RSM McGladrey Named 2010 VAR Star

Recognized for performance and leadership among providers of mid-market financial software


CHARLOTTE, NC – RSM McGladrey, a leading professional services firm providing tax and consulting services under the McGladrey brand, was recently named a member of the 2010 VAR Stars by Bob Scott’s Insights, a publication of the Progressive Media Group that covers the mid-market financial software community. The publication defines VAR Stars as software resellers whose core business is accounting software. VAR Stars are selected based on factors such as growth, industry leadership and innovation.

While revenue is not a factor in the selection process, RSM McGladrey had the highest sales of the 100 companies listed, according to estimates by The Progressive Accountant.

“We are pleased to be named a VAR Star for the second year in a row,” said Brian Becker, national leader of technology services for RSM McGladrey. “As a leading provider of assurance, tax and consulting services to mid-market companies, this recognition confirms that we truly understand our clients’ needs and are adept at providing the best possible technology solutions to help them succeed.”

When asked what they have done to respond to the economic conditions, diversifying product lines, holding onto talent, maintaining or increasing marketing budgets, and performing mergers and acquisitions were among the responses from this year’s VAR Star candidates, according to Executive Editor Bob Scott.

This is the second year the VAR Star Award has been presented by Bob Scott’s Insights. Scott has been involved in the awarding of previous industry honors, including Accounting Technology’s Technology Pacesetter and VAR 100 List.
