McGladrey LLP is one of the largest U.S. providers of assurance,
tax, and consulting services focused on the middle market. The firm
has approximately 8,000 employees in 80 cities nationwide. Its
international endeavors are enhanced by its membership in RSM
International, a network of independent accounting and consulting
firms in more than 110 countries with more than 37,500 people. The
McGladrey name goes back several decades-to 1926 when Ira B.
McGladrey opened an accounting practice in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. In
1984, McGladrey combined forces with A.M. Pullen & Company, a
firm with headquarters in South Carolina and dozens of offices in
the Southeast. The firm was renamed McGladrey & Pullen in 1987.
Just over 10 years later, the firm sold its non-attest assets to
H&R Block. But 12 years after that, in 2011, these assets
(which operated under the name RSM McGladrey Inc.) were repurchased
by McGladrey & Pullen. Also in 2011, Joe Adams was named
managing partner and CEO. A year later, in 2012, the firm changed
its name to McGladrey LLP.
