Paul Mitchell the School, Toledo
“Sylvania is a perfect fit with our atmosphere and culture. Paul Mitchell is about being friendly, open and encouraging. That’s exactly what Sylvania is. Our students range in age from 17 to 68, some driving almost an hour to be here. The downtown shops and activities have an eclectic appeal, so there’s plenty to do before or after school. We all love being in such a hub of activity.” – Allison Walters, Admissions Leader
“We wanted a close-knit community and our team members to be safe when working late. We love the short walks to get coffee or lunch. Visiting clients love the city’s walkability, and they love our space. We wanted to contribute to the city’s creative juices and our creative director, Anita Holman, helped design a space recognized for excellence by the American Institute of Architects. Associates who have been in New York agencies tell us ‘it trumps them all.’” – Bill Rossiter, CEO
“Our whole business is based on leading change, on creating environments conducive to conversation and creativity. We’re in a beautiful, park-like setting within walking distance to numerous restaurants. We have 400 to 500 client visits per year that often require overnight stays. Walking next door to their hotel is very attractive. And our people travel extensively, so being less than an hour from Detroit Metro Airport and having easy access to major interstates like I-75 and the Ohio Turnpike is vital.” – Jim Haudan, President & Chairman
