Pinkerton, global provider of corporate risk management solutions, has opened its first office in Canada with a Toronto location.

According to a statement, the new office will provide Canadian clients with a suite of solutions, including risk assessment, risk profile analysis, due diligence, investigations, background screening, crisis management, intelligence services, protection services, and security risk management.

“The opening of our Toronto office marks Pinkerton’s first permanent foray into the Canadian marketplace and further extends our global network of intelligence-gathering resources,” said Pinkerton president Jack Zahran. “We’re eager to bring our unique blend of holistic risk management services to Canadian organizations throughout Greater Toronto and beyond to help them analyze the risk landscape and implement strategic initiatives to prevent disruptions to business continuity.”

Richard Thomas has been appointed operations manager for the Toronto office and will oversee Pinkerton’s Canadian operations. Thomas was previously senior manager of operations of the central region for ASAP Secured Inc. and has also worked as a loss prevention investigator for Hudson’s Bay Company.

Pinkerton was first founded in 1850 in the U.S. by Allan Pinkerton as the Pinkerton National Detective Agency. It currently operates in approximately 60 locations globally.

Apologies if this posting is misleading. Pinkerton does indeed have a Canadian history but has recently relaunched in the Canadian market. More details will be available in the next issue of Canadian Security magazine. — NS
