In his new role, Wilsona member of RSM’s innovation steering committee, will lead the firm’s efforts to identify new opportunities in which its audit practice can continue to meet clients’ needs in the areas of technology automation, data analysis and artificial intelligence.

Wilson has more than 15 years of experience helping businesses innovate, transform and grow. His areas of focus include digital transformation, corporate strategy and knowledge programs. He previously served in director-level positions with two Big Four firms.

A native of the U.K., where he received his PhD from Cambridge University, Wilson currently lives in San Fransisco. He has written and published several thought leadership articles for publications such as Harvard Business Review, the Wall Street Journal and Forbes.

Wilson came to RSM from KPMG in San Francisco, where he was a managing director. Before KPMG, Wilson spent about nine years at Deloitte, including a stint where he lead the development and implementation of Deloitte’s U.S. technology, media, and telecommunications industry research and thought leadership strategy, according to his LinkedIn profile.

Since July, RSM has poached people from three of the Big 4 firms (that we know of). It snagged Wilson away from KPMG, and this summer, it did a little talent shopping at Deloitte and PwC.

So let us know when you’re about to poach someone away from Uncle Ernie, OK RSM? OK.
