RSM appoints European regional leader

Network RSM has appointed Gregor Schmidt as its European regional leader.

Schmidt joined RSM’s German member firm as chief operating officer in 2012 before becoming chief officer of strategy, markets and communications in 2016. Recently, he played a key role in the merger of RSM’s German firms, and the creation of RSM GmbH; a single-practising entity.

In his new role, he will report directly to RSM International CEO Jean Stephens. RSM is present in 41 countries in the region, and he will work alongside RSM’s European Leadership Team and European Regional Council.

Jean Stephens, CEO, RSM International said: “Gregor has been with RSM for many years now and has demonstrated his strong leadership and professional experience. He was part of the international team that helped to shape our global brand as well as leading the integration of RSM GmbH. He also brings his considerable experience of working with Germany’s Mittelstand to the whole of Europe, as we continue to serve the global middle market. We welcome Gregor to the RSM International team and I look forward to seeing our European region grow even stronger in the years to come.”

Schmidt added: “Europe is in an exciting period of change. Brexit will of course disrupt business, but on top of this, there are new complex European regulations on data, a renewed scrutiny of international taxation and the international trade landscape is being transformed. More than ever, European businesses are looking to their advisers to both understand their needs and aspirations and to anticipate and respond to these challenges. I look forward to driving growth for our clients and for RSM during this era.”
