CHICAGO – (September 27, 2022) – The Association of Latino Professionals for America (ALPFA) recently unveiled its 2022 Most Powerful Latinas (MPLs) list at its L’ATTITUDE 2022 Conference, which includes RSM’s Darcy Wilson-Jones, Los Angeles assurance practice leader and member of the Board of Directors of RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market.
In 2017, ALPFA, in collaboration with FORTUNE magazine, released the first ever Most Powerful Latinas list. Now in its sixth year, ALPFA continues to draw attention to the significant contributions, power and influence driving economic, business and social decisions being made every day by Latina leaders, business women and innovators in every sector.
This is the second consecutive year that Wilson-Jones has been named to this prestigious list. After being recognized as a Corporate Trailblazer last year (a category described by ALPFA as: A group running multi-billion-dollar P&Ls, providing guidance and leadership to their own companies and thousands of others through their consulting), Wilson-Jones was once again named a Corporate Trailblazer for 2022. This year, she joins influential Latinas from a number of other respected organizations including General Mills, Microsoft, Nike and Wells Fargo, among others on this prestigious list.
“The MPL list highlights 50 Latinas who are creating systemic change by redefining and positively influencing the power dynamic across the country,” said Damian Rivera, CEO with ALPFA. “These are names we should all know, as their impact is transforming global business, culture and communities.”
“Darcy is a well-respected, thoughtful and knowledgeable leader – among our people and among our clients,” said Sam Mascareno, West market leader with RSM US LLP. “Her collaborative and inclusive approach to leadership is something that each of us should strive to achieve. On behalf of our nearly 14,700 people across the U.S. and Canada, I’d like to congratulate Darcy on this well-earned recognition.”
“I am completely humbled to be recognized alongside such an impressive group of women on this prestigious list,” said Wilson-Jones. “It’s a privilege to work with such amazing clients and colleagues. Getting recognized for doing what I love is a blessing and an honor!”
