Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s quest to make Chicago a global city continued Wednesday when he announced that Huron Consulting Group committed to adding 400 to 600 jobs to its Chicago headquarters office over the next three years.
This addition brings the number of job Emanuel has introduced during his administration to 15,000 and brings his desire to make Chicago a global city an inch closer.
"I am focused on making Chicago the most business-friendly city in the world, and helping companies like Huron expand into global players in key industries is central to this strategy,” Emanuel said in a statement.
Huron Consulting Group, named one of the Best Firms to Work For in 2011 by Consulting magazine, provides business consulting services to various companies facing complex industry issues. The growing company increased its profits from $35.1 in 2006 to $606.3 million in 2011, adding nearly 200 companies to their client list.
The increase in jobs was part of a plan Huron released earlier this year to expand their headquarters and improve city leadership.
