Before that, he was at Satsuma Solutions for twenty years, a company he founded in 1999 and sold to Decision Inc in the summer of 2018. Satsuma Solutions specialised in web development, systems integration, mobility and business intelligence solutions for medium to large organisations. 

“Matthew has significant experience designing and developing leading technology solutions for companies. His track record, which includes an in depth understanding of the requirements of both IT and the business, will be well-received by businesses that need help with their data challenges and making sense of the current state of data chaos,” said Smith. 

Having joined the firm on the 1st of October, Cunneen said that he looks back at a “very warm welcome by all RSM’ers I have met so far”. 

“Being the IT person surrounded by an organisation full of smart accountants, auditors, tax experts, risk experts, business advisors, corporate finance experts and the like is quite the challenge, but it is one that I am very excited about. I am looking forward to working with the team at RSM to deliver data & analytics to their clients.” 

According to a recent report from RSM, small and mid-sized companies can harness the power of analytics to become more competitive, both in their front-office as well as back-office.
