Naperville, Ill.-based IPA 100 firm Sikich LLP (FY20 net revenue of $184.2 million) has launched a new economic development consulting practice focused on helping clients minimize risk and maximize returns from relocation and expansion projects, to be led by new hire Jenny Massey.
With nearly 15 years of experience in economic development consulting, Massey has worked closely with businesses across many industries, including technology, aerospace, logistics, life sciences, professional services, advanced manufacturing and ag-bioscience. She advises these companies on issues such as site selection, incentive procurement and compliance, helping them capitalize on local and state tax credits, training grants and site-specific incentives. Prior to joining Sikich, she co-founded FairWinds Advisors, a national consulting firm specializing in site selection and incentives procurement.
“Our priority is to help our clients grow their businesses, and economic development consulting is essential to efficiently and strategically scaling a company,” says Ray Lampner, PIC of CPA consulting services. “Jenny’s experience and insights will be invaluable to clients as they look to add headcount, expand their footprint and make capital investments.”
