RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – is pleased to announce that Frank Le Bihan has been named global growth leader for RSM US LLP.
In his new role, Le Bihan will lead growth strategies that maximize the firm’s U.S. and overseas strengths and resources to further advance RSM’s global brand. He will also continue to lead RSM US LLP's foreign desk strategy, currently covering eight countries (UK, China, France, Ireland, Mexico, Germany, Netherlands and India).
Le Bihan will work closely with RSM professionals around the world to drive the firm’s global growth strategy in three key areas: ensuring that internationally active clients experience “the power of being understood” globally, driving growth in the North America market and expanding relationships with foreign direct investors.
“The multitude of business, regulatory, economic and geopolitical issues that come with international expansion are constantly evolving,” said Bill Gorman, chief operating officer with RSM US LLP. “Frank’s background and expertise will serve as a tremendous asset as we continue to identify and develop opportunities to work with our teams around the world to deliver the power of being understood.”
“As our clients are increasingly active in the global economy, Frank will be invaluable as they look to us to help them navigate and prepare for these challenges and new opportunities,” added Tom Ferreira, Northeast regional managing partner for RSM US LLP. “Frank will provide leadership and coordination of resources to expand services to our internationally active clients and deliver a consistent RSM client experience across the U.S., Canada, Mexico and our other major trading partners in the world.”
A native of France, Le Bihan has more than 20 years of experience working with U.S., Canadian and European companies on international strategic planning, cross-border expansion, and global compliance and financial reporting. He is a member of SAE International, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and sits on the steering committee of the AICPA's Global Manufacturing Conference.
“I’m incredibly honored to lead growth strategies for the firm,” said Le Bihan. “This is an exciting time for our talented RSM team as we accelerate our journey to be the first-choice advisor to middle market leaders, globally.”
Le Bihan received his Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Kansas and his DESCAF (French equivalent to an MBA) from the Clermont Graduate School of Business (Sup de Co Clermont) in France. In 2004, he completed the two-year RSM Business Advisor Program at the University of Chicago, Graduate School of Business.
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.
