US firm McGladrey & Pullen has acquired RSM McGladrey from H&R Block, including its employees, assets and infrastructure.
The combined entity will operate as a partner-owned firm under the name McGladrey.
Since 1999, McGladrey & Pullen and RSM McGladrey have operated under an alternative practice structure in which McGladrey & Pullen provided audit services and RSM McGladrey provided other accounting, tax and consulting services.
McGladrey is the largest US firm outside the Big Four with 7,000 employees in more than 80 offices.
Joe Adams has been named managing partner and chief executive and Mike Kirley is the chief operating officer.
“As a reunited firm, we can effectively and efficiently provide our clients with seamless access to world-class resources to drive their success,” Adams said.
Other national leaders include chief financial officer Doug Opheim, assurance national leader Jim Morton, tax national leader Jeff Johannesen and business consulting national leader Gary Sturisky.
Five regional leaders, Bill Gorman, Tom Ferreira, David Shane, Kevin Prien and Don Natenstedt, have also been named.
In the past 18 months, McGladrey opened a national tax office in Washington, DC, realigned to its business consulting services.
