Happy Holidays and an Early Present for The McGladrey Classic!

The holidays are in full swing, and one of our favorite “findings” this week was from the LPGA TOUR – postings from a number of TOUR members about their favorite holiday decorations. Our very own Team McGladrey Member Natalie Gulbis is included among those sharing their favs. Check it out.

And speaking of Natalie, earlier this week, she hosted the Natalie Gulbis Golf Classic, benefitting Boys & Girls Clubs of Henderson, NV – a great cause. We admire Natalie’s dedication to giving back during this holiday season, and appreciate the “shout out” she gave to McGladrey through her Twitter post.

Also earlier this week, we were thrilled to learn that The McGladrey Classic earned an award for “Best New Promotional Idea” by the PGA TOUR during the TOUR’s Tournament Advisory Council meeting this month. The McGladrey Classic was singled out for its “Caddie for Love” promotional campaign, which resulted in more than 22,000 fans submitting essays explaining why they should be picked to caddie for tournament host and Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III during the Wednesday Pro-Am. Thanks to everyone who voted, and to the fans to entered the contest – it was a blast! Read more about this cool recognition.

We’ll be taking a break the rest of this month to wrap up things at the office, and to spend some time with family and friends. We hope you’ll check back with us in the New Year, and wish you and yours a joyous holiday season!

'Tis the Season to be Busy for Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson

While December is usually a busy month for everyone, it has been particularly busy for Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson. Last week’s Chevron Challenge was a heart-stopper, with Tiger Woods etching out a one-shot win over Zach. The final hour was up for grabs until Tiger came through in the clutch on the last two holes. Great job, Zach - we’re proud of you!

Earlier this week, Zach launched his new website. The site is chock-full of photos, “Zactoids” and other interesting information about Zach, his team, his partners (including McGladrey), his foundation and The PGA TOUR. You can even send a note directly to Zach from the site. Check it out – you won’t be disappointed!

What’s keeping YOU busy this holiday season? We’d love to hear from you!

What a Great Week!

This week as been full of positive news at McGladrey. First, we kicked off our return from the Thanksgiving holiday with the wonderful news of a three-year extension to The McGladrey Classic, taking the tournament through 2015! We look forward to returning to Sea Island for the event for another four years, and to continuing our partnership with the PGA TOUR and the Davis Love Foundation.

As if that weren’t enough to make for an exciting week, earlier today, we announced the completion of the acquisition of RSM McGladrey by McGladrey & Pullen.

Since 1999, McGladrey & Pullen has operated under an alternative practice structure with RSM McGladrey through which McGladrey & Pullen provided clients with public accounting services, and RSM McGladrey provided non-public accounting services, including tax and consulting services.

This change returns our firm – which will continue to go to market under the McGladrey brand – to a traditional partner-owned CPA firm structure. As a reunited firm, we can effectively and efficiently provide our clients with seamless access to world-class resources to drive their success.

We’re building on a foundation of strength, and we will continue to make significant investments in our brand, as is evidenced, in part by our renewed partnership of The McGladrey Classic. We hope we’ll see you at Sea Island next October!
