RSM International, branded RSM, is a multi-national network of accounting firms, forming the fifth largest accountancy professional services network in the world. The member firms of RSM are independent accounting and advisory firms each of which practices in its own right, and is unified as part of the network. The network is not a separate legal entity of any description in any jurisdiction, and does not provide services.

The largest member firms are RSM US, formerly known as McGladrey, and RSM UK, formerly Baker Tilly LLP. Together, the North American, European, and Asia Pacific regions accounted for $4.87 billion of revenues in 2016. On October 26, 2015, all member firms of the network were rebranded as RSM.

History[edit]

RSM International has been in continuous existence since 1964, when it began as a small network that was originally called DRM. In 1993, the organisation restructured, and changed its name to RSM International.

Historically, RSM was derived from the initials of three of the original founding member firms of the organization:

  • Robson Rhodes (United Kingdom)
  • Salustro Reydel (France)
  • McGladrey (United States)

Founding member Robson Rhodes was acquired by Grant Thornton, and absorbed within their network,[1] while Salustro Reydel merged with KPMG.[2] McGladrey, the RSM US member firm, is still part of the network today.

In January 2006, Ms. Jean Stephens became the first female chief executive officer, of a Top 10 international accounting network.
