RSM International to Enhance Sponsorship of The McGladrey Classic


CHARLOTTE, NC – The Davis Love Foundation recently announced that RSM International, the sixth largest global network of accounting and consulting firms, will continue to be one of the elite group of partners and sponsors of The McGladrey Classic, a PGA TOUR event to be held Oct. 10-16, 2011, at the Seaside Course on St. Simons Island, Georgia. In particular, the global network is sponsoring the important warm-up event, where amateurs are invited to play alongside golf professionals during the RSM International Pro-Am on Wed., Oct. 12.

RSM International is a natural fit for The McGladrey Classic because of its ties to title sponsor McGladrey. RSM McGladrey, Inc. and McGladrey & Pullen, LLP, the two companies which co-brand under the McGladrey name, are the U.S. members of the RSM International global network.

"RSM member firms worldwide constantly strive to deliver outstanding solutions and results for their clients. Nothing but the best possible client service will do," said Jean Stephens, CEO of RSM International. "This is the core of RSM and our vision and values mirror the attributes of the participants of The McGladrey Classic, who are also in the pursuit of excellence and being at the top of their game. We are pleased to once again complement our U.S. members' title sponsorship of this prestigious event as official sponsors of the RSM International McGladrey Classic Pro-Am, and wish all participants the very best of luck.

Last year's tournament was a great success with more than 20,000 spectators turning out for the inaugural event, and millions tuning into coverage on The Golf Channel. This year's event will include aerial coverage, as well.

RSM International is represented by independent members in 86 countries, bringing together the talents of more than 3,000 partners and more than 32,500 employees in more than 700 offices worldwide.

"The Davis Love Foundation is proud that a prestigious global organization like RSM International has chosen to continue its involvement with The McGladrey Classic," said Davis Love III, tournament host and Team McGladrey Member. "Working together with our partners and sponsors on a world-class PGA TOUR event will enable us to make significant contributions to charities that provide critical services to children and families. We are delighted that RSM International shares our passion for and dedication to this significant cause."
