Industry Eminence Program

Intentional focus accelerates understanding and drives insights

An innovative program, grounded in experience

In September 2018, RSM unveiled its Industry Eminence Program.

Created and led by RSM US LLP Chief Economist Joe Brusuelas and Deputy Chief Economist Kevin Depew, the program, which began in May 2018, positions senior analysts to understand, forecast and communicate economic, business and technology trends shaping the industries RSM serves. In keeping with RSM’s vision to be the first-choice advisor to middle market leaders globally, industry senior analysts help the firm advise clients on conditions impacting middle market leaders.
