CHICAGO (CBS) — For the second time in five days, Mayor Rahm Emanuel is announcing that he’s lured an employer from the suburbs to the city.
As WBBM Newsradio’s Regine Schlesinger reports, last week it was Motorola Mobility that joined the mayor in announcing its move from Libertyville to Chicago’s Merchandise Mart, bringing more than 3,000 jobs to the city.

Now, on a smaller scale, the mayor says Reznick Group, a top 20 accounting firm, is moving its Midwest headquarters from Skokie to downtown Chicago. That move will transfer as many as 200 jobs to the city by the end of 2015.
George Klenovich with Reznick Group says the move will help attract “top-quality talent” that will allow the company to “grow” and “prosper.”
Since he took office last year, the mayor has made 32 such announcements, representing more than 20,000 added jobs for the city.
