RSM McGladrey Taps Jeffry Seidel To Lead The Firm’s N.Y. Tax Practice


Jeffry Seidel has joined Minneapolis-based RSM McGladrey (FY08 net revenue of $1.4 billion) as managing director to lead the firm’s New York tax practice.


Prior to joining McGladrey, Seidel held several positions with Big Four, Deloitte & Touche. After becoming a partner at Deloitte in 1988, Seidel went on to serve as deputy regional MP for Deloitte’s northeast tax practice.


Seidel was also the PIC of both the New York City tax practice and Deloitte’s Tax Management Advisory Services business.


After more than 40 years, the former leader of McGladrey’s N.Y. tax practice, Jerry Lerman, will transition his leadership responsibilities to Seidel in the coming months and continue to work directly serving clients.


Nearly 800 employees work in the New York office, including 90 partners / managing directors.
