Moss Adams dusted off the freakishly giant scissors yesterday, as the firm opened a Santa Clara office, according to the San Jose Business Journal.
This is positive news seeing how office closures (and rumors of others) seem to be more prevalent than offices opening.
Rick Anderson, the Seattle-based company’s chairman and CEO, said Moss Adams has “long served clients in the area and it makes sense to have a physical presence in the local market. Moss Adams is a firm that is growing and expanding to meet client and market demand.”
We couldn’t tell you if Rick was actually on hand for the festivities,
we’ve been unable to run anyone down and so far there isn’t a press release on the firm’s website. So if you’re in the know, get in touch or discuss in the comments.
