Appointments Enhance Firm's Position as a Provider of High Quality Independent
Investment Banking Advisory Services

TORONTO, Feb. 8 /CNW/ - MPA Morrison Park Advisors Inc. is pleased to announce that Robert C. Williams has joined MPA as Chairman, and that William N. Gula has joined MPA as Managing Director. These appointments are effective immediately.

"MPA and its partners are honoured and delighted to have Bob and Bill join the firm in these important roles," said David Santangeli, Managing Director and Co-Founder of MPA. "We look forward to the opportunity to bring their experience, insights and expertise to our clients."

"Bob and Bill share our belief that the Canadian market is short of independent investment banking firms that provide senior level financial advice that is objective and value-added," said Brent Walker, Managing Director and Co-Founder of MPA. "To have executives of their calibre join our firm is very exciting for MPA and its clients."

Bob Williams has acted as a trusted advisor to leaders in business and government in Canada for over 40 years. Originally joining McLeod Young Weir in 1967, Bob progressed through increasingly senior roles and recently retired as Vice Chairman, Equity Capital Markets at Scotia Capital Inc.  Widely respected by colleagues and clients alike, Bob has played key roles in many of the largest, most innovative and complex capital markets transactions in the history of Canadian business. 

Bill Gula is widely regarded as one of Canada's leading M&A advisors, having acted as a trusted advisor to CEOs, boards and board committees in company transforming situations including over $100 billion of M&A transactions in the Canadian marketplace over the past 30 years. Most recently a senior partner at Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg, one of Canada's leading law firms, Bill was called to the Ontario Bar in 1979 and built up a practice as one of Canada's leading practitioners in the fields of mergers and acquisitions, securities law and corporate governance. From 1997 to 2004 Bill was Head of Mergers and Acquisitions at Scotia Capital Inc., where he built and managed this successful division within the larger investment bank.

MPA Morrison Park Advisors Inc. is an independent investment bank providing financial and strategic advisory services to clients requiring specialized investment banking expertise. At MPA we serve some of Canada's largest corporate and government clients as well as many private or earlier stage companies. We focus on assisting clients that are undergoing significant strategic events such as equity or debt capital raising, mergers, acquisitions, divestitures and restructurings. We have also been engaged to provide advice in a number of special situations such as formal valuations, fairness opinions, negotiations, special committees of boards of directors, initial credit ratings, expert testimony, policy development and market analysis. MPA does not provide equity research, sales and trading, asset management or lending services. We believe this ensures the independence and objectivity of what we do.
