International consultancy RSM has recruited a new Partner to its Technology and Management Consulting operations. Tim Cullimore joins the firm from Big Four firm Deloitte, where he had spent the previous 17 years.

On the back of a series of strategic plays, RSM’s Technology and Management Consulting (TMC) team has been enjoying major growth in recent years. 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, while RSM US has signed an agreement to acquire Explore Consulting, a leading regional US NetSuite Solution Provider, and back in Britain, RSM UK has moved to establish a permanent team presence in Manchester to broaden its geographical scope at the start of this year.

Now, the audit, tax and consulting firm has installed Tim Cullimore as a Partner to strengthen its national TMC service line, in a move which the firm says reflects its continued commitment to invest in its team to drive further growth. Cullimore will now lead RSM’s NetSuite alliance team – the largest provider of NetSuite services not just in the UK, but across Europe.

In order to do so, he will draw on his extensive experience in delivering technology enabled business transformation programmes, which he cultivated during a 17-year stay at Deloitte. After obtaining a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree in Information Systems at the University of Central Lancashire, Cullimore joined the Big Four group in 2001, and went on to lead the firm’s national NetSuite & Emerging Technologies team, holding the position of Director before his exit to RSM in 2018. Cullimore will work closely with partner Roger Lovis who has overall responsibility for RSM’s ERP services.

Commenting on the news, Chris Knowles, Partner and national head of Technology & Management Consulting at RSM, said, “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 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 Cullimore himself added, “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.”
