Christopher Vincent is a business consultant of many faces. Online he likes to present himself as an expert in transport, logistics, communications, entertainment, oil and gas, and security. “Being in the game is not as important as staying ahead of it,” his now defunct website, Christopher-Vincent.com, advised prospective clients.
Little did visitors realise that behind the façade was the ruthless leader of one of the most powerful criminal organisations on the planet. Christopher Vincent is Christopher Vincent Kinahan, the 66-year-old founder of the Kinahan cartel — a man who has managed to stay ahead of the game at the apex of organised crime for decades.
That began to change in April last year when the US government listed Kinahan and his cartel as sanctioned entities.
