The new office consolidates several smaller SOS Security locations and co-locates regional corporate services to better serve our clients and 1,300 officers working at various close-by client sites.

“Chicago is a critical market for SOS Security and our clients,” said SOS Security Chairman and CEO Edward B. Silverman, CPP. “This move is the result of the hard work and dedication of our employees, and will enable us to better serve both our clients and employees.”

“The new 5,500 square foot office is an ideal location within the business district, which is where the majority of our high-profile clients are located,” added Illinois Region President James Taff. “The move into this amazing space has been energizing for our team and I am excited for the opportunities that lie ahead.”

311 South Wacker Drive is the seventh-tallest building in Chicago and the 24th tallest in the United States. Developed in 1990, the building is a beacon for Chicago business with its illuminated crown while also making an impact at the pedestrian level with its four-story winter garden and one-acre park. It was the winner of Chicago's First BOMA International TOBY Award for The Office Building of the Year in the over one million square feet category.
