Solaren Wrapped 2023 Like a Spotify Playlist!

The year 2023 showed a lot of major changes for us at Solaren Risk Management. We have worked with organizations to improve the quality of life in Nashville, major brands and clients to ensure smooth success of their operations and events and our own staff to provide fun and engaging activities for everyone.

Critical Infrastructure Has a Critical Need

In March, we announced our partnership with LiveView Technologies.

We have been extremely privileged and proud to work with this company to help provide more capabilities and options to our clients for virtual guarding with the most advanced camera systems available. We have had a very successful year working with LVT as we provide mobile units to all of Tennessee and some neighboring states.

Solaren was proud to be the VIP Sponsor of Taste hosted by the Tennessee Pride Chamber of Commerce

Our partnership with TEMPO from Gibson Gives

We also worked on improving the safety and peace of mind for those closer to home in downtown Nashville through our partnership with TEMPO from Gibson Gives to place Narcan units in bars downtown. This partnership reflects our promise to empower the people of Nashville in times of great need and remind them that we are ever present to serve them.


We managed security for multiple events and music festivals

As for events, we managed security for multiple events and music festivals such as the Hot Chocolate 5k, St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Sol Fest, Pride, Re:Set, TomatoArts and Pilgrimage. We are proud to support clients who promote the arts and music industry in Tennessee and beyond. Nashville and Tennessee as a whole are vibrant with creative communities and interesting cultures that deserve to be highlighted.


We support more than just the music industry though, as we provided security and traffic services for Tanger Outlet which provides so many more jobs for the community and breathes new life into the area with its event space and open concept of name-brand stores. Alongside the new addition of Tanger to our clientele, we served Gaylord Opryland and Opry Mills Mall like we have for years now. We are always prepared and proud to work with Gaylord Opryland on Black Friday to ensure that this staple of Nashville has a successful weekend. All these events were great opportunities for us to show our commitment to our community and pride in the cultures hosted in the state of Tennessee.

Taste is an event highlighting the various delicacies of each city in which it is hosted, and those who attended were able to truly explore the best that Nashville has to offer.

National night Out event hosted by Opry Mills Mall

Solaren participated in the National night Out event hosted by Opry Mills Mall in August where we showed pride in our industry and support for law enforcement in the state of Tennessee and city of Nashville. We also sponsored and participated in the annual dove shoot hosted by Triton Construction in September and TASTE Nashville hosted by the Tennessee Pride Chamber in October. Solaren is involved in so many different communities in Tennessee as we prioritize being active supporters of those whose values match ours and are integral players in Tennessee.

Solaren Event Security 2023 Christmas Party

The highlight of December was our company Christmas party

The highlight of December was our company Christmas party where all our staff and members of leadership were able to come together under the spirit of thanks and joy to remember the year and celebrate our successes. We had a significant number of staff win awards for their outstanding dedication to punctuality and five years of service. Each division provided one individual to win a trophy for their efforts this past year as well.

We want to thank each and every one of our clients, staff and supporters for making this year such an exciting and successful one to remember. Thank you all and have a Happy Holidays and New Year!
