NEWS RELEASE

Toronto,

RSM Canada (“RSM”) – the leading global provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – is pleased to announce Danny Ladouceur as the  regional leader for the newly-launched Life Sciences industry practice group.

With the world’s second-highest concentration of bio-tech companies and tenth largest market for pharmaceutical sales, Canada’s infrastructure, talent and ready access to key markets helps draw the world’s largest life sciences companies to the country. This foundation has quickly turned Canada into a breeding ground for innovation for lifesaving treatment protocols, pharmaceutical drug therapies and medical devices, among other medical R&D.

A partner with the firm, Danny has led RSM Canada’s tax credits and incentives practice since early 2019. He has extensive experience at the senior executive level in corporate finance, strategic planning, and advisory services in SR&ED and government grants, including roles as vice president of finance and IT at Signature Vacations, and vice president and chief financial officer at FCI Broadband, a Rogers Communications company.

“We are delighted to have Danny bring his strong leadership portfolio to this exciting new venture for RSM Canada,” said Rhonda Klosler, chief operating officer and Toronto office market leader. “The Canadian life sciences sector is more important than ever to Canada's innovation economy, and I’m confident that Danny’s strategic focus and track record of driving business growth will be an anchor for the success of this timely industry offering.”

In today’s fast-paced marketplace and complicated regulatory environment, operating in the life sciences industry can bring a variety of challenges. From the development stage to becoming a commercial organization and capitalizing on tax-efficient strategies, RSM Canada’s life sciences professionals will help guide clients with full service offerings, ranging from outsource services, digital transformation, ERP implementation support, IPO and capital market readiness as well as credits & incentives.
