Simmons & Brake - More Than Numbers
Simmons & Brake is an accounting firm that occupies the northwest corner of Windridge Office Building. Both partners are certified public accountants and long time Indianapolis residents. After graduating from North Central, Jay Simmons attended Indiana University and graduated with his bachelor degree in 1973. He worked for a regional accounting firm and then served as the assistant city controller for Indianapolis for four years. In 1982 he open his own accounting practice. Pat Brake graduated from Cathedral High School before heading off to Xavier University in Cincinnati. After graduating in 1975, he did auditing and accounting work for local and national accounting firms prior to joining with Jay to create Simmons and Brake in 1986.

Jay and Pat are both involved in professional organizations for accountants. These include the Indiana Association of Public Accountants and the National Society of Public Accountants. Pat has served on the Report Review committee for the Indiana CPA Society. Jay is also a member of the Indiana Network of Estate Planning Professionals.

Simmons & Brake came to Windridge in 1995. They were not happy with the lease rates at their previous location, and loved the view from the top floor. They have occupied suite 404 ever since. They lease about 1600 square feet of space, which includes:
  • Private office for Jay
  • Private office for Pat
  • Conference room
  • Reception area
  • File room
Their conference room is not real big, but it can hold up to six people. This is big enough for most of their meetings. When they need something a little bigger they can always reserve the main conference room. When asked what he liked best about Windridge, Jay cited:
  • Easy access from anywhere in Indianapolis
  • No traffic congestion in the immeddiate area
  • Proximity to the Fall Creek Trail - Jay occasionally rides to work
