I am impressed with how RSM colleagues engage in courageous conversations, whether people are sharing challenges or aspirations balanced against their work and their life goals.
RSM has provided me the opportunity to truly take hold of my career and run with it.
TORONTO, ON – (July 20, 2022) – RSM Canada LLP ("RSM") - a leading global provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – has expanded its Canadian presence by securing a physical office in Kitchener that allows the firm to further develop its footprint across southern Ontario and establish a full-service office in the area. The office is located in Catalyst Commons, an industry-led co-working space for entrepreneurial companies.
Officially opened on June 1, this expansion into Waterloo Region and Guelph follows the firm’s acquisition of Business Improvement Group (BIG) and Revenue Services Group (RSG) in December 2021.
“Waterloo Region is among the fastest-growing communities in Canada,” said Harry Blum, national managing partner at RSM Canada. “Nearly half of Ontario’s population lives in the Toronto-Waterloo corridor – representing 21% of the country’s total population – along with 30% of Canada’s university students. This new office is proof of our commitment to bring the RSM talent and client experience to this region. As we have seen through previous expansions, businesses benefit from our industry expertise and our unique client-centric culture.”
Kate Phillips, RSM’s Canadian growth and business development leader, will lead the Kitchener office. Kate is a long-time local resident and well-known in the market with a strong understanding of the region; her expertise and leadership will be instrumental in RSM’s market build-out and growth.
“We are excited to bring the power of RSM’s global network to local middle market businesses,” said Kate. “Our commitment to being first-choice advisors, combined with our expertise in the industries that drive Waterloo Region, will help these world-class companies grow on a global scale.”
RSM Canada is the Canadian member of RSM International, a global network of independent audit, tax and consulting firms with more than 51,000 people in 123 countries.
