RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – and The CEO Forum Group are pleased to announce a new radio show series entitled “The Middle Market Transformative CEO.” The show’s first episode will air on Sunday, June 24.

This new series will focus on transformative middle market CEOs within critical business sectors. The show will be co-hosted by Robert Reiss, Founder and CEO of The CEO Forum Group and co-author of The Transformative CEO, along with RSM Chief Economist Joe Brusuelas, a thought leader on the middle market with more than 20 years of experience in finance and economics.

The show will be a part of The CEO Forum Group’s radio program, “The CEO Show,” which is broadcasted over 25 nationally-syndicated AM radio stations with more than 600,000 weekly listeners. The series will air on the last Sunday of each month, and will be available as a podcast following the live broadcast.

“The middle market is truly the heart of the economy, accounting for more than a third of US employment and making up nearly 40 percent of GDP,” said Brusuelas. “As the influence of this important segment of the economy continues to grow, it becomes increasingly crucial to the country’s growth and stability. This show enables RSM and The CEO Forum Group to share valuable perspectives from transformative business leaders in the middle market, and to provide a real-time pulse on the significant opportunities and challenges impacting the real economy.”

“We are delighted to collaborate with RSM, a prominent leader focused on serving middle market businesses,” said Reiss. “The CEO Show has historically focused on interviewing the largest companies in America.  That said, we recognize that middle market companies are dynamic drivers of the economy and that there are important lessons that both markets can learn from each other.”

The show’s first episode will feature Danny Meyer, Founder and CEO of Union Square Hospitality Group (USHG).


RSM’s purpose is to deliver the power of being understood to our clients, colleagues and communities through world-class audit, tax and consulting services focused on middle market businesses. The clients we serve are the engine of global commerce and economic growth, and we are focused on developing leading professionals and services to meet their evolving needs in today’s ever-changing business environment.
