RSM UK has appointed Robert Ross as its new Chief Operating Officer (COO), who will move from Scotland to RSM’s London headquarters.

Ross leaves his role as regional managing partner for RSM’s Scotland and Northern Ireland region and head of consulting. He succeeds David Gwilliam, who takes on the role of CEO.

Ross commented: “I’m delighted to be appointed as Chief Operating Officer for RSM. This period is a really exciting one for the firm as it looks to develop and grow its position as the first-choice adviser to middle market leaders in the UK, and globally.”

“RSM has service and sector line capabilities that are among the most varied in the UK; it has the strongest regional network within the middle market, and; most importantly, it has great people. I look forward to working closely with David and the Leadership Team to ensure we deliver the means to provide our clients with the market-leading services they need to grow, and flourish.”

Gwilliam commented on Ross’ appointment: “I am absolutely delighted to appoint Robert as our new COO.”

Having worked closely with Robert since 2003, Gwilliam added: “His credentials speak for themselves.”

“He has successfully led our business in Scotland through challenging market conditions, and ensured its growth. As head of consulting, he has overseen the near quadrupling of its revenue. I have no doubt that Robert will fulfil his new role with commitment and desire.”
