Promotion Watch ’22: RSM US Adds 88 New Partners and Principals

The holiday smells of pine and evergreen have been replaced with the smells of new partners and principals at RSM US offices across the country, as its latest class of rainmakers was released into the wild on Jan. 1. The class of 2022 has slightly more members than the class of 2021.

This is also the last new partner and principal class under the reign of Joe Adams, who is retiring as RSM US managing partner and CEO on Aug. 31. He will be succeeded by Brian Becker, the firm’s national consulting leader. Joe said this about the latest group of do-gooders:

“We’re excited to welcome a new class of talented leaders to the RSM partnership. This not only marks a momentous milestone in each of these individuals’ careers, but also signifies that we are dedicated to the success of our firm and to shaping the future of the middle market. We’re confident these leaders are well positioned to drive our strategy and bring diverse perspectives and innovative ideas to our clients, colleagues and communities. We’re appreciative of the contributions these individuals have already made to the firm, and we look forward to the positive impact they will have as they move into this next phase of their careers.”

Let’s take a look at this group of new partners and principals at RSM by the numbers:

  • 36: The number of new partners and principals in tax, the most of any service line, followed by 29 in consulting, 21 in audit, and two in ICS.
  • 32: The number of new partners and principals who are women, or 36% of the class.
  • 22: The number of new partners and principals who work in the Northeast region, the most of any region, followed by 20 in the Southeast region, 16 in the Central region, and 15 in the Great Lakes region.

Here are the 56 men and 32 women who comprise the class of 2022 at RSM:
