The Uptima Group is built to offer several key functions to our clients, including professional services, program management, business solutions and executive search. The Uptima Group Principals represent more than 80 years of world-wide experience identifying and engaging some of the most difficult people to locate in the world. Two of our principals had distinguished careers as highly decorated Operations Officers in the CIA’s Directorate of Operations; one of us, Robert Richer, rose to be the Associate Deputy Director for Operations. This experience combined with the executive search and staffing experience of our other partners led to the creation of SmartFit, our unique and proprietary candidate assessment system.
