Decosimo Announces Atlanta Office Move

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

The Atlanta office of Decosimo is moving to a new location, effective Feb. 1. The firm is relocating within the Overlook buildings complex in the historic Vinings area from its Overlook III location to Suite 350 of the Overlook II building at 2839 Paces Ferry Road.

Although the physical address is changing, the main office phone number, 770 980-9394 and all other contact information for the firm and its personnel will remain the same.

Free visitor parking for the new Decosimo office will be available in front of the Overlook II building, which is located one block inside I-285 with easy access to I-75.

Decosimo plans to update several of its offices over the next few years, resulting in relocations for a few of the offices in its nine-location office network. The Atlanta office move is the third office relocation for the firm as its Memphis and Cincinnati office moves were effective in 2013.

“It’s our goal with all of our office updates to utilize the available space more efficiently and create a more modern feel for our clients and staff to enjoy,” said Nick Decosimo, firm-wide managing principal for Decosimo.

Atlanta office managing principal James Jackson said, “In our new location, we will realize greater efficiency thanks to the smarter and more standardized configurations.  The new office space will also provide additional upgraded areas for staff collaboration.”

Decosimo’s new offices will be equipped with state-of-the-art conference rooms that the accounting firm plans to make available to clients and business partners for meetings or seminars.  The Overlook II building amenities include a fitness facility with lockers, showers, aerobics studio, free weights and sauna/steam room available for staff use.

But if you sniffed around a bit, you’d learn it was the birthplace of James Cleveland Owens, a man whose name is of no consequence to anyone. I’m proud to say I talked to him ... (click for more)
