On July 2nd, Clark Schaefer Hackett will open its new Miami Valley office at Austin Landing, a mixed-use development located at I-75’s exit 41, just south of Dayton. The 20,000 square feet of space on the top floor of the newly constructed office building will house approximately 80 Clark Schaefer Hackett associates formerly of the firm’s Middletown and Dayton offices.
The Miami Valley office will be a firmwide center of expertise, housing the Chairs of the Manufacturing and Distribution, Professional Services, International Services, Employee Benefit Plan Audit, and Qualified Plan Administration and Consulting Groups. It will also be a collaborative environment for associates with specialties in Estate, Trust, and Succession Planning, Not-For-Profit Organizations, and Small Business Solutions, among others.
“We want to treat our staff like the top talent they are, by providing a modern, inviting space,” says Herb Lemaster, Shareholder-In-Charge of the Miami Valley Office. “And we want to continue to attract high-caliber professionals.”
Over the past year, the firm has evaluated space needs in each of our six markets, recognizing that the current real estate dynamics offer ripe opportunity to negotiate favorable deals. In each case, the goal has been to maximize the move by physically aligning our staff in a configuration that enhances collaboration to best serve clients. Each of the new premises also allows space for future expansion.
In the first of these moves last July, the firm’s Cincinnati office settled into a larger and more modern office location, mere blocks from its previous downtown address. Firm leadership is currently investigating options for office relocation within the Springfield area, as well as space that would allow for strategic growth in Columbus.
Just five months ago, Clark Schaefer Hackett acquired Toledo’s Brell Holt & Co., increasing our Northeast Ohio presence and our ability to serve clients with more specialized services. CSH associates moved into the former Brell Holt offices, combining specialties and talents under one roof and easing administrative burdens.
In 2011, the firm also established its growing Cleveland office.
Clark Schaefer Hackett has earned a reputation as a leader in community support, and we remain committed from our new locations. Through volunteerism and participation in local organizations, firm professionals continue to serve the communities and greater regions where we live, work and serve clients.
As part of that commitment, we are pleased to be the presenting sponsors of the Everest Award, honoring leaders and legends of the I-75 growth corridor on July 19. Honorees will be Larry Schumacher, president of Schumacher Dugan Construction, Rajesh K Soin, Chairman and CEO of Soin International, an James Wainscott, Chairman, President and CEO of AK Steel.
