To Our Valued Clients and Friends:
We wanted to share some exciting news for Crow Shields Bailey PC.
We have been a member firm of the McGladrey Alliance since fall 2015. This week, McGladrey Alliance announced that it is rebranding to RSM US Alliance, effective September 12, 2016. This follows a similar rebranding initiative by McGladrey LLP, which changed its name to RSM US LLP in October 2015 to globally align the RSM brand.
Membership in the RSM US Alliance allows us to leverage the infrastructure of the country’s fifth largest provider of audit, tax and consulting services, but maintain our local ownership, autonomy and maintenance of valued client relationships. This membership gives Crow Shields Bailey the shared resources of a national practice, while allowing us to remain your locally-owned accounting firm with offices in Mobile, Daphne and Gulf Shores.
Should you have any questions concerning the affiliation name change, please do not hesitate to reach out to any member of our team to discuss. We appreciate your support and look forward to continuing to serve you.

McGladrey Alliance Changes Name to RSM US Alliance
Name change follows fall 2015 rebranding of RSM US LLP, other RSM International member firms
CHICAGO (August 29, 2016) –The McGladrey Alliance announced today that it will be changing its name to the RSM US Alliance, effective September 12, 2016. This change follows the October 26, 2015 launch of the RSM global brand where McGladrey LLP changed its name to RSM US LLP (RSM), uniting with firms from 120 countries around the world under a common brand. This change reflects the relationship RSM has with RSM US Alliance member firms and was designed to align with the RSM global brand.
“The RSM US Alliance is an important part of our vision to be the first-choice advisor to middle market leaders globally,” said RSM US LLP Managing Partner and CEO Joe Adams. “Middle market companies want access to national and international resources while being served by strong teams in their local market. RSM strives to provide the best of both, and the RSM US Alliance helps us do that. Extending the RSM brand to the alliance enables members to further show their connectivity to RSM and our broad range of resources domestically and around the globe.”
The middle market is a critical part of the U.S. economy, accounting for approximately 40 percent of the nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and providing one-third of its jobs. For more than 28 years, the RSM US Alliance has supported RSM’s vision by extending its brand in cities across the U.S. The RSM US Alliance has more than 75 independent member firms in 38 states, the Cayman Islands and Puerto Rico.
“Membership in the RSM US Alliance provides our members with access to the reach and resources of RSM, the leading audit, tax and consulting firm focused on the serving middle market and the fifth-largest firm in the U.S., while allowing them to maintain their independence and entrepreneurial culture,” said Dean Sengstock, RSM US Alliance national leader. “Our members value the collaboration and networking opportunities with RSM and other alliance members in addition to having access to a broad range of technical tools, expertise and practice management resources. We’re thrilled to now offer this membership under the esteemed RSM brand and look forward to continuing to support this important community of RSM promoters.”
