RSM Canada may seem like a new addition to the business community landscape in Calgary. But the global firm that provides accounting, auditing and other consulting services for mid-sized businesses has very deep roots in the city.
“We’ve been part of Calgary since 1922,” says David Hird, office managing partner of the Calgary office of RSM Canada.
“The partners of our predecessor firm in Calgary joined RSM in late 2018. RSM is the leading provider of assurance, tax and consulting services to the middle market globally.”
Hird says RSM was an ideal fit for the Calgary market.
“We get to continue to serve the clients that we have served for many years, but now we have the ability to access more resources and enhanced industry and technological expertise. We are also excited to bring those resources and enhanced industry and technological expertise to the Calgary marketplace for those that are not yet our clients.”
Since joining RSM, the firm has added more than 20 new team members and is continuing to grow and expand the depth and breadth of its service offerings. While RSM Canada brings to bear access to enhanced expertise and services, it is delivered by the local teams.
That’s embodied in what the firm refers to as its five Cs.
“Those being ‘caring, curious, courageous, collaborative and critical thinkers,’” Hird says.
“All of those things allow us to use the power of being understood, to become the first-choice advisers for our middle-market clients.”
