Chip Massey

Former FBI Special Agent Chip Massey has led high-profile criminal cases, investigated the September 11thterrorist attacks, helped the CIA track down spies, and spearheaded the New York FBI Office’s Crisis Negotiations Teams–in all five boroughs.

Almost unbelievably, prior to joining the FBI, Chip was a pastor in two churches in the Eastern Shore of Maryland.  That’s where he developed his powers of empathy and connection that proved to be such valuable additions to the techniques he learned at Quantico, and that make his audiences and his consulting clients especially appreciate and respect his advice. 

Today, Chip Massey puts to work  the high-stakes negotiation skills he refined during his 20 + years in federal law enforcement.  As co-founder of The Convincing Company, Chip guides executives and their teams in how to apply the bureau’s sophisticated negotiation techniques to every situation. 

His clients include technology startups, entrepreneurs, and C-suite executives at Fortune 500 companies, including Facebook, Samsung, and Goldman Sachs. 

A natural communicator and teacher, Chip has trained FBI agents, police officers and various federal officials in hostage negotiation techniques, de-escalation, and other law enforcement issues. Additionally, he has taught thousands of military personnel and civilians at West Point, Princeton, Cornell, Columbia, and other high-profile colleges.
