McGladrey Relocates to Baltimores Harbor East
Leading accounting firm moves more than 200 employees to city location
BALTIMORE, MD – Today, McGladrey, one of the nation’s leading assurance, tax, and consulting firms, announced that it has officially relocated to its new Baltimore Harbor East location at 100 International Drive, Suite 1400, Baltimore, Maryland 21202. The firm announced in December 2009 that it had signed a 10-year lease for 38,500 square feet of Class-A office space in the new Legg Mason Tower and would move hundreds of employees from its previous location in Timonium, MD in summer 2010. As the largest accounting firm in Baltimore (source: Baltimore Business Journal), the firm’s move to the city demonstrates its positioning for greater accessibility and presence in this major business center, which is consistent with the firm’s overall growth strategy. The firm expects to leverage its presence to promote brand awareness, attract top talent and improve overall business development initiatives.
“Baltimore is a major financial and business center, and we are pleased to, once again, be in the heart of this dynamic marketplace,” said Marty Brunk, office managing partner for the new Baltimore facility. “Our employees are highly engaged in business, charitable and community organizations in the Baltimore metro area, and this physical presence in the city will allow us to increase our involvement in the community through business, social and volunteer endeavors.”
The space has been outfitted in alignment with the firm’s flexible work environment and work/life balance policies, and will use state-of-the-art technology and flexible work space amenities to allow employees to work where and when they need to work to best accommodate client needs. The new space will also provide clients, business associates and employees the many benefits of doing business in a leading East Coast office-retail-dining-entertainment-lifestyle center. Office space in Harbor East is constructed using green building and energy efficient techniques and technologies.
Clients in the mid-Atlantic are currently served through McGladrey offices in Baltimore, Frederick, and Gaithersburg, Maryland; Washington, DC; Tysons Corner-Vienna and Richmond, Virginia; and seven offices throughout the Carolinas, including Charlotte and Raleigh.
