STATEMENT FROM RSM CHIEF MARKETING OFFICER ANDY BOSMAN: 

“We are thrilled Team RSM Member Zach Johnson has been selected as the 2023 Ryder Cup Captain and know he will do an excellent job leading Team USA. Like all members of Team RSM, Zach represents the values of respect, integrity, excellence, understanding, teamwork and stewardship – values that mirror our firm’s own business values. RSM is proud and honored to be associated with Zach, and we wish him and Team USA the best in 2023. We look forward to watching the 2023 Ryder Cup, and to teaming up with Zach and the rest of Team RSM at the 13th annual RSM Classic this fall (Nov. 14 – 20) to continue our support of the Boys and Girls Club of Southeast Georgia, Special Olympics and other children- and family-focused national and local charitable organizations.”

RSM US LLP – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – signed Zach Johnson to an endorsement deal in 2006. He became a household name at the 2007 Masters Tournament when he outdueled Tiger Woods on Sunday at Augusta National to capture the green jack and his first major victory. That win served as a launching pad for Johnson to become one of golf’s most recognizable faces. Now a 12-time PGA TOUR winner and a member of four Ryder Cup and four Presidents Cup teams, Johnson has validated his reputation as the standard-bearer of consistency on the PGA TOUR. In 2015, he outlasted the field and weather to win The Open Championship at St. Andrews. The historic victory placed Johnson in rarified air, not only in becoming a multiple-time major champion, but in doing so at the sport’s most iconic venues. Recognized as one of the game’s consummate professionals, Johnson’s accomplishments on the course are matched by his stewardship off the course. In July 2010, Johnson and his wife Kim founded the Zach Johnson Foundation, which benefits children in need in his hometown of Cedar Rapids, IA. Among its numerous programs that benefit Cedar Rapids area schools, the Foundation hosts the Zach Johnson Foundation Classic, an annual charity tournament featuring PGA TOUR players and local celebrities that serves as a hallmark for the Foundation’s mission. In 2020, Johnson was named winner of the Payne Stewart Award, the most prestigious award on the PGA TOUR, for his values of character, charity and sportsmanship.

Additional Team RSM Members include PGA TOUR Professionals Abraham AncerDavis Love III, and Chris Kirk, LPGA players Maria Fassi and Megan Khang, European Tour player Hinrich Arkenau and Ladies European Tour Player Alice Hewson. In addition to sharing RSM’s core values, each member of Team RSM embodies the same characteristics that the firm demonstrates to its middle market clients by being caring, curious, collaborative, courageous and using critical thinking with each challenge they face.

Johnson’s relationship with RSM has deepened over the years as a result of the firm’s involvement with his foundation and their Kids on Course program in the form of the Shot at College program. This program helps to provide critical financial support and ongoing mentorship to help three students each year pursue their passions of going to college.
