Even as the ongoing pandemic has shifted many companies to remote work, Chicago-based IPA 100 firm RSM US LLP (FY20 net revenue of $2.7 billion) is moving ahead with its buildout of a new office in Hartford, Conn., with plans for a May 2021 opening.
RSM already has about 337 employees in the state across offices in New Haven, Stamford and Farmington, but will close the New Haven location and move those employees to the Hartford office when it opens. The goal is to extend the firm’s customer base in the northern portion of Connecticut and western Massachusetts, gain better access to the Hartford talent pool and provide better amenities and meeting spaces for clients.
“It strategically aligns to our continued growth in the middle market industry,” says RSM partner Susan Martinelli, who will lead the Hartford office. “The location in Hartford really helps to position us to better serve the entire state with our resources.”
