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."
MNP is Canada's fastest-growing accounting and consulting firm**, with almost 80 offices across the country and over 3,000 team members that specialize in tax, accounting and business consulting. The Montreal office has a team of over 200 and is recognized as a strong supporter of community organizations and events. MNP first partnered with the Alouettes in 2012.

"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 excellence and for our city."
Greiss says the MNP brand will be visible in a number of locations at 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."
