SafeSend, a market-leading provider of workflow automation and client collaboration technology solutions for tax and public accounting professionals, announced today the relocation of its headquarters to 777 E. Eisenhower Pkwy, Ann Arbor, MI. The move will accommodate a growing team as well as provide amenities to contribute to the health and wellness of employees, functional spaces for collaboration, and a state-of-the-art environment to support a hybrid workforce.
“We are excited to announce the move,” stated Scott Fleszar, Chief Executive Officer. “Our new office space in the ‘777 Building,’ positions SafeSend headquarters in one of the most recognizable business locations in Ann Arbor. It’s a highly desirable location and supports our team as we continue to build solutions that solve our customers’ needs by automating every client touchpoint across the tax engagement life cycle.”
Steve Dusablon, Co-founder and Chief Innovation Officer, added, “The new headquarters provides the room we need to grow and demonstrates our passion for our employees by providing an environment that promotes collaboration, creativity and camaraderie. When we focus on our team, they can focus on innovation and solving real-world problems for our customers. Our new space offers a home base for all of our remote employees, offering more opportunity to leverage in-person collaboration.”

Tax and accounting firms benefit from automated, centralized, and standardized workflows, and their clients benefit from an intuitive, secure, and engaging online experience.
“The new SafeSend headquarters is an important investment in our future and puts us in a position to better serve our customers which ultimately helps them better serve their clients,” commented Fleszar. “We have seen tremendous growth over the last year and will continue on that trajectory over the foreseeable future, so selecting a facility that supports the needs of our expanding team will help ensure success as the business scales.”
