BlumShapiro, the largest regional accounting and business consulting firm based in New England, with offices in Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut, officially moved its Rhode Island headquarters into the heart of Cranston in early August.
The firm’s Rhode Island office, currently located at 50 Holden St. in Providence, was set to move into 1 Capital Way in Cranston – at the intersection of Leyden Street and Lovell Avenue – on Aug. 4.
The new location consists of 22,000 square feet of office space, allowing the firm’s Rhode Island office to continue to grow, adding to its existing roster of more than 80 accounting and financial professionals.
“We are very excited about our move to Cranston and look forward to introducing ourselves to the city’s business community,” said Gregory Cabral, Rhode Island office managing partner. “We thank Cranston Mayor Allan Fung, the Cranston City Council, and the Cranston Chamber of Commerce for working with us through our transition and for welcoming us to the city with open arms.”
“On behalf of the residents of Cranston, I am thrilled to welcome BlumShapiro to our city,” Fung said. “Our Office of Economic Development and other members of my administration worked closely with the property owner and BlumShapiro to make their move into Cranston as efficient as possible. BlumShapiro, with their existing team of 80 professionals and 20 new jobs they will bring to the city, is a great addition to our already vibrant workforce, and I am confident the firm’s employees will enjoy everything that Cranston has to offer.”
“I am delighted that BlumShapiro decided to relocate its Rhode Island office to Cranston, and I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to vote in favor of their move,” Cranston City Council President John E. Lanni Jr. said “Adding a company with such a great reputation across the industries it serves will strengthen our local business community, and I wish the firm’s leaders, employees and clients nothing but success. On behalf of the City Council, welcome to Cranston.”
BlumShapiro has been ranked as the #1 financial services firm in New England for two consecutive years by industry publication.
