Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Pete Janer joined Athos in 2018 after a distinguished career in the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), United States Army and the corporate world. He currently serves as President, Athos Group International, overseeing all operations in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean from Athos’ business offices in San Juan.

Pete’s 26 years in DEA was distinguished and unique: from undercover agent in Miami, to interagency task force leader, to Inspector and Acting Special Agent in Charge of DEA’s Caribbean operations. Specific responsibilities included heading a diversion group based in San Juan, managing major international drug and anti-money laundering investigations, and leading DEA’s resident offices in St. Croix and St. Thomas.

In June 2016, after more than 33 years of combined experience in federal law enforcement and military service, Mr. Janer retired from DEA. Throughout his career, Mr. Janer was the recipient of numerous performance, achievement, international and military awards.
