New location reinforces firm’s commitment to collaboration, reflects growing presence in region
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (May 16, 2016) – Leading accounting and advisory firm Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) has announced the relocation of its current Southfield office to a new and modern space in the 2000 Town Center Building, also in Southfield.
Baker Tilly Michigan, with local offices in Southfield and 300 River Place Drive in Detroit, is led by Managing Partner Marina Houghton. The firm will move into two floors in the 2000 Town Center Building beginning on May 13.
“We are excited about our move into a new space that will enable us to grow in a more modern and progressive office environment,” Marina Houghton said. “This new space will allow our people to connect in a collaborative space to better serve our clients.”
Baker Tilly entered the Michigan market in 2003 and has now grown to 125 employees with nine partners. The Baker Tilly’s Southfield office includes leaders who are well-connected in the community and serve on a number of board positions.
“Our new modern office is a reflection of our growing and increasingly visible influence in the Michigan market,” Houghton added.
Baker Tilly was seeking to leverage its office environment to facilitate its commitment to providing exceptional client service.
“As a top accounting and advisory firm, Baker Tilly requested a modern and progressive office environment,” Howard Davis, Principal and CEO of Davis & Davis Interior Design in Farmington Hills said. “Occupying two full floors of Southfield’s Town Center, the new space includes innovative huddle areas and hoteling offices, while maintaining spaces that provide the privacy necessary to the nature of their business.”
Davis said an elegant balance was captured using sophisticated elements with a fresh use of color throughout the offices and open areas. This space, designed specifically for Baker Tilly, provides the firm with the environment and technology necessary to continue leading the industry.
The firm is moving from One Towne Square on Northwestern Highway in Southfield, approximately one-half mile from its new office.
