McGladrey’s Former CEO to Run Middle-Market Initiative

Dave Scudder, the former MP and CEO of Chicago-based McGladrey (FY13 net revenue of $1.36 billion), will return to the firm to lead a new initiative to attract middle market clients, those in the $10 to $75 million revenue range. He will lead a program to advise middle-market companies on how they can use “technology, tools and processes” to become more efficient and add value, and more jobs, to their businesses. Scudder resigned in 2011 after McGladrey resolved a legal dispute with H&R Block.

The new MP, Joe Adams, is now welcoming Scudder back to the firm. “Dave is the right person for this role. His knowledge of, experience with and passion for emerging middle market companies, combined with his experience and record of success in serving McGladrey clients, are unmatched. We are thrilled to welcome Dave back in such an important role for our clients and potential clients.”
