2016 Inductees to the RSM Hall of Fame
RSM celebrates 90 years in its original hometown
In 2016, RSM's past and present came together to celebrate the firm's 90th anniversary and the inaugural Hall of Fame induction. Attendees traveled from across the country to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where the firm originated in 1926.
The evening kicked off with a welcome reception where attendees could reconnect with former and current coworkers and take a walk down memory lane as they scrolled through the new virtual museum kiosks. The party then moved into the ballroom for dinner and the evening program.
The night was full of emotion and laughter as employees, former managing partners and family members graced the stage to accept their awards. Two consistent messages came across throughout the night: the support the firm provides its people and the pride people have for this firm.
It was an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to bring back some of the leading individuals in our firm's history together under one roof. We want to thank our inductees and partners and principals who attended to celebrate this significant milestone in our firm's history.
