TUESDAY, MAY 10, 2016, CALGARY, AB – MNP LLP, one of Canada’s largest national accounting and business consulting firms, announced today that Holukoff Chiarella Chartered Professional Accountants, a Winnipeg--based accounting firm, will merge with MNP, effective October 1, 2016. While Holukoff Chiarella was looking to expand their specialty services to clients, MNP was looking to add more resources with a well-respected and client-focused firm that shares the same values.
“MNP was looking for like-minded firms to build on our strategic plans for growth in Winnipeg and northern Ontario,” said Andrew Stibbard, Regional Managing Partner. “In addition to not-for-profit and owner-managed business clients, Holukoff Chiarella serves a significant number of First Nation clients—a key client group for our firm. We are very excited to work with all Holukoff Chiarella’s clients to offer them a greater depth of specialty services.”
MNP is one of the largest firms in Canada and employs over 3,500 team members from Victoria to Montreal. In addition to tax and accounting expertise, MNP delivers a diverse range of advisory services, including consulting, enterprise risk, corporate finance, valuation and litigation support, succession planning, estate planning, insolvency and restructuring, investigative and forensic accounting, cross-border taxation and more.
Holukoff Chiarella is a well-established firm of chartered professional accountants based in Winnipeg and has provided accounting services to clients in Winnipeg and area as well Northern Ontario since 1980. The firm works with owner-managers, not-for-profits and First Nations. 65 per cent of their client base consists of First Nations, with the majority of their clients in Northern Ontario. The firm consists of two partners - Ralph Orr, CPA, CA and Kevin Masse, CPA, CA - and an additional 13 professional and support staff.
“We felt it was a time to reflect on where we saw the firm going. As the marketplace evolves and our client needs become more complex, we believe becoming part of a national firm with a local client service philosophy and greater breadth and depth of services and resources will serve our clients well and position us for continued success and growth,” said Ralph Orr, Partner, Holukoff Chiarella. “We truly believe coming together will strengthen and deepen our existing leadership and offer our clients business advice specifically tailored to their business so they can continue to overcome current business and industry challenges.”
MNP credits its strategic mergers and acquisitions, organic growth, value-added services, and corporate culture for catapulting the firm to lead with the highest year-over-year growth rates of any of Canada’s top accounting firms for more than nine years straight.
“To maintain our corporate culture, we have been very strategic about who we invite to join our team,” explained Stibbard. “We carefully guard our corporate culture, and as a result, we have a low client and employee turnover and are attracting some of the brightest professionals in our industry. We are looking forward to joining forces with the Holukoff Chiarella team.”
Kevin Masse, Partner, Holukoff Chiarella added what appealed to him about MNP was not only has the firm been around more than 50 years serving a diverse range of clients but the firm also been recognized as one of the 50 Best Employers in Canada by the AON Hewitt for eight consecutive years. “MNP has an organizational culture and values founded on an unwavering commitment to people; creating a great place to work and do business, where a healthy balance between home and work life are at the core of how business is run. Our team is truly excited to be a part of the MNP family.”
The Holukoff Chiarella team will remain in their current location until sometime after the effective date, at which point they will move into MNP’s Winnipeg location at 2500 - 201 Portage Ave.
