RSM Joins Forces with High Water Advisors

Increases Data Analytics and SAP Risk and Controls Capabilities



RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – announced today the signing of an exclusive license agreement with High Water Advisors to offer its data analytics and SAP risk and controls programming, tools and services to RSM’s clients. In conjunction with the license agreement, the firm’s entire five-member management team has also joined RSM.

“The intellectual property developed by High Water Advisors is a great fit for our firm,” said Brian Becker, RSM US LLP national consulting leader. “We expect this agreement to yield significant benefits to RSM by enhancing our ability to serve our middle market clients in data analytics and application controls―areas our middle market surveys have identified as being of strategic importance to clients.”

“We’re very excited about adding this talented team of professionals to our risk advisory services team and making their knowledge and skills available to our clients,” added Rob Kastenschmidt, RSM’s national risk advisory services leader. “We also believe that they will appreciate working at a large organization that maintains the culture of one much smaller.”
“We’re extremely pleased to enter into this agreement and become part of the RSM US team,” said Steve Biskie, High Water Advisors managing director. “Our firms have similar cultures and a strong focus on clients. This agreement will add value for our clients, and we’re excited about the new opportunities that will open up for our employees.”
