RSM International, the global audit tax and consulting network focused on the middle market, has appointed Bob Dohrer as Chief Operating Officer (COO) for the network with effect from 1 October, 2020.
Dohrer was part of the Global Executive Office team between 2012 and 2018 where he had overall responsibility for RSM’s audit and other attest services, policies, procedures and guidance, before leaving RSM to take up the role of Chief Auditor at the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). His knowledge of the global audit, tax and consulting marketplace, as well as his deep understanding of the RSM network, make him an ideal candidate for this role.

Jean Stephens Chief Executive Officer of RSM International said:
