McGladrey Launches Strategy to Serve Emerging Middle Market Companies
Former McGladrey Managing Partner Dave Scudder will lead initiative to enhance client efficiencies
McGladrey LLP, the nation's leading provider of assurance, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market, recently launched a strategy to serve emerging middle market companies. Former Managing Partner Dave Scudder will lead the innovative initiative, which will use technology, tools and processes specifically designed to help companies in this unique market succeed.
"McGladrey has a deep understanding of the middle market, and realizes that emerging middle market companies – generally those in the $10 to $50 million revenue range – represent a unique and growing segment," said Joe Adams, managing partner and CEO with McGladrey. "Dave is the right person for this role. His knowledge of, experience with and passion for emerging middle market companies, combined with his experience and record of success in serving McGladrey clients, are unmatched. We are thrilled to welcome Dave back in such an important role for our clients and potential clients."
"McGladrey is distinctively positioned to serve emerging middle market clients, given the firm’s history of focusing on the middle market, the large number of emerging middle market companies we serve and our geographic presence in 75 cities across the country where these companies reside," said Dave Scudder, national leader of emerging business strategies. "I am excited about returning to McGladrey and combining my skills and experience with the firm’s talented team to provide new and innovative solutions to help emerging middle market companies succeed."
Scudder has more than 30 years of experience serving the middle market, 28 of which were with McGladrey. For the past year-and-a-half, he has worked with a firm focused on recruiting executives to fill senior-level vacancies at emerging middle market companies – positions which are being vacated in increasingly high numbers as Baby Boomers become eligible for retirement. Scudder holds a B.A. in business from Monmouth College and an MBA in finance from DePaul University. He is also a graduate of the University of Chicago’s Business Advisor Program, an executive MBA-level program designed for McGladrey.
McGladrey LLP is the leading U.S. provider of assurance, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market, with more than 6,700 people in 75 cities nationwide. McGladrey is a licensed CPA firm and serves clients around the world through RSM International, a global network of independent assurance, tax and consulting firms.
