Accuity moves global headquarters to Evanston

Robin Opsahl, Assistant City Editor

Financial services firm Accuity moved its global headquarters from Skokie to Evanston on Monday for better access to potential recruits from Northwestern and transportation to Chicago, company officials said.

The company hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Accuity’s new offices, 1007 Church St., where Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl and officials from the Evanston Chamber of Commerce welcomed the business to the city. The company finalized its plans to move to Evanston in May, when City Council approved a resolution to provide free parking to Accuity employees in the nearby public garage at 1800 Maple Ave.

Evanston and Accuity have collaborated previously through the company’s “Accuity In Action” initiative, through which employees volunteer in their communities and work within local projects.  

“I am extremely pleased to welcome our staff and customers to our new office in Evanston and I look forward to Accuity strengthening its links with the local community,” said Hugh Jones, president and CEO of Accuity, in a news release. “This project represents an enormous opportunity for us to take all the positive elements of our rich history and culture at Accuity and wrap it into a completely new and fresh look, in line with our successful journey as a business.”
