CHICAGO, IL — McGladrey & Pullen, LLP, the nation's fifth largest provider of assurance, tax and consulting services under the McGladrey brand, announced today the change of the firm's name to McGladrey LLP. This change follows the acquisition of RSM McGladrey by McGladrey & Pullen last November and further aligns the firm's name with its brand, which was launched in June 2010.

"The purpose of reuniting our firms was to enhance our ability to provide clients with world-class solutions to drive their success," said Joe Adams, managing partner and CEO for McGladrey. "This change represents the last stage in our transition process to a single partner-owned CPA firm. It also more closely ties our firm's name to the strong brand we have been building in the marketplace and underscores our commitment to understanding growing organizations and providing quality, integrated services to help them succeed."

The McGladrey brand is centered on a deep understanding of the issues facing growing organizations – from owner-managed businesses to public companies and national nonprofits – and provides unparalleled experience to help its clients reach their business goals within the public trust framework. In the year ahead, the firm plans to continue its investments in its brand, people development, international services, Washington National Tax Office, consulting services, SEC capabilities and private equity services, to name a few.

"At McGladrey, we are proud to have a long history of serving middle-market companies," Adams continued. "As the business and regulatory environment these organizations operate in becomes more complex, they need an advisor who can help them make confident business decisions. This is what McGladrey does for its clients every day."
