Steve Tait to step down as RSM McGladrey boss

RSM McGladrey president will step down at the end of April after six years at the US firm, 'to pursue other avenues'

Steve Tait, president RSM McGladrey is to step down as president of the firm
later this year.

Tait has enjoyed a largely successful tenure at the helm of the firm, but the
failed
merger attempt with UK firm RSM Robson Rhodes
was one blemish on his record.

‘It has been an honour to lead RSM McGladrey and a privilege to be part of
this great organization,’ said Tait
in
a statement
.

‘From a personal perspective, however, I believe that this is a good time for
me to pursue other avenues and to have someone else lead McGladrey on the next
phase of its successful journey.’

During Tait’s tenure, RSM McGladrey has more than doubled in size, has
improved margins and has enhanced its brand awareness in the marketplace, the
company said.

‘Steve has made significant contributions to the success of RSM McGladrey
since he joined the company in 2003,’ said Russ Smyth, president and CEO of the
firm’s parent company H&R Block.

Smyth added that H&R Block was ‘committed to finding an outstanding
leader to fill this critical business position.’
