Whoa, the newest crop of partners and principals might be the largest ever at R to the S to the M. The good news was shared via Twitter on Oct. 1. AND THERE ARE FUN FACTS!

Since Going Concern has been around, the largest partner class at RSM/Mickey G’s was 68 last year, followed by 59 in 2016 (RSM) and 56 in 2015 (McGladrey).

  • 21: The number of new partners and principals who are women, or 26% of the class.
  • 8: The number of new partners and principals who are based in Boston, the most of any location, followed by Chicago with seven and San Diego with five.
