RSM ‘in it for the long haul’ as it promotes more directors than ever before

21 October 2021
Leading audit, tax and consulting firm RSM has announced 40 new promotions to director, marking the largest ever cohort of new directors. The promotions span several key teams in multiple locations throughout the UK.

Hundreds more have been promoted in RSM’s continued bid to strengthen the growth of the firm from within its own existing ranks. The firm aims to become a first-choice employer of highly skilled people, and a leading adviser to middle market firms globally.

Rob Donaldson, CEO at RSM UK, comments: ‘We’d like to congratulate our newly promoted directors – they have worked extremely hard to reach this stage in their careers and we wish them every success as they each play an integral role in driving RSM’s future growth. Each promotion is a reflection of the hard work, dedication and talent at RSM. I’m delighted for all of them. By some margin, this marks the largest director cohort we have ever promoted.

‘When it comes to developing our talent, we’re in it for the long haul. Beyond our newly promoted directors, hundreds more have progressed their careers here at RSM in recent weeks. We’re committed to investing in and supporting our people to grow. It is very rewarding to see and be part of the journey as our people build their careers. It is a privilege and one of the best parts of my job to call and give people the news they have worked so hard to receive. There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing someone grow in skill, experience and confidence as they progress.’

Whilst RSM’s tax and transaction services teams received the lion’s share of director promotions, Accounting and Business Advisory, Risk Assurance, Outsourcing and Consulting all saw promotions to director level.
