RSM Hires James Alex as National Tax Go To Market Leader



RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – is pleased to announce that James Alex joined the firm as its national tax go to market leader.

In his new role, Alex will be responsible for developing and leading the execution of RSM’s go to market strategy from a tax perspective. He joins RSM from the U.S. Department of the Treasury, where he worked on tax reform implementation alongside Assistant Secretary of the United States for Tax Policy Dave Kautter, who was with RSM prior to his role with the Treasury.

“We are thrilled to have James join the RSM team,” said Tony Urban, national tax consulting leader with RSM US LLP. “His deep experience, particularly the knowledge he gained during his time with the Department of Treasury, and the go-to-market roles he previously held with a Big-Four firm, makes James uniquely qualified to serve our middle market clients.”

“RSM is uniquely positioned as the leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market,” said Alex. “Middle market businesses account for 40 percent of the nation’s GDP and about one-third of the jobs. I can’t think of a better place to be at this point in my career than at a firm focused on such an important part of the economy.”

Alex has a Master/LLM in securities law and financial regulation and a Master/LLM in taxation from Georgetown University Law Center, a Juris Doctor from the University of Virginia School of Law, and a BA from Virginia Tech, where he graduated cum laude. He will be based out of RSM’s Washington, DC office, one of the firm’s 87 offices nationwide.

RSM’s purpose is to deliver the power of being understood to our clients, colleagues and communities through world-class audit, tax and consulting services focused on middle market businesses. The clients we serve are the engine of global commerce and economic growth, and we are focused on developing leading professionals and services to meet their evolving needs in today’s ever-changing business environment.
