RSM's Industry Eminence Program Announces Class of 2022

CHICAGO – (May 23, 2022) – RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – is pleased to announce the fifth class of the RSM Industry Eminence Program. The new eminence class, which includes two senior analysts from RSM UK, began their participation in the three-year program with an event in New York City this month.

“I am proud to welcome our fifth class of industry senior analysts to RSM’s Industry Eminence Program,” said Joe Adams, managing partner and CEO with RSM US LLP. “This program has transformed RSM’s ability to provide forward-looking industry insights to the clients we serve, and I am excited to welcome 13 talented professionals to our industry eminence team. We look forward to supporting them in their personal and professional growth as they build new skills that will strengthen our position as the first-choice advisor to middle market leaders globally.”

The RSM Industry Eminence Program was created in 2018 and is led by RSM’s Chief Economist Joe Brusuelas and Deputy Chief Economist Kevin Depew. The program positions senior analysts to understand, forecast and communicate economic, business and technology trends shaping the industries RSM serves. These industry senior analysts help the firm advise clients on conditions impacting middle market leaders and produce regular thought leadership for both RSM publications and the media.

“It has been one of my greatest honors at RSM to help lead the incredible group of people who participate in the firm’s Industry Eminence Program,” said Brusuelas. “These senior industry analysts epitomize what it means to be a first-choice advisor. The past few years have presented turbulent economic and societal circumstances for our clients and communities. Our industry senior analysts have navigated these bumpy waters with analytical skills and thoughtfulness, whether it’s explaining impacts on the labor market or discussing supply chain issues. I can’t wait to see what the newest class will achieve as they progress through the program.”

“We welcome the latest class of our Industry Eminence Program,” said Depew. “This highly skilled group joins four previous classes of industry senior analysts who have all achieved tremendous success in analyzing and communicating the top trends impacting their industries. I look forward to working with our 13 newest senior analysts and helping to guide their development journey.”
