About

Marwan Mery

Applauded by the international press as being one of the best negotiators in the world, Marwan Mery works with the UN, businesses, governments and NGOs, of any size, to resolve complex situations, around the world, including critical situations (kidnapping and ransom, extortion, suicidal persons, collective internment), as well as social conflicts, commercial negotiations, diplomatic issues or even patient-physician relations (where for example a patient refuses to observe their treatment).

In 2013, he co-founded the ADN Group, the international negotiation agency, with his partner Laurent Combalbert, which later became the first global network of professional negotiators. In 2016, their lives and experience as crisis negotiators inspired the French/American television series Ransom – produced Frank Spotnitz (X-Files). Both of them regularly intervene in the production team as technical advisors and script doctors. In 2018, he founded the Hostage and Crisis Negotiation International Academy (HCNIA), an academy whose role is to train and raise awareness in elite units around the world to help find peaceful solutions to critical situations, through negotiation.

Marwan Mery is the author of several successful publications and taught Complex Negotiation and Lie Detection at the Sorbonne for several years before becoming a lecturer at HEC Paris.
