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 Jay Schulman, a principal based out of the firm’s Chicago office, has been named national leader of blockchain and cryptocurrency services for RSM US LLP.

In this role, Schulman is responsible for leading RSM’s efforts to help its clients account for the complex regulatory, tax and trade, auditability, risk and compliance implications related to global transactions and exchanges. He has authored numerous related articles, including Beyond Bitcoin, in the April 2018 issue of RSM’s The Real Economy, RSM’s monthly publication designed to help middle market business leaders anticipate and address the unique issues and challenges facing their businesses and the industries in which they operate. Other recent articles include, among others: What investors should understand about data privacy and protection, Commercial real estate prepares for the era of blockchain and Understanding cryptocurrency risks and opportunities.    

“At RSM, we understand that the pace of change in today’s increasingly global business environment creates unique challenges and opportunities for business leaders, particularly those in the middle market,” said Jeff Johannesen, chief strategy & innovation officer with RSM US LLP. “While large business leaders typically have the resources to anticipate and address evolving needs, middle market businesses often need the support of a trusted advisor, and that’s particularly true when it comes to major technological advances. Blockchain is a game-changer for our middle market clients. Jay is doing a phenomenal job of leading our efforts to help these middle market business leaders take advantage of this cutting edge technology.”

“Blockchain is now a reality,” said Schulman. “At RSM, we have a unique understanding of how this and other emerging technologies and evolving regulations will impact the middle market. I’m excited to lead RSM’s efforts in this arena, as we continue to strive to be the first choice advisor to middle market business leaders, regardless of where in the world they operate.”

Schulman graduated from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with a BS in Journalism.


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.
