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 (OCI). Gregg witnessed the changing landscape of pharmaceutical supply chain threats over a 10-year span as a Senior Operations Manager for drug investigations at OCI headquarters until his law enforcement retirement in 2013.
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 and beyond. 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 may have obtained unapproved foreign-sourced drugs for their practices.
From May 2013 through December 2019, Gregg partnered with the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) as a supply chain security consultant. Ensuring the continued success of NABP’s Verified-Accredited Wholesale Distributors (VAWD) program within an environment of persistent supply chain security challenges has been one of his most rewarding professional achievements.
Along with his time at 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.
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 OCI from 2007 through 2011.
