Mid-tier firm adopts leadership model

US firm RSM McGladrey has changed its organisational structure and leadership teams in order to enhance the firm’s efficiency and speed to market.

The changes include strengthening the management structure within RSM’s five regions and integrating the firm’s service lines into operation groups.

Two new positions have been created to add to the executive operating team and a series of industry marketing tactics will be merged into the corporate marketing unit.

RSM McGladrey president Steve Tait said: “The new organisational and leadership structure will bring all of RSM McGladrey’s lines of businesses including tax, consulting, wealth management and capital markets, directly under one chief operating officer. This will assist in offering a higher level of field input to key business decisions and enable RSM McGladrey a faster time to market with business initiatives.

“It will ensure a higher level of service to the middle market and will leave us in an even stronger position to leverage all of RSM McGladrey’s expertise and capabilities to successfully impact a client’s business regardless of their location.”

Leadership reshuffle

Chief operating officer Doug Opheim has undertaken additional responsibilities for the business strategy development areas. He will also be responsible for consulting, tax, capital markets and wealth management.

Joe Adams and Jim Kadavy have been appointed as members of the executive leadership team and will also act as regional managing directors. Adams will be responsible for the Great Lakes Region including Northern Illinois, Indiana and Ohio, whilst Kadavy will be responsible for the Great Plains Region including Iowa, Southern Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri, Colorado and Nebraska.

Mark Audino has been promoted to chief marketing officer and is also a member of the firm’s executive leadership team. His responsibilities will include integrating international and industry marketing skills with corporate marketing initiatives.

Tait added: “Our new marketing structure will increase our industry-focused, go-to-market strategies and enable us to better represent our international advantages to our domestic client base.”
