retired old gentleman? - Javier Solana is the latest of 13 directors of a British spy company...since November 2010!
"....This is a story that has gone on largely unnoticed in the background of the news, towards the end of the news programs and in the middle pages of the tabloid press. It is however a massive conspiracy that I believe may involve the assassination of a British spy, Neil Haywood, in China by one of the Communist party’s most prominent members in November 2011.(farmer: when also skyfall filming began in November 2011 about a British Spy in China who should be assassinated! - the film was officially given a release date of 9 November 2012) If you’re interested then please do read on this conspiracy involves both US and British intelligence, corruption in the Communist party of China and the shadowy world of corporate intelligence all coupled with an assassination and Chinese official attempting to defect to American intelligence..."
"... One of the companies that Haywood also worked for on a freelance basis on various projects, mostly believed to be evaluating the economic status of various Chinese companies was Hakluyt, and this is where his story gets very interesting.Hakluyt and Company is not your everyday think tanks, it was founded by two senior former members of the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) named Christopher James who’s job at six was to lease with the top UK firms (he may also have been SAS before to joining six) and Mike Reynolds who created the counter-terrorism branch of the SIS and then worked with MI5’s Middle East desk and both of whom set up the company 1995 working out of an office in Mayfair. Its role according to James is to provide private business with the kind of intelligence usually only accessed by Government by utilising its unique set of contacts to create intelligence reports. It boasts that this information is not available off the net or through the media and it only deals with the business and government elite.
Hakluyt itself is very media shy for a company whose clients include almost one quarter of the FTSC 100 companies and it’s no wonder, it is in effect the intelligence service of the corporate elite and the founders have created a mega-intelligence company that few know off. Not only does it draw form the vast number of ex-SIS officers but also members of big business and ex-government officials. James stepped down and managing director in 2006 and was replaced by ex-MI6 officer Keith Craig. However other members of Hakluyt’s “international advisory board” however include former US presidential candidate Bill Bradley, a former Foreign Minister for Australia, Sir David Manning former Ambassador to the United States and Javier Solana a former Sectary General of NATO to name but a few members of what makes up this truly international corporate intelligence service that is augmented with former members of MI6."

Hakluyt & Company Limited is a British private intelligence agency, "...staffed almost entirely by ex-intelligence [services] staff", according to a 2006 report in The Times.
"In joining Mayfair-based Hakluyt, Sir John follows in the footsteps of his Rolls-Royce predecessor, Sir Ralph Robins, who sits on Hakluyt's advisory board, as well as diplomats including Sir David Manning, who was Tony Blair's principal foreign affairs adviser in the lead-up to the invasion of Iraq.
Past advisory board members also include Sir Fitzroy Maclean, on whom Ian Fleming is said to have modelled James Bond." Link
