Baymar Consulting LLC was founded by Gregg Goneconto, a former Special Agent with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Office of Criminal Investigations (FDA-OCI). Along with his time at FDA-OCI, Gregg’s 25-year federal law enforcement career also included positions with the U.S. Capitol Police, U.S. Marshals Service, and the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s Office of the Inspector General (NRC-OIG).
Gregg honed his skills as a criminal investigator at NRC-OIG where he conducted complex and high-profile investigations into NRC operations at nuclear power plants. During his tenure at FDA-OCI, Gregg successfully investigated a wide-array of unique and challenging criminal cases throughout the country in support of FDA’s public health and safety mission. These investigations ranged from the distribution of adulterated seafood, to a conspiracy to manufacture and distribute the date-rape drug known as GHB, to counterfeit drug sales, an unlicensed mobile mammography operation, the death of a Virginia college student from nitrous oxide bought over the Internet, and the distribution of bogus cancer treatments. Gregg was recognized by the FDA, as well as U.S. Attorney’s Offices in the Southern District of Ohio, Western District of Virginia and District of Maryland for his investigative accomplishments.
Prior to his retirement from FDA-OCI, Gregg served as a Senior Operations Manager for drug investigations at FDA-OCI Headquarters, witnessing first-hand the changing landscape of pharmaceutical supply chain threats. For close to 10 years, Gregg had the unique opportunity to oversee many of this country’s most significant supply chain investigations involving prescription drug diversion and counterfeiting. Drawing on these unique experiences, Gregg was a key proponent and architect of FDA’s successful cargo theft strategy, an agency-wide effort that has been instrumental in helping to dramatically reduce the number of pharmaceutical-related cargo thefts over the last several years. Prior to implementing this program, the pharmaceutical industry had been experiencing unprecedented increases in cargo theft incidents.
More recently, the distribution of illegal, foreign-sourced drug products to medical professionals throughout the country has surfaced as a major supply chain threat, gaining significant attention following several high-profile counterfeiting incidents in 2012. Gregg was one of the guiding forces behind FDA efforts that resulted in numerous well-publicized criminal cases, over 200 OCI investigations nationwide, and hundreds of unprecedented letters from FDA to medical professionals who participated in this activity.
Gregg achieved firearms instructor certifications from the U.S. Secret Service, U.S. Postal Inspection Service, Sig Sauer, Glock, and the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center. In addition, Gregg became the first NRC-OIG firearms instructor in 1992 and was responsible for building that agency’s firearms program from the ground up. He also served as the National Firearms Coordinator for FDA-OCI from 2007 through 2011.
Gregg is a member of the Maryland Investigators and Security Association.
