Brown Smith Wallace Expands Illinois Presence
CPA and consulting firm extends its footprint with three offices: Creve Coeur, St. Charles and new Edwardsville-area location
ST. LOUIS (February 7, 2011) Brown Smith Wallace LLC has acquired more than 4,500 square feet of office space in Glen Carbon, IL, to accommodate up to 20 employees with an option to double the space for further expansion. The firm has an existing base of clients in Illinois as well as close to 15 percent of its employees who reside there. The expansion builds off the 2009 acquisition of Qualified Plan Services of Highland, IL, by Benefit Plans Plus, a subsidiary of Brown Smith Wallace.
“Southern Illinois is a vital part of the St. Louis metro area, home to many successful organizations and talented professionals,” said Harvey Wallace, managing member of Brown Smith Wallace. “Our expanded presence there affords new convenience to our clients and employees, and represents our continued investment in the growth of our firm.” The office is located at 2220 S. State Route 157 in the Meridian II building.
Benefit Plans Plus is a retirement plan design and consulting subsidiary of Brown Smith Wallace. It maintains eight full-time employees at the Illinois office, while Brown Smith Wallace will initially host from two to 12 staff members at the location. Employees may “hotel” at the location, reserving designated workspace to conveniently accommodate meetings and office time, closer to their Illinois home or to nearby clients.
