RSM US Expands Consulting Services Through Junction Solutions Transaction
Combination creates one of the largest U.S. providers of Dynamics AX solutions
RSM US LLP (RSM) - the nation's leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market - announced today the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire substantially all the assets of Junction Solutions, a national technology consulting firm, subject to the terms and conditions of the transaction. The transaction is expected to close on Dec. 1, 2015.
The combination expands RSM’s consulting practice by adding more than 200 talented individuals to the RSM team and adding Junction Solutions’ deep expertise and knowledge in the area of resource planning (ERP) software and solutions for vertical markets. The combined firm will immediately become one of the largest U.S. providers of solutions using Microsoft Dynamics AX solution, an ERP software solution for multi-site, international enterprises.
“Having the talented professionals of Junction Solutions join RSM strengthens the momentum we’re experiencing in the consulting practice and will allow us to offer even more insights and value to existing and future clients,” said Gary Sturisky, national consulting leader for RSM US LLP. “Their knowledge and leadership in Dynamics AX and the broader ERP space serve as a nice complement to our growing technology capabilities. And their knowledge of the food and beverage, life sciences and retail sectors will enable us to bring deeper insights and understanding to our clients across the board.”
RSM and Junction Solutions share a client-centric approach to doing business, with a focus on building enduring, trusted relationships. Both firms offer superior service to clients in the middle market.
“By joining RSM, we are taking the next step in our growth strategy,” said Jeff Grell, Junction Solutions chief executive officer. “We’ve partnered with RSM on major projects in the past, and our entire senior leadership team is excited to take that relationship to the next level. I’m confident joining forces with RSM will add value for our clients and opportunities for our people.”
“Consulting has been an area of rapid growth for RSM during the last several years,” said Joe Adams, managing partner and CEO of RSM US LLP. “We are pleased to expand our ability to provide technology and management consulting solutions to our clients, and we look forward to the knowledge and expertise the Junction Solutions team will bring to our firm. This is another important step toward strengthening our position as the first-choice advisor to middle market leaders—globally.”
“As companies look for new and more effective ways to intelligently run their operations, technology plays a fundamental role in enabling them to gain greater insights, become more responsive and create business value,” said Victor Morales, corporate vice president, Microsoft Dynamics. “The combination of RSM US and Junction Solutions, with their breadth, deep industry expertise and understanding of our flagship ERP solution Dynamics AX, will help our customers transform their businesses and spur new opportunities for growth.”
Junction Solutions’ 200 professionals will also enhance RSM’s presence in key markets, such as the Atlanta, San Francisco, Denver and St. Louis metropolitan areas.
