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.”
