Promotion Watch ’23: 109 Folks at RSM US Will Be Getting New Business Cards

Jan. 1 was a big day for 109 overachievers at RSM US as their long journeys in public accounting finally culminated in being promoted to partner or principal.

The class of 2023 has the most members by far in recent years, topping the 88 new partners and principals in the class of 2022, followed by classes of 84, 80, and 68.

The person who will be ordering these 79 men and 30 women around said this about the class of 2023: “I am pleased to congratulate our new partners and principals on this exciting next step in their careers,” said Brian Becker, managing partner and CEO of RSM US. “They have already distinguished themselves as first-choice advisors to our clients and teams, and I am confident they will help lead us into the future as we become a digital firm providing assurance, tax and consulting services. I am so proud of all they have already achieved and look forward to supporting their future growth and development.”

Here’s a closer look at the RSM class of 2023 by the numbers:

  • 44: The number of new partners and principals in consulting, the most of any service line, followed by 33 in audit and 32 in tax.
  • 30: The number of new partners and principals who are women, or 27.5% of the class.
  • 27: The number of new partners and principals who work in the Northeast region, the most of any region, followed by 24 in the Great Lakes region, 20 in the Central region, and 19 in the Southeast region.
