RSM US LLP (RSM) is the leading U.S. provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market. The firm has more than 9,000 employees in 90 cities nationwide. Formerly known as McGladrey LLP, the firm changed its name in October 2015, uniting with other member firms in the RSM International network that had also rebranded as RSM. RSM US LLP's membership in RSM International, a network of independent accounting and consulting firms in more than 120 countries with more than 43,000 people, greatly enhances its international endeavors.

As for the McGladrey name, it 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.
