA International, Inc., (IPSA) an international investigative consulting firm, is pleased to announce Craig Chretien has rejoined IPSA to serve as a Senior Advisor to President & CEO, Dan Wachtler as the company continues to expand its resources in India and develops a market penetration strategy for the Middle East. Previously, Mr. Chretien served IPSA International as Vice President, International Operations where he managed IPSA's markets and resources outside the United States and directed IPSA's international growth strategies. Prior to originally joining IPSA, Mr. Chretien spent over 25-years with the Drug Enforcement Administration, where he retired as the Assistant Administrator of Intelligence, one of the most senior positions in the agency. For a number of years, he was responsible for all DEA activities in 54 foreign countries as Chief of International Operations. Mr. Chretien managed complex international narcotics and money laundering investigations as well as designed and implemented sensitive national security level intelligence programs.

In early 2006, while with IPSA, Mr. Chretien was asked by the U.S. Department of State to develop and coordinate all U.S. Government counter narcotic programs in Afghanistan, in addition to other countries in the region. He accepted the position and for the past year has worked at the U.S. Embassy in Kabul providing program and policy guidance to the U.S. Ambassador as well as senior U.S. and Afghanistan Government officials. "Craig's current assignment in Afghanistan, which includes regional coverage of India and other parts of the Middle East, in addition to his strong background of working overseas, positions him extremely well to assist us with our expansion initiatives in the region," stated Mr. Wachtler. "In addition to his clear operational expertise and strong intelligence background, I am most looking forward to having Craig's personal counsel as I have the utmost respect for his integrity and have missed his input over the past year."
