Office in the Flats

As many of you know, Don and I met at work in 1983. The office of Arthur Andersen was located at the corner of East 9th and Superior, in the East Ohio Gas building in downtown Cleveland.

In 1989, Arthur Andersen (the accounting firm) and its consulting division split. Don was in the consulting division which was at the time called Andersen Consulting.

Then, on January 1, 2001, Arthur Andersen became Accenture. Don retired from Accenture in 2010.

A couple of weeks ago, the Accenture office moved from Public Square to the old Sammy's restaurant building on the east bank of the Flats.

As alumni of the company, we were invited to an open house tonight to see the new space. The decor was very modern and a little rustic because of all the wood beams left from the old building.

 But the best part was the view. I took this photo around 6:30 while it was still light out.

And this photo as the sun was setting. It might be difficult to concentrate with a scene like that outside your window.
