Promotion Watch ’19: RSM Adds 80 New Partners and Principals

Whoa, the newest crop of partners and principals might be the largest ever at R to the S to the M. The good news was shared via Twitter on Oct. 1. AND THERE ARE FUN FACTS!

Since Going Concern has been around, the largest partner class at RSM/Mickey G’s was 68 last year, followed by 59 in 2016 (RSM) and 56 in 2015 (McGladrey).

Let’s take a closer look at the class of 2019 by the numbers:

  • 29: The number of new partners and principals in both tax and in audit, the most of any service line, followed by 21 in consulting and one in internal client services.
  • 21: The number of new partners and principals who are women, or 26% of the class.
  • 8: The number of new partners and principals who are based in Boston, the most of any location, followed by Chicago with seven and San Diego with five.
  • 2: The number of new partners and principals who either have the first name or last name of Cash.

Here are the 80 new partners and principals in the RSM class of 2019:
