Pinkerton, a global provider of comprehensive risk management services including security consulting and investigations, executive protection, employment screening, and protective intelligence, has announced the opening of its new office in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Pinkerton President Jack Zahran made the announcement. Located at 4101 Perimeter Center Dr., Pinkerton’s Oklahoma City location will offer businesses in the surrounding area an extensive array of comprehensive risk management services, including embedded Pinkerton professionals, contract security management & consulting, executive protection, comprehensive risk assessments, investigations, and enterprise safety solutions. Having a presence in Oklahoma City will help solidify Pinkerton’s presence in the heartland of America and allow the company to scale up efforts quickly and seamlessly in surrounding areas to help clients protect their tangible assets, like people and property, and intangible assets, such as brand, reputation and image. “As Pinkerton looks to expand its U.S.-based operations and grow its presence in strategic locations across the country, we quickly identified the value that an Oklahoma City location would provide not only to our current roster of Fortune 500 clients, but also to prospective clients and leads,” said Zahran. “The nature of comprehensive risk management continues to evolve, and we look forward to helping organizations in and around this region identify the risks facing their organizations today—and in the future—and help them prepare plans to address those risk factors to ensure ongoing business continuity.” Jason Maddox will serve as operations manager for all operations in Oklahoma and surrounding areas.
