About Anthony

Anthony Donoghue is an audit partner and the national food and beverage leader for RSM Canada LLP, providing integrated audit, tax and consulting advice to fast-growing, complex private companies in Canada and abroad. He joined a predecessor firm of RSM in 2005 and has been an RSM partner since 2017.


Experience

Anthony works primarily with businesses backed by private equity, with a focus on middle market investors actively evaluating and acquiring complementary businesses or planning a targeted exit from their business. He draws on his industry experience in manufacturing, consumer goods, and software and technology to lead RSM Canada’s food and beverage industry. A strong collaborator with clients and across other service lines, Anthony takes an enterprise view of each engagement and helps deliver the full breadth of firm services and value to his clients.

Throughout his tenure, Anthony has seen companies grow through every stage of the life cycle. He is passionate about supporting clients through points of significant transformation to meet their complex, evolving needs. He is known for asking the right questions and leveraging his vast network of firm professionals to deliver the highest level of client service.

Anthony has extensive experience working with accounting frameworks, including U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and Canadian accounting standards for private enterprises (ASPE), as well as with revenue recognition and purchase price accounting. He gained international experience during an exchange program serving an RSM affiliate in Australia.

Anthony’s commitment to team building is evident in the output of his high-performing group. He works diligently to create opportunities for firm professionals to pursue a path centered around their ideal role and interests in order to drive value for clients. He also serves as a mentor to several rising stars within RSM.

As the father of two girls, Anthony is RSM Canada’s partner champion for the firm’s Family First employee network group and part of the firm’s Father Factor cohort, a group that meets to discuss the experience of being a working dad in professional services. He is Toronto’s co-leader of Birdies Fore Love, RSM’s platform for charitable giving, and a participant in the firm’s Courageous Conversations around culture, diversity and inclusion.

An outdoor enthusiast, Anthony can be found hiking, biking or skiing with his family when he’s not assisting food and beverage clients at RSM.
