|What's the worst part of getting a new place? Moving, of course. That's why KMS' Ken Stone, here with Yuri Ackerman and Elke Quade, started his new relocation and consulting service. The 28-year moving industry vet will link businesses that are relocating with many different resources in the moving arena—moving companies,phone and furniture dealers, IT services—to insure that all parties have a smoother experience. Also on the firm's docket: a business line that will help start-ups get set up with an office space.|
|Not a lot of firms are moving right now, so KMS, which opened in July, has filled its time by helping Chicago's public schools move all of their furniture out and back in for asbestos abatement and painting over the summer. Yuri is in charge of the technical aspects, which are much more complicated than they used to be, especially for companies that have never set up their own IT before. The team is hoping stimulus money for small- and medium-sized businesses will help more of clients who want to improve space and move over the coming months.|
