On 18 June, leading audit, tax and consulting firm RSM appointed Tim Cullimore as a partner to strengthen its national Technology & Management Consulting (TMC) service line. The appointment reflects the firms continued commitment to invest in its team to drive further growth.
Tim will lead RSM’s NetSuite alliance team – the largest provider of NetSuite services not just in the UK, but across Europe. Tim will draw on his extensive experience in delivering technology enabled business transformation programmes during his 17 years at Deloitte where he led the firm’s national NetSuite & Emerging Technologies team.
Chris Knowles, partner and national head of Technology & Management Consulting at RSM, comments: ‘Tim’s appointment is the next significant step for us in our bid to extend our national capability, and strengthen our ability to help more businesses across the country to apply digital technology in a way that supports their growth. Tim’s experience of leading IT-driven business change means he is perfectly placed to lead the expansion of our leading NetSuite service offer.
‘Tim brings a wealth of experience of ERP selection and implementation, and the associated challenges involved in building a consulting practice. He is well known to NetSuite and his joining RSM will continue to cement our reputation with them as their leading UK partner. Tim also brings strong experience of large-scale ERP system selection projects, which aligns well with our long-term ambition to modernise and expand these services in line with our RSM US colleagues.’
Tim will work closely with partner Roger Lovis who has overall responsibility for RSM’s ERP services.
Tim Cullimore, partner in Technology & Management Consulting at RSM, comments: ‘I’m delighted to have joined the team at RSM, and at such an exciting time. I recognise the ambition the team has to grow quickly. I very much look forward to leading the NetSuite alliance team in its bid to secure further market share, and expand and strengthen its service to clients throughout the UK and overseas.’
RSM’s latest senior appointment comes off the back of a series of strategic plays that are enabling the rapid growth of RSM’s TMC team.
RSM’s recent acquisition of 81-strong Crewe-based NetSuite specialist FHL propelled RSM UK to become the largest provider of its kind in Europe; RSM US has signed an agreement to acquire Explore Consulting, a leading regional US NetSuite Solution Provider, and; RSM UK moved to establish a permanent team presence in Manchester to broaden its geographical scope at the start of this year.
Tim’s appointment also follows RSM UK’s 'Regional Alliance Partner of the Year – EMEA' award in April which recognized, for the third year running, the teams track record of excellence in delivering value to clients through the deployment of NetSuite’s integrated cloud business system platform.
The Financial Times also named RSM UK as one of the UK’s leading management consultants for IT implementation services in its annual Statista Report 2018.
RSM’s national Technology and Management Consulting team consists of more than 100 people providing clients with advice on IT and Digital strategy, system selection and implementation, as well as complementary skills in finance consulting and business change. RSM is a strategic partner of Oracle-NetSuite and Microsoft Dynamics.
