RSM’s French firms merge

RSM International has merged its five French firms which will become a full legal entity as of July 2020.

The five firms which have collaborated closely under the RSM brand since 2005 will merge into a single legal entity as part of the network’s strategy to embed its single culture and brand promise.

The merger aims to give RSM France an enhanced geographical presence and to better position the firm to make more significant investments and drive capabilities in innovation, growth and talent acquisition.

RSM France president Jean-Michael said: “RSM France is entering into a new chapter. Moving from separate legal, regional entities towards one single, national entity reflects our strength and growth opportunities.

“Challenged by the ‘Pacte’ law, faced with the deregulation of the accounting profession and in an era of accelerated digitalisation, this merger will enable us to think even more laterally and facilitate greater innovation and agility in our approach.”

RSM International CEO Jean Stephens said: “In a digital era, innovation is fundamental to the continued success of our network internally and when it comes to providing effective client service - particularly across the middle market.

“RSM France is committed to driving change in order to benefit clients. This merger signals an exciting time not just for them but for the network as a whole.

“It is also an important next step in an ongoing strategy of global brand building, and we look forward to supporting RSM France’s ambitious growth plans.”
