An accounting firm is relocating its Midwest headquarters from Skokie to Chicago, in a move that's expected to bring at least 150 jobs to the Loop.

Chicago Mayor Emanuel says Reznick Group will make the move in the next year.

In a statement Monday, Emanuel says he's certain Reznick Group "will find world-class employees and will be a strong member of Chicago's outstanding professional services business community." Reznick is expected to bring 150 to 200 jobs to Chicago by 2015.

The firm was founded in 1977 and is ranked among the top 20 U.S. accounting firms.

George Klenovich of Reznick Group says his firm is confident that being located in downtown Chicago will allow it to attract and retain the top-quality talent needed to help the company grow.
