Tola Johnson


What people say

“Tola worked with us on a series of investigations into misconduct within the department lasting over 8 months. The allegations covered a wide range of misconduct, and the actions of the team were deliberately obscured at all levels. Tola brought his extensive experience to bear on the situation, never being overwhelmed by the sheer scale of the information to be examined. In fact, Tola’s ability to compartmentalise each allegation and individual allowed me to see how he analysed and distilled each case to its core components. His cases, and reports, were clearly constructed and laid out enabling easy understanding of the core issues without needing extensive background briefing. Additionally, Tola brought a sense of fairness and proportionality to his work which is an essential, but often overlooked, requirement of the good investigative process. If the occasion arose, I would be more than happy to utilise Tola again as, in common with all good working relationships, I found myself learning from him and his personality lent itself to effective team working.”
Kevin Griffin, Chief Information Security Officer
“Tola was engaged by Ealing Council to undertake a number of investigations under the council code of conduct and disciplinary process. His background and professional experience in managing complex and detailed lines of enquiry to evidence and present the findings of his investigations has been exceptional. At all times Tola has constantly demonstrated his integrity, impartiality and strong professional values. I would have no hesitation to call on his service again and I would recommend him to any future potential client of his services.”
Ed Axe, Director ICT, IDM, & Property Services (CIO)
