CHICAGO, IL – McGladrey LLP, the largest U.S. provider of assurance, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market, recently named Roger Hendren as the firm's new Chairman of the Board, replacing Jerry Bourassa whose term expired Nov. 30, 2012. Additional new board members include Ed Bartak, Phyllis Deiso and Hussain Hasan who were each elected to a four-year term by McGladrey partners.

"It's hard to believe that it was just one year ago that McGladrey & Pullen completed the purchase of RSM McGladrey, reuniting McGladrey as a single, partner-owned firm focused on guiding middle market clients through their business opportunities and challenges," said Joe Adams, managing partner and CEO of McGladrey. "We appreciate the guidance that Jerry and other outgoing board members have provided for our firm, and we look forward to Roger's leadership, and to having Ed, Phyllis and Hussain join the board."

"Serving as the Chairman of McGladrey's Board of Directors has been a truly gratifying and rewarding experience," said Bourassa. "I am confident that the management team and board have what it takes to lead McGladrey through the next exciting chapter of its history."

Hendren is a managing partner in McGladrey's Dallas, Texas office. He has more than 35 years of experience in the manufacturing, retail distribution and technology industries, with a focus on audits of financial statements, strategic planning, mergers and acquisitions, selling businesses and consulting on accounting and finance matters. He holds a B.S. in accounting from Northwest Missouri State University, and is a member of the American, Texas and North Carolina institutes of Certified Public Accountants; the Chief Executive Roundtable and the Association for Corporate Growth.

"Being named as Chairman of the Board for McGladrey is an honor – one that provides me with an excellent opportunity to contribute to the success of the firm and our clients in an important leadership position," said Hendren. "I look forward to working with the other board members to guide McGladrey in its ongoing strategy to be the first-choice advisor to the middle market."

Bartak is a tax partner and construction and real estate leader based in McGladrey's Kansas City office, Deiso is an assurance partner and national SEC practice leader in Ft. Lauderdale and Hasan is a consulting principal and risk advisory services leader for the Great Lakes area, based in Schaumburg, IL. Like Hendren, their board appointments are effective Dec. 1, 2012.
