Overview

Located on the fourth floor of the historic Globe Building, Varnum’s current office space opened in 2017 after almost 30 years at our former location a few blocks away. The Globe Building is also home to the Kalamazoo Beer Exchange. The office features an open layout and exposed brick and beam décor. Fred Schubkegel serves as the lead partner for the office.

About Kalamazoo

Kalamazoo offers all the perks of a big city with a moderate cost of living and a fraction of the traffic. Located in southwest Michigan, halfway between Chicago and Detroit, Kalamazoo has a dynamic arts and culture scene that includes a multitude of events, classes, performances and festivals.

In the fall of 2005, a group of anonymous donors interested in the economic strength and quality of life in the city of Kalamazoo made an amazing gift: every Kalamazoo Public School graduate is provided the opportunity to attend post-secondary education with up to a 100% tuition scholarship. Called the Kalamazoo Promise, all students who graduate from Kalamazoo Public Schools, reside in the district and have been students four years or more are given funding for college tuition at any public university or community college in the state of Michigan.
