"We customize our services based on the situation to help our clients pinpoint opportunities, mitigate risks—and realize increased operational efficiency after the deal is done."

The middle market continues to be the primary focus for investors, and RSM McGladrey and McGladrey & Pullen, which also operates under the McGladrey brand, have been providing assurance, tax and consulting services to this market for more than 80 years. "With our expertise in privately held, first-time sold companies, we are well positioned to work on middle-market transactions," said Marcotte.

Private equity firms investing in the middle market turn to RSM McGladrey because of this deep expertise and an industry specialization that aligns with many firms' portfolios.

"We approach each of our due diligence assignments with a fresh perspective, combining deep industry, accounting, tax and consulting knowledge to create a customized deliverable," said Don Lipari, national executive director - Private Equity Services for RSM McGladrey.

Being recognized with this award further acknowledges that we are delivering on this approach and contributing to the success of our more than 1,000 private equity and strategic buyer clients."
