Joe Brusuelas, chief economist to the middle market

Committed to understanding and decoding the middle market economy

As the influence of the middle market grows, RSM continues to invest in our ability to deliver broader economic context and insights to help middle market leaders succeed. In 2014, Joe Brusuelas joined us as Chief Economist, to provide real-time, middle market-relevant macroeconomic perspectives that help clients anticipate and address the unique issues and challenges facing their businesses and the industries in which they operate. 

Joe and his team launched The Real Economy, our flagship publication for middle market business leaders, and established the RSM US Middle Market Business Index, first of its kind research now developed in partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. 

As Joe shared when he joined the firm, "I've long believed the middle market is the 'real economy', as it accounts for more than a third of our employment base and GDP. I believe we are entering a cycle where mid-sized companies will be increasingly important in driving the success of business in the United States."
