DETROIT (WWJ) — The Grand Rapids-based technology consulting firm C/D/H has moved its southeast Michigan office from Royal Oak to downtown Detroit.

The company says the move puts C/D/H in Detroit’s Tech Hub Network, and closer to about 40 percent of the firm’s Southeast Michigan client base, about 20 percent of which have a downtown location.

“If you want to do something innovative, something that will put you ahead of your competition, you need a firm that thinks differently than the other guys,” said Paul Hillman, partner at C/D/H. “That’s C/D/H. That’s why forward-thinking companies are moving to downtown Detroit.”

C/D/H first established a presence in Southeast Michigan in 2005 with an office in the Southfield Town Center, then moved to Royal Oak, and now to the historic Wright Kay building at 1500 Woodward Ave. C/D/H will occupy the fourth floor of the Wright Kay building. Other Wright Kay building occupants include Neumann/Smith Architecture, the firm that renovated the new space for C/D/H, and restaurant Wright & Co.
