The safest possible place. Anywhere.

We are the North Star Support Group.


“I’ve learnt the hard way how important it is to always keep your boots on, even when totally broken and hungering for rest, as well as the importance of understanding how minor details can quickly lead to dramatic escalations. I’m committed to growing a business that is, at its core, constantly prepared for the unforeseen on behalf of our clients.

Success is not only the result of commitment and discipline, but it also comes from lessons learned in years of experience when wisdom is mitigating the exuberance of youth.”

Alessandro Martello, CEO & Founder
