About Us

Recognising the power of aggregated talent, Danie Liebenberg set out in 2009 to identify other security practitioners who could add value to his own efforts as an independent security consultant and investigator.

Elio Zannoni, Quinton Kruger, Steve Chart and Massimo Dall’Armi were chosen for their unique skillsets, resulting in a team of associates with great depth of experience and know-how.

Born and raised in South Africa, Danie, entered the private security industry in 1993 after leaving the South African Police.

During his career he  has gained valuable insight into the security challenges faced by  financial institutions, mining houses, retailers, manufacturers, logistics operations, automotive businesses, exhibition venues, sport and recreation facilities, residential estates, aviation operators, health care institutions, agri businesses, property managers, educational institutions, churches and more.


Currently in his mid-fifties, Danie’s thirty-plus years of experience is complimented by his  extensive understanding of the private security industry, security technology and his out-of-the-box  thinking. This has  earned him a reputation as a true thought-leader and problem solver.

At Liebenberg & Associates it is believed that effective security risk mitigation and investigations are primarily the result of how challenges are viewed and problems diagnosed, which naturally greatly impacts the course of action that follows.

Danie’s experience  and enthusiasm is evident in every project that he leads, and   it is clear that he still has much that he wants to contribute. He has authored various articles on security risk management, is a popular  speaker at security conferences  and has hosted a range  of workshops on security risk mitigation.

Danie is based in Johannesburg and collaborate with his associates  on projects in South Africa and  on the rest of the African continent.

Danie is registered with the Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority in South Africa (PSIRA No. 148029).
