The Businessman was one of Ned Bolger's henchman.
The businessman met with Roberts inside of a hotel after Roberts called Carter the previous day. Roberts was supposed to meet with Carter, but instead, Bolger sent him. The businessman said he was there to check Roberts for weapons and scanned his body with a metal detector to be sure he was clean. The businessman said the meeting was moved to the top floor and they got into the elevator to travel up.
During the ride, Bolger spotted a disguised Sydney and knew that something was off. Just as Roberts and the businessman arrived at the top floor, Bolger activated a set of explovies above the elevator and it began to fall. Roberts and the businessman were thrown into the air and Roberts screamed horribly until it landed on the ground, killing them instantly.
