McGladrey & Pullen Expands Into Five Major Markets
Through the acquisition of several firms across the United States, RSM McGladrey, Inc. and McGladrey & Pullen, LLP, has expanded its accounting and consulting practice into five new major markets, including Baltimore, Kansas City, Dallas, Philadelphia and Boston.
The acquisitions also expand the firm's network in New York and Chicago, and with the other five major cities, adds 850 new employees, 12 offices and more than $90 million in annual revenues.
McGladrey became a subsidiary of Kansas City-based H&R Block in 1999, and as a way to integrate the accounting subsidiaries together, actually acquired six of the seven new firms from its parent.
RSM International is the eighth largest accounting and consulting firm in the world.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
