Letter From Jerry Martin
DEAR CLIENTS, COLLEAGUES AND FRIENDS,
On behalf of the RSM US LLP Board of Directors, I am pleased to present the RSM US LLP fiscal 2022 annual report. The theme of this year’s report is “Vision 100 … Powered by our culture”—a vision that is designed to take us to our firm’s 100th anniversary in 2026.
It can be challenging to plan for the future in such a rapidly evolving world. The last several years have brought unexpected changes, and it seems like each day we are faced with revolutionary ideas and innovations that bring both opportunity and challenge. While it can feel daunting at times, I am confident because we are facing the future together—with the strength of our RSM colleagues, our clients and our communities.
One significant role of the RSM US LLP Board of Directors is to be good stewards of RSM—understanding changes in the external environment and their impact on our firm, our people and our clients—as we oversee the evolution of our strategy. One of our primary tasks last year was selecting the firm’s next managing partner and CEO. We were fortunate to have a number of highly qualified candidates, and we selected Brian Becker to assume the role on Sept. 1, 2022. We specifically designed a long transition period, and we feel very pleased with how it has gone and excited for Brian to fully step into the role. We are also tremendously grateful to Joe Adams for his ongoing leadership and stewardship.
This transition is critical because it is the first of many as our longtime leaders prepare for retirement and new leaders take the helm. The board is committed to working with Brian, his leadership team and all RSM partners, principals and employees as we look toward the future, thrive in the face of new challenges and opportunities, grow and innovate, and drive an inclusive, vibrant culture.
RSM is resourceful and innovative to help lead change, and we remain steadfast in our vision to be the first-choice advisor to middle market leaders globally. I am confident we will continue our success together to our 100th anniversary in 2026 and beyond.
