We are pleased to announce that Steve Keller served as an advisor to the producers of a four part documentary for Netflix that explores the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum theft that occurred in 1990. That theft remains the largest art theft in history with a loss of about a half billion dollars. Steve appears in episode 2. The program is now streaming on Netflix under the Documentary section. It is called “This is a Robbery”.


Filming of Steve’s segments for the program occurred in June 2019. Keller was the security consultant for the museum and pointed out vulnerabilities in his survey before the theft occurred. But before the museum could make corrections, the theft occurred, exploiting the vulnerabilities Steve had pointed out in his survey.


After the theft, he made public statements about the theft that were intended for the ears of the robbers. He was interviewed by the FBI and offered his advice on the theft and immediately following the theft he tested the alarm system to see if it was possible to defeat its detectors.  Steve Keller and Associates, Inc. has done several projects for the Gardner Museum since the theft including the new addition by architect Renzo Piano.


The program is now streaming on Netflix. Keller can also be heard on a podcast produced by WBUR and the Boston Globe on the historic heist and has been interviewed for several books on the subject. Steve Keller has been involved with and played an active role in investigating the three largest art thefts in U.S. history.

We are sorry to report that Stephen Swen, one of our partners, has decided to retire from the company after many years of service. He remains on for a couple of months as we transition his projects to Steve Keller or partner Alicia Ricci, but he will soon move to a chaise lounge on the beach (or somewhere that there are fish or golf balls). We wish him well in his retirement.


Our headquarters occupies an office condominium in the Boulevard Executive Park in Ormond Beach that we’ve owned for over 25 years. This was a good location because Steve Swen lived to the west 45 minutes and Alicia Ricci lived to the north 45 minutes and Steve Keller lived in Ormond Beach. Two years ago, Steve Keller moved an hour north to a new planned community called Nocatee. In 2020, Nocatee was designated by Newsweek magazine as the best place to live in the U.S. It is among the finest planned communities in America with an emphasis on preservation of green space, conservation of water and resources, and other environmental programs. Sixty percent of Nocatee is in green space and lakes. It has over sixty “neighborhoods” of all economic levels and a diverse population. Every resident is a “member” entitled to use all of the community’s amenities. There are massive recreation areas and practice fields for sports, trails for hiking, eight pools, three water parks, fitness centers, outdoor concert areas, dog walk areas, parks, playgrounds, and specialty areas like two paddle board launch areas, fishing ponds, spas, and other facilities. Every resident is a member entitled to use all of the amenities free of charge as part of their residency. Nocatee is a vibrant, growing area with three new medical centers, a growing town center, and a vibrant business environment. It is virtually crime free and is the community of the future.


With Steve Swen’s retirement, we have decided to move the office from Ormond Beach to Nocatee. We have relocated the company to Nocatee Town Center. Nocatee is located south of Jacksonville (just outside its beltway, to be exact), and just across the inter-coastal from Ponte Vedra. If you follow golf, you know Ponte Vedra as the home of the Players Golf Championship at the Sawgrass County Club. Our new address is elsewhere on the page. Our phone numbers and email addresses have not changed.


If you have a project where Steve Swen was your project manager, we will be in touch soon, but know that Steve Keller will personally manage your project through its conclusion. You may begin using our new address immediately.
