Sikich Moves to New Corporate Headquarters in Naperville

Fast-Growing Public Accounting and Advisory Firm Leases 80,000 Square Feet in Tellabs Building Located Just Off Interstate 88; Relocation Marks One of 2011's Most Significant Chicago Area Suburban Leases

AURORA, IL--(Marketwire - Nov 18, 2011) - Sikich LLP, a nationally-ranked top 50 public accounting and consulting firm (www.sikich.com), will on Monday officially take residence in its new corporate headquarters at 1415 W. Diehl Rd., Naperville, IL. The rapidly growing firm has signed a 12-year lease for approximately 80,000 square feet in the corporate Tellabs Inc. building located near the border of Aurora and Naperville at Interstate 88 and Route 59.

Under the terms of the agreement, Sikich will immediately occupy the building's entire 4th floor. Sikich signage will be featured prominently on the building, visible from the interstate. Approximately 150 employees will move from the current Aurora headquarters to the new location by December. The Graphic Design & Marketing Services Team, already located in Naperville, will also relocate to the new corporate office. This move doubles the company's available headquarters space and marks this as one of the area's biggest suburban leases in 2011.

"Our company has experienced substantial growth over the past several years," said Jim Sikich, CEO and managing partner of the firm, "and we're very proud of the loyal client base and high caliber of employees we've been fortunate enough to attract to our firm. Our goal as we searched for a new headquarters was to remain in a suburban location that's convenient for our area clients, while expanding our space to provide an optimum working environment for our employees.

"The Tellabs building was the ideal choice for us. It has an easily accessible central location with ample parking, along with the space to house our current team members, and room for us to grow. Additionally, the facilities and amenities we can now offer our clients are top quality," Sikich concluded.

Sikich's search for new, larger headquarters space was a two-year process for the company, which has seen consistently strong growth -- an annual average of 17 percent -- over the past 10 years. Founded in Champaign, IL in 1928, Sikich has, over the years, expanded through acquiring other companies, bolstering its core accounting and advisory practice area with investment banking, award-winning technology services, wealth management expertise and other consultative practices. It has emerged as one of the Midwest's preeminent and most reputable privately-owned advisory firms.

The firm has seven other locations in Illinois, offices in St. Louis and Indianapolis and employs nearly 400 in total, located predominantly in the Chicago area.
