Accuity, the leading global provider of risk and compliance, payments and know-your-customer solutions, has moved its global headquarters to Evanston, Illinois. Previously based in Skokie, Illinois, the company is moving to Evanston where Mayor Tisdahl and the Evanston Chamber of Commerce will celebrate the occasion with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 2:00 p.m. Central Time on Monday, February 8, 2016.
Accuity is part of Reed Business Information (RBI) which in turn is part of RELX Group, a world leading provider of information solutions, listed on the London and Amsterdam Stock Exchanges. The move marks a major investment for Accuity in new premises that will benefit both clients and staff.
In addition, as a technology and data company, Accuity is looking forward to the recruitment opportunities offered by Evanston’s proximity to the prestigious Northwestern University and its easy access to Chicago.
The new premises at 1007 Church Street in Evanston offer a collaborative work environment and have been fitted to reflect Accuity’s close connection to Chicago, with conference rooms named after great Chicago landmarks (The Hancock, Soldier Field, etc.) as well after major Accuity locations worldwide, including London and Paris.
The company has a long connection with Evanston through “Accuity In Action.” Accuity employees volunteer their time to help people in the local community and have been involved in several local initiatives which embody the company’s philosophy of making a difference in the communities where they live and work.
Hugh Jones, president and CEO of Accuity said, “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. 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. I remain incredibly proud of what we have accomplished to date with Accuity. My sincere hope and wish is that this significant investment in our new space, our employees and our business will create many more successful years.”
