RSM Congratulates 2022 RSM Hall of Fame Inductees

CHICAGO (June 28, 2022) – RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – recently announced the fifth class of inductees to the RSM Hall of Fame, which honors individuals whose outstanding contributions and stewardship have meaningfully enriched and shaped the firm over its 96-year history.

This year, RSM is proud to honor 10 inductees who embody the firm's values of respect, integrity, teamwork, excellence and stewardship. Their positive contributions to the firm and to the communities where its people live and work across the U.S. and in Canada have created a legacy worth recognizing.

The RSM Hall of Fame was originally established as part of the firm’s 90th anniversary celebration in 2016. New inductees are added every other year and recognized during the firm’s biennial owners’ meetings. This newest group of inductees was formally recognized during RSM’s 2022 owners’ meeting in Las Vegas.  

RSM Hall of Fame inductees are nominated by former and current RSM partners and employees, and an in-house selection committee chooses the finalists.

“We continue our tradition of honoring outstanding employees and partners who exemplify our firm’s vision, values and purpose, both professionally and personally," said Joe Adams, managing partner and CEO with RSM US LLP. "This most recent distinguished group has made a long-lasting positive impact on our firm, our people and our middle market clients. Each played and continues to play a critical role in making RSM the leading firm we are today.”
