For immediate release
October 6, 2010 – Calgary/Montreal – MNP LLP -- one of Canada’s largest chartered accountancy and business advisory firms and Montreal-based accounting firm WSBG LLP – (formerly Wasserman Stotland Bratt Grossbaum) -- announced today that they will be merging, effective January 1, 2011.
“We are truly excited about this merger as it marks a milestone achievement as our first full service office in Quebec, and specifically the Montreal market,” says Daryl Ritchie, CEO, MNP. “One of MNP’s philosophies is to capitalize on growth opportunities by coming together with like-minded firms. We are proud to join forces with a local, well-established and highly respected firm that is passionate about what they do and committed to providing outstanding value to their clients.”
MNP is ranked as the seventh largest chartered accounting and consulting firm in Canada and employs almost 3,000 people from Vancouver Island to Montreal. Since 1945, MNP has been delivering a full range of services including accounting, audit, consulting and tax. In 2010, MNP was recognized by the Globe and Mail’s Report on Business magazine as one of the 50 Best Employers in Canada for the second consecutive year.
“We are very excited about joining MNP. Through this merger, our clients will benefit from the additional knowledge, resources and experience in numerous industry and speciality areas,” said Louis Grossbaum, Managing Partner, WSBG. “As part of one of Canada’s largest accounting and consulting firms, we can continue to deliver value-added services to our clients by drawing on MNP’s expertise in many disciplines.”
Nathan Bratt, Senior Tax Partner, WSBG, said in today’s business environment, it’s more important than ever to look at new ways to help our clients achieve their goals. “This merger is a perfect example of how two firms can come together to provide more resources and services to give our clients the edge they need to stay competitive and overcome current business challenges.”
“MNP is national in scope and local in its focus, serving clients from more than 50 locations,” added Imre Weinberger, Partner, WSBG. “Aligning ourselves with a national firm that is a strong player in the accounting and consulting industry will give us access to more resources and a network of specialists across the country.”
Established in 1964, WSBG has grown to become a highly successful mid-sized accounting firm. WSBG will remain in their current location and Ritchie expects the transition will be seamless as both parties share the same values, culture and commitment to quality services.
