Business Management Consulting Firm Slalom to Open Detroit Office

Slalom is continuing the movement in Detroit by moving right in the heart of the city after announcing the opening of its doors on October 3rd. On June 5th Slalom began to call the First National Building home. Located on the 19th floor you will find unique culture pieces and even graffiti done by local artist Fel3000ft. The layout and design resonates with Slalom’s core values, which you’ll find on the walls of every collaborative space. This is a reminder to Slalom employees that they are encouraged to be their authentic selves. Slalom’s goal has been to focus on Detroit and stay committed to its people, clients, and the community.

Slaloms story extends in 25 markets with Detroit being its newest story. Slalom is a purpose-driven consulting firm that helps companies solve business problems and build for the future. Slalom is here to help local companies produce innovative solutions with top talent in each industry. Detroit’s market already has clients in industries that span across healthcare, automotive, financial services, high tech and professional services.

Slalom’s onshore delivery model is a key differentiator when it comes to consulting. Hire locally, deliver locally. This innovative model is attracting talent near and far to make Detroit their home. “After having traveled and worked all over the globe helping companies, I’m excited about building a team that could help create hundreds of Detroit jobs—right here,” said General Manager David Rouls.

“I was born and raised here, have always had my home here. I love Detroit,” said Rouls. Rouls along with Sales Director, Michael French, sit on boards of two charitable Detroit organizations, THAW and The Mariners Inn. Slalom’s commitment to the city is outlined in its core values and is a huge reason why people come to Slalom to start a career.

With a final note, Rouls said, “Detroit is in the middle of a renaissance in every sense of the word, and we’re launching Slalom Detroit right in the middle of that. How perfect is it that we, Slalom, get to be a part of this?” Looking ahead, Slalom is excited to be in the middle of the renaissance, watching the comeback of Detroit unfold.
