Chicago-based McGladrey (FY15 net revenue of $1.64 billion) has announced that Bill Gorman will succeed Mike Kirley as the firm’s COO effective Sept. 1.

In this role, Gorman will be responsible for overseeing business planning and strategy execution, as well as the firm’s five regions, accounting industry services business and integrated marketing communications team.

“Bill has been a key member of our firm’s leadership team since 2011,” said McGladrey MP and CEO Joe Adams. “He has played a crucial role in the development and execution of our strategy, and I look forward to continuing to work with him to advance our firm and the services we provide to clients in his new role as COO.”

Gorman most recently served as MP of the firm’s Southeast region, responsible for operations, client service and people management from Washington, D.C., to South Florida.

Kirley will continue to be a partner with McGladrey and maintain responsibility for the firm’s international strategy. He will also continue in his role as chairman of the RSM international board of directors.
