Jose Castillo to lead tax quality and risk management practice



RSM Canada, the leading global provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on middle market businesses, is pleased to announce Jose Castillo as its newest tax partner in Toronto, where he will lead the tax quality and risk management (TQRM) practice of the firm.

An industry veteran with 29 years of experience working for multiple Big Four accounting firms, Jose will provide a wide breadth of tax policy and risk management expertise to RSM Canada’s already strong leadership base and team of partners. Most recently, he championed multiple TQRM initiatives as a managing director in Toronto, leading the development of his firm’s global tax manual of risk policies and guidelines, as well as the firm’s tax quality framework.

As the new head of TQRM, Jose will oversee all aspects of the development and execution of RSM Canada’s tax risk framework, assist with ongoing integration activities and monitor industry trends impacting the business’s tax practice.

“Strong leadership and deep expertise are necessities in the increasingly competitive market of financial consultancy services, and Jose checks both of those boxes with what he brings to our team” said Maria Severino, national tax leader, RSM Canada. “We have invested in expanding our tax services to reach more clients across Canada, which makes the leader of our tax quality and risk management practice all the more critical to our day-to-day operations. Jose’s tremendous background ensures that we have yet another seasoned industry professional committed to strengthening our internal infrastructure as we continue to provide our clients with valuable expertise.”

Jose holds a Master in Business Administration degree from Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio, and a diploma in finance and business law (with honours) from the Business School of Graduate Studies – ESAN, Lima, Peru. He also completed post graduate studies in international taxation and has completed the General Management Program as well as additional executive coursework at Harvard Business School in Boston, Massachusetts.
