CREATING OPPORTUNITIES FOR DETROIT

THE ASSOCIATION OF TWO FIRMS CREATES NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE CITY

Hannah & Associates has been working with Neumann/Smith for over 15 years and it is only natural and fitting that our two firms have formally come together during Detroit’s comeback.  We take great pride in the role we are playing in the City’s revitalization.  It has sparked the imagination of our design professionals and the clients who participate in the process with us. We are jointly and independently committed to providing exceptional design services in the community and look forward to doing great things together in the years to come.  Establishing a collaborative studio space in an historic downtown building was important to show we’re here for the long run and are making a financial as well as personal investment in the future of Detroit.

As a testament of our services, Hannah-Neumann/Smith was recently nominated by our client, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, as an  “inaugural cohort” in the D2D Business Connect initiative of the Detroit Economic Growth Corporation. We are also a certified WBE by the National Minority Supplier Development Council.

A truly great leader understands the many different factors that come with leading others,
