RSM International has appointed its first full-time regional director in Latin America.
Robert Burdett, previously the head of RSM McGladrey’s international office in Chicago, will work across Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Peru and Venezuela, focusing on developing international business growth and RSM services in the region.
Burdett has more than 15 years of experience in public accounting and has held several high-profile leadership roles in the industry.
Burdett sees ‘untapped potential’ in the region and plans to make RSM a stronger mid-tier network by building member firms in every commercially important market.
“Latin America is a very important region for us and we are seeing growth opportunities in areas such as transaction support and specialised risk management work,” RSM International chief executive Jean Stephens said.
