2014 : Pinkerton World Headquarters Moving to Ann Arbor

August 7, 2022 all-day

Pinkerton, the detective agency so famous that it is credited with giving private eyes their nickname, is moving its global headquarters to downtown Ann Arbor.

“Our company was born in the Midwest, and we’re very happy to be back where we started,” Jack Zahran, the company president, said in an interview today from his new office, which is still being unpacked.

But more than going back to its roots, Pinkerton is a company with a storied past steeped in American history that also is seeking to reposition itself — and its Hollywood image of tough guys on horseback guarding railways and presidents — to a global risk management firm.
