RSM launches RSM Canada Alliance

RSM has launched its RSM Canada Alliance which will allow members to access the network’s global resources while still remaining independent.

The independent member firms will have access to RSM’s resources, including technical resources, marketing and business development, practice management, talent management and career development, dedicated client services, and networking opportunities.

The Alliance was launched with two inaugural firms; DJB, which has offices in Burlington, Grimsby, Hamilton, St. Catharines and Welland, and NVS Chartered Accountants based in Markham.

RSM Canada managing partner Harry Blum said: “The alliance model is a new concept to Canada, but is especially suited for our marketplace. The realities of our geography and our business landscape mean that small businesses are at the heart of our country’s economic engine.

“When these firms join this program, they will be able to stay true to their Canadian roots while enjoying the benefits and resources of a global firm.”

Blum has appointed Terri Ellis to lead the RSM Canada Alliance program. Ellis has 16 years of experience working with audit, tax and consulting firms. In her previous role as growth & market development partner, she acted as a strategic growth advisor to the RSM Canada leadership team.

The RSM Canada Alliance is modelled after the RSM US Alliance programme which has more than 75 members.

The Alliance launched a year to the date since RSM first launched in Canada.
