About Sean

Sean Keating is a partner and the national business and professional services (BPS) tax industry leader for RSM US LLP. He leads the business operating entity group out of the firm’s Stamford, Connecticut, office, and is responsible for the tri-state BPS launch team. Sean joined the firm in 2003. 


Sean has more than 20 years of experience providing tax planning and advice, including Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 740 services, tax compliance solutions, and analysis of state and international tax structures for public and private companies. He works with portfolio companies of private equity firms, primarily partnerships and corporations, to help them accomplish their goals from a tax perspective. 

Sean is passionate about helping clients identify issues common to BPS companies and guiding them as they grow through acquisition, expand into new markets, or prepare for a sale or exit. He leverages his deep network within RSM to bring the full strength of the firm to every engagement. His industry-first experience gives him a broad perspective in identifying trends and leveraging that knowledge to help clients from a tax perspective. His goal is to make the lives of clients easier by bringing the right solutions to navigate their business challenges. 

Throughout his tenure with the firm, Sean received ample mentoring and career advice that allowed him to clearly see his path to partnership. He now helps others by providing advice and encouragement to help them progress in their careers. There is no greater payoff for Sean than watching the professionals he’s helped mentor and advise as they grow within the firm.
