Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced today that McGladrey LLP will move its corporate headquarters to the Windy City from Bloomington, Minn.
“I welcome McGladrey to Chicago and commend them on their choice of Chicago for their corporate headquarters,” Emanuel said.. “McGladrey will create significant economic opportunity and job growth throughout Chicago as it supports its local clients and grows its business. Chicago has the talent that will help McGladrey thrive for years to come.”
McGladrey, which has offices in Milwaukee, is the sixth company to relocate its corporate headquarters to the City of Chicago. Attracting corporate headquarters is a key focus of the Plan for Economic Growth and Jobs, produced by World Business Chicago earlier this year at Emanuel’s request. McGladrey joins MillerCoors LLC, Federal Savings Bank, GE Transportation, ThyssenKrupp, Sara Lee, and Sagence Partners as companies that have opted to move either their corporate or North American headquarters to the city.
“As a global business hub, Chicago provides an outstanding climate to fuel McGladrey’s future growth domestically and abroad,” said McGladrey managing partner and chief executive officer Joe Adams. “McGladrey is uniquely focused on serving middle-market businesses, which are the backbone of the global economy, and Chicago is a central location that provides convenient access to our many U.S. offices, our clients and the global locations where they operate. We look forward to making strong contributions to the Chicago community as we continue to grow our talent and client base here.”
McGladrey is the fifth-largest U.S. provider of assurance, tax and consulting services, and it is now the largest certified public accounting firm headquartered in Chicago.
