MONTREAL, June 11, 2013 /CNW/ - MNP LLP, one of Canada's largest
accounting and consulting firms, is pleased to announce they have
entered into a three-year partnership with the Montreal Alouettes.
"This partnership is significant in building MNP's brand presence and
name recognition in Montreal," says Rafik Greiss, Regional Co-Managing
Partner for MNP's Montreal office. "By associating ourselves with the
Alouettes, we are signalling to our business community that like the
organization, MNP delivers reliable and winning solutions for our
market and our clients."

Alouettes in 2012.
Mark Weightman, Chief Operating Officer with the Montreal Alouettes,
adds that the firm's sponsorship of the team shows their commitment to
an ever-growing presence in this city. "The Alouettes are pleased to
have partnered with such a dynamic firm and we look forward to having
our teams work together to showcase our passion for sport, for

the Percival Molson Stadium, but that he is particularly excited about
the newly created MNP Alumni Lounge, where guests will be able to meet
former Alouette players. "We are thrilled to offer Montrealers the
opportunity to interact with some of the legendary players who helped
the Alouettes become a CFL powerhouse over the years."
