Friday, May 17, 2013

The Chattanooga office of Lattimore Black Morgan & Cain (LBMC) opened the doors of its new offices in the newly renovated Liberty Tower building before a crowd of over 300 to celebrate LBMC’s recent expansion. At 605 Chestnut Street (at the corner of Sixth and Chestnut), the new location is only a short three blocks from the firms former location, but offers an array of opportunities for growth.

 

Clients and dignitaries dined on an array of delicacies provided by Events with Taste then were taken on personal guided tours of the new LBMC offices. Further enhancing the experience, LBMC secured local vendor The Hot Chocolatier to create special chocolate covered Oreos embellished with the LBMC logo in white chocolate. These treats came packaged in unique gift bags with potential winning numbers for a mini iPad give away directing guests to a specially designed LBMC event landing page where winners were announced Friday morning.

 

“We were humbled by the enthusiastic turn out last night at our Open House.  LBMC’s new office is a state-of-the-art facility providing our clients and our employees a beautiful working environment.  The entire staff was excited to showcase our offices to clients and guests” says Dennis Blanton, LBMC Managing Partner, Chattanooga. ” As LBMC continues to grow in Chattanooga, this new space will allow us the flexibility to add more space and expand while enhancing our technology capabilities allowing us to stay on the cutting edge in our every changing industry.”
