Pinkerton, the corporate risk management company founded by famed detective Allan Pinkerton, has moved its global headquarters from Parsippany to Ann Arbor, Michigan, it announced Monday.
The company said in a news release that its executive team and administrative staff have already moved to the 11,000-square-foot building at 101 N. Main St. in downtown Ann Arbor.
"Ann Arbor is the perfect location from which to both grow our Michigan business as well as strategically plan and execute on our global growth strategy," Pinkerton President Jack Zahran said in a prepared statement. "This is a community of creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship and the talent pool is outstanding. We are thrilled to be here and look forward to immersing ourselves in Southeast Michigan.”
The Detroit Free Press reported last week that about 30 employees will be based at the new Michigan site, including many being shifted from Parsippany. The company will be hiring about 10 more people in the near future, the Free Press said.
Pinkerton, which has more than 50 facilities around the world, said the move should be complete by mid-August.
