WAUKESHA — Image Makers Advertising will move from its home of nearly 20 years in downtown Waukesha to a building in Brookfield next month.

The new location at the corner of Greenfield Avenue and Calhoun Road and will have easy access to the interstate.

Reasons provided for the move include having the entire staff on one floor with more meeting and collaborative space. The space will also have a special employee area — the TK Lounge — named after the company founder Tom Kaupp.

President and Owner Tina Chovanec cited growth as the main reason for the move, along with concern for her staff.

“I introduced flexible hours when I joined IMA, so team members are coming and going between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.,” she said in the announcement. “This has meant walking several blocks, often in the dark, to get to the parking structure down the road. Our new location has generous parking near the entrance and is an amazing fit for our style. We’re looking forward to great things in the heart of Brookfield, and being close to all the great restaurants, shops, and services in our new neighborhood and the nearby Bluemound/Moorland corridor.”

In addition, IMA is hoping the new location will help it to reach more small businesses. IMA is looking to transition to the new space in mid-to-late-February.
