Chicago-based RSM US (FY17 net revenue of $2 billion) announced Rob Kastenschmidt will assume two new key consulting roles within RSM and John Brackett will take on the role of risk advisory services (RAS) national leader.
Kastenschmidt is moving from his position as national leader for RAS to assume responsibility for the continued strategy, design and rollout of best practices, methodology, and delivery for RSM consulting worldwide. He will work closely with the firm’s key leaders across the globe on new strategic concepts and will continue to lead the RSM delivery center.
As RSM continues to expand its consulting practice in Texas, Kastenschmidt will also assist with the execution of the firm’s growth strategy in the state. In this role, he will collaborate with the region’s leaders to drive consulting services in the market.
“Rob will play a pivotal role as we capitalize on this tremendous opportunity to continue to expand our consulting practice, both in the Texas market and globally,” says Brian Becker, national consulting leader. “His breadth and depth of knowledge gained from leading our national risk advisory services practice will be invaluable as we implement and execute these important growth strategies that build on the firm’s consulting strength.”
In Brackett’s new role as national leader for RAS, he will assume the responsibility of driving the overall strategies for the practice.
Brackett brings more than 20 years of experience to the role, including six years as RAS leader in the Southeast. He was also recently appointed to serve as consulting leader for the Southeast region.
“I am confident that John will do an excellent job leading the team, creating opportunities for our employees and guiding our clients on the most critical issues affecting their businesses,” says Becker. “His deep consulting expertise, strong enterprise leadership and client-centric focus will make him an ideal RAS team leader.”
