RSM Canada has hired Tu Nguyen, PhD, as an economist and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) director. She will be based in the firm’s Toronto headquarters.

Nguyen will work with RSM’s global economics team to provide regular thought leadership and analysis on the Canadian and global economy. She will also work with the ESG group to develop quantitative models and a standardized process to lay the foundation for client services in the Canadian and global markets.

Nguyen most recently spent a year as a research economist at Dalhousie University, where she led research projects on the economic impact of Covid-19 on the fishing industry.

She also holds a master’s degree in economics from The University of Akron and a bachelor’s degree in economics from Baruch College.RSM Canada hires economist Tu Nguyen in Toronto office"Tu's deep capabilities in econometrics and economic modelling, combined with her strong business background and expertise in ESG will allow us to further expand our network and provide progressive services to our clients," said Harry Blum, RSM Canada's national managing partner.
