Marcum LLP, a top national accounting and business advisory firm, opens the doors of its new downtown Cleveland office today on the eighth floor of the Fifth Third Center at 600 Superior Avenue.

Marcum recently expanded its Midwest presence through a merger with Skoda Minotti that included the addition of nearly 200 professionals and three offices, two of which are located in Northeast Ohio. The firm now has three Ohio offices: downtown Cleveland, Mayfield Village and Akron. This expansion into downtown Cleveland was planned prior to the two firms merging.

“Our clients continue to rely on us as a key business partner to fuel their growth and success. As these client relationships expand, our firm continues to grow as a result,” said Gregory J. Skoda, senior partner. “Our expansion into downtown Cleveland is a milestone for us—it puts our professionals within close proximity of many downtown clients, which helps us serve them more effectively and it underscores our commitment to strengthening our region as a whole.”

“In addition to servicing clients more effectively, our new downtown location will allow us to grow our robust events program as well as strengthen our ability to attract, recruit and retain top talent, especially among the new generation of professionals in their 20s and 30s,” said Jonathan J. Shoop, CPA, office managing partner of the new downtown Cleveland office.

Nearly 30 employees from existing Marcum offices in the region have relocated to the new downtown Cleveland location and an additional 20 new hires are planned.
