Cameron McMillian wins the Donnovan Maginley Making a Difference Award


Our African American and Canadian Excellence (AACE) employee network group (ENG) recently surprised Cameron McMillian, a technical accounting consulting (TAC) manager out of our Chicago headquarters office, with this year's Donnovan Maginley Making a Difference Award during an AACE all-hands call.

Established in memory of Maginley, a partner in RSM's government assurance practice who passed away unexpectedly in November 2018, this award honors his passion for pursuing excellence, focusing on his client and team and being a valued first-choice advisor. It also exemplifies AACE's mission to further RSM's business and diversity and inclusion objectives by actively supporting the recruitment, development and retention of talented Black professionals and other minorities.

Cameron joined RSM in December 2015. He served as the Great Lakes AACE regional leader from fall 2018 to May 2021. In February, he was among the 15 professionals selected for the fourth class of the RSM Industry Eminence Program.   

When asked about what this award means to him, Cameron said that RSM embodies many of his core values, with Inclusion being at the top of that list. "This is what has driven me to help push AACE forward since I started with the firm in 2015. It's the firm's commitment to recruiting and building our diverse talent and to building an equitable environment for that talent. I'm honored to accept this award but it belongs to all of my AACE family as so many of us are responsible for carrying out AACE's mission."

Along with a $5,000 award to pursue his personal and professional excellence, Cameron designated BUILD, Inc. as the charity to receive a $2,500 donation from the RSM US Foundation. BUILD is a nationally respected gang intervention, violence prevention and youth development organization based in Chicago's West Side. It works to save lives and mentor young people who live in the city's most challenged neighborhoods.

Please join us in congratulating Cameron on this recognition!
