Marcum LLP Expands Midwest Presence with New Chicago Office

New York City, NY – Marcum LLP, a top national accounting and advisory firm that entered the Midwest through a merger with Frost, Ruttenberg & Rothblatt, P.C. late last year, is expanding its Chicago presence with a new office in the downtown Loop area. The new location at 500 West Monroe Street replaces Marcum’s existing Chicago office and adds 12,000-square feet to the Firm’s footprint in the Chicago region.

Marcum is one of the largest independent accounting firms in the U.S., with offices across the country, as well as Grand Cayman, China and Ireland. The Chicago region is a strategic market in the Firm’s national footprint, and its expansion there signals Marcum’s intention to stake a significance presence in the area.

Richard Sgarlata, Illinois partner-in-charge, said, “Marcum’s downtown expansion is an essential phase of our strategy of continued growth in the Chicago market.  The additional space will allow us to accelerate the integration of many of the Firm’s nationally ranked practice specialties into this region while supporting our existing practices such as healthcare services, which is one of our traditional strengths here.”

Cary Buxbaum, partner-in-charge of the new office, said, “Marcum has already established a highly visible presence in downtown Chicago that is punctuated by our branding campaign on the iconic ‘L’ train.  The new office is our next ‘Loop stop,’ and we look forward to building a thriving practice in the state-of-the-art space.”

Jeffrey M. Weiner, Marcum’s managing partner, said, “Chicago is a strategic region within Marcum’s national footprint, and the new office will be instrumental in our aggressive growth plans.  Under Rick Sgarlata and Cary Buxbaum’s leadership, we have high expectations for the Firm’s continued growth in this region of the country.”
