MNP memorializes Founding Partner, Don Penny

MNP is pleased to announce a new Collaboration Zone at Assiniboine Community College in honour of late founding partner, Don Penny. As an integral part of the institution’s Prairie Innovation Centre, the space will bring students, business leaders, legislators, and academics together to share ideas, brainstorm solutions, and apply their knowledge in new and unexpected ways.

This investment in Manitoba’s entrepreneurial community reflects both Don’s visionary legacy and his multidisciplinary approach to business. He always saw a future for MNP — and indeed all professional services firms — that extended far beyond accounting, audit, and bookkeeping. The firm’s nationwide growth, scope of services, and in-depth industry insight owe much to the groundwork Don laid four decades ago.

Don passed away in 2019 and was one of the founding partners of Meyers Norris Penny, now known as MNP. The firm is grateful to Assiniboine College for creating a space that honours and memorializes his contributions — and continues his passion of giving back to his profession and the community.

Don was a lifelong Manitoban who was fiercely loyal to his hometown of Brandon. The MNP Don Penny Collaboration Zone celebrates his enterprising spirit and gives thanks to the community where both his and the firm’s roots run deepest.

He would have loved to be part of the conversations that will take place in the Centre, and there’s no doubt his spirit will continue through the innovative and entrepreneurial ventures that will result.
