Marketplace to benefit with enhanced services and more resources
CALGARY, Nov. 12, 2014 /CNW/ - Draganjac Pressman Chartered Professional Accountants, a Mississauga-based accounting and consulting firm, will merge with MNP LLP, one of Canada's largest national accounting and business consulting firms, effective January 1, 2015. Draganjac Pressman was looking for an opportunity to offer more specialty services to its clients, while MNP sought more resources to serve the Mississauga/Etobicoke region.
Established in 1990, Draganjac Pressman delivers services in accounting, tax, and consulting to entrepreneurial business owners in a wide variety of sectors including real estate & construction, manufacturing, private enterprise, and hospitality.
"We had been looking for some time to add more resources and specialty services and felt the best way to do that was to join forces with MNP," says Joseph Draganjac, Managing Partner, Draganjac Pressman. "With deep expertise in providing professional services to the private enterprise, real estate & construction, manufacturing, and hospitality sectors and wide array of organizations— locally, across the country, as well as through affiliates around the globe—MNP enhances our firm's ability to ensure our clients can address all their business needs no matter where their business takes them."
Operating since 1945, MNP has over 80 offices and a team of more than 3,000 from Victoria to Montreal.
"We are delighted to have the professionals of Draganjac Pressman join MNP. Their commitment to providing outstanding value and service to their clients matched the MNP approach," says Sean Wallace, Executive Vice President (EVP) for Ontario and Quebec. "Their highly personalized service has been the hallmark of Draganjac Pressman for the past 25 years. In fact, it has been their philosophy that an informed client is better able to assist when determining the strategies and advice that will best meet the client's needs. It's a philosophy we share."
Draganjac adds that MNP has an organizational culture and values founded upon an unwavering commitment to people that is similar to Draganjac Pressman. "MNP is quite simply a fun and rewarding place to work and do business, where authentic relationships, an entrepreneurial spirit and a healthy balance between home and work life are at the core of how business is run. We are excited to grow together in our efforts to help our clients and staff achieve even greater success."
Joining MNP from Draganjac Pressman are 11 team members, including two partners, three CAs, one CGA and five other technicians, admin and support staff. The new team will remain in their current location until sometime in the New Year, where they will move into MNP's new Mississauga location at Mississauga Square One - 50 Burnhamthorpe Road West, Suite 900.
