Internal Auditing Company Protiviti Acquires Radius and Creative Options

Risk consulting and internal auditing firm Protiviti Inc. was on the move this week with the purchase of Canadian risk management and loss prevention firms Creative Options and Radius.

Both Creative Options and Radius are well-placed within the Canadian retail marketplace, serving a number of Fortune 1000 retail firms in Canada and the U.S.

Radius is known for its on-site loss prevention strategies, and has specialized in not only shrink and worker safety, but also supply chain management, crisis management and identity theft issues. Creative Options takes the Radius mode a step further, with a business plan that involves the communication of loss prevention and risk management strategies to all levels of a retail organization. The company also offers digital portals for tracking performance in both loss prevention and safety, and offers auditing software.

Both Radius and Creative Options' offerings are being wrapped up into Protiviti's retail operations.
