With regards to the move, Danielle Russell and Guy Schueller, co-site leads for Google Birmingham, cited Detroit’s rich history of culture and innovation that the company is excited to join: “Our new space will not only provide room for future growth, but will also give us the opportunity to contribute to the dynamic economic and community activity happening in Detroit.”.
