Move to Downtown Chicago Provides Opportunity for Growth

CHICAGO, IL, AUGUST 25, 2015 - Ehlers, a Leader in Public Finance, announced the relocation of their Illinois operations to the City of Chicago.  The new office is located at 525 West Van Buren Street, a 16-story, class-A office building which is within the Clinton Street Corridor of Chicago's West Loop. Situated just north of the Eisenhower Expressway and within blocks of Chicago's two main commuter stations, Union Station and Ogilvie Transportation Center, as well as the Clinton Station on the CTA Blue Line, the new location is ideal for accessibility to Ehlers' clients, business partners and team members.
Illinois Principal and Municipal Advisor, Jennifer M. Tammen expressed, "This is a perfect time for us to relocate. The location enables us to accommodate our clients more effectively and efficiently. It also allows us to take advantage of better access to our business partners, many of whom are located in the heart of the City." Tammen emphasized, "We are always available to serve our clients.  While our physical location may have changed, by moving the site for the company's Illinois operations from the suburbs to the City, our ability to service clients will only improve."
Steve Apfelbacher, President and Senior Municipal Advisor, Ehlers Companies, echoes Tammen's sentiment. "The Ehlers Illinois team continues to grow its client base. With the addition of three recent hires, we now have greater capacity to provide services to our clients as well."
