We offer an unmatched record in finding and returning stolen or lost art works. Robert Wittman’s career as an FBI Special Agent included 20 years of investigative experience resulting in the recovery of more than $225 million worth of stolen art and cultural property. Prior to his retirement from the FBI in 2008, it became evident that there was a significant gap between the demands of the private sector and the resource constraints inherent in law enforcement. Robert Wittman Inc. was founded in 2008 to bridge this gap.
In 2009 alone, there were more than 50 thousand art thefts reported. The illicit art market continues to represent a $4 to $6 billion annual criminal enterprise with victims coming from all segments of the art and cultural artifact community.
Today, our company is uniquely positioned to provide expertise relating to security, protection, and recovery of our clients valuable assets. We provide solutions to security and art loss problems.
