RSM Canada (“RSM”) – the leading global provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – is pleased to announce three personnel updates across three of its four Canada offices. The three offices officially joined forces with RSM on Nov. 1 and the updates mark the promotion of two professionals from the predecessor firms, and the expansion of the team with a new partner.

In RSM’s Calgary office, Tom Flaig has been hired as a partner in the tax practice. With more than 11 years of public practice experience, Flaig provides innovative and tailored tax planning and compliance services to a variety of private businesses. He also works extensively with high net-worth individuals to transition and preserve wealth across generations in a tax-efficient manner and assists private clients and their shareholders to minimize tax in business acquisitions and divestitures. 

In the RSM Red Deer office, Jorge Robinson has been promoted to partner in the audit and accounting practice. Robinson has practiced public accounting for eight years, specializing in providing audit, accounting and advisory services for not-for-profit and charitable organizations as well as for-profit entities in real estate, construction and financial services industries. His past experience includes the planning, supervision, preparation and review of audit and accounting engagements.

In RSM’s Edmonton office, Curtis Dorfman has been promoted to partner in the audit practice. Dorfman has acted as the engagement lead on audits and reviews in a variety of industries including manufacturing, retail and distribution, real estate, financial services, health and not-for-profit. He provides audit, taxation and advisory services to several consolidated entities with significant business operations in the United States.

“Since our Canadian launch almost a year ago, we’ve been overwhelmed by the amount of interest industry professionals have expressed in working for a global firm with strong Canadian roots,” said Harry Blum, managing partner, RSM Canada LLP. “As part of our newest RSM offices, Tom, Jorge and Curtis will positively impact our firm’s collective ability to continue to provide our growing middle market clients with the tax, audit and consulting services they need from Canada’s best talent.”
