Rick Hamilton's Parkhill-Based Practice Joins MNP to Benefit Marketplace with Increased Resources and Enhanced Services
CALGARY, April 11, 2019 /CNW/ - MNP, Canada's fifth-largest national accounting and business consulting firm, announced today that Rick Hamilton (of Thomson & Hamilton) and his Parkhill-based practice will merge with MNP, effective July 8, 2019.
Rick Hamilton and his team provide financial statement assurance and accounting services, corporate, personal and tax compliance services, basic bookkeeping and small business accounting advice. Hamilton's clients include a large proportion of agriculture businesses, particularly in the dairy, poultry, swine and beef sectors.
Since founding in 1958, MNP has helped clients coast-to-coast across Canada by delivering diverse services and specialized expertise in every sector and area of business. MNP is proud to be a uniquely Canadian firm and has one of the largest and most respected agriculture practices in the country.
While Hamilton was looking to add more resources and find new ways to help his clients succeed, MNP was looking to build upon its growing agriculture presence in Southwestern Ontario.
"We are always looking at ways to help our clients achieve their goals," said Hamilton. "One of our own goals has been to add more resources, including gaining access to more specialized services and a broader range of industry expertise and experience in the agriculture space, so that we can better provide our clients with even greater value in the future."
Doug Greenhow, Regional Managing Partner of MNP's Southwestern Ontario business, said Hamilton and his team are a great fit as MNP continues to expand its agricultural presence in Southwestern Ontario. "We are known across Canada's agricultural communities as being one of the most trusted accounting and business consulting firms, so we are excited to welcome Rick – who is a well-established local leader in this field – to our firm," said Greenhow. "Rick shares our values and client-centric approach and has helped many agriculture businesses to reach their full potential."
In addition to tax and accounting expertise, MNP delivers a range of advisory services to agriculture businesses, including: consulting, corporate finance, succession planning, insolvency and restructuring, technology solutions and cyber security, and agriculture tax strategy consulting.
MNP credits its strategic mergers and acquisitions, organic growth, value-added services and values-led culture as the reasons for its continued success.
"MNP has always been very strategic about who we invite to join the family," said Greenhow. "Both MNP's and Rick Hamilton's cultures and values are well-aligned, and we share the same passion for and commitment to agriculture as one of Canada's core industries. It's truly a win-win for both of our firms and for agriculture businesses across the Southwestern Ontario marketplace."
"MNP has always been known for being local in focus with a small-firm culture and commitment to supporting the communities that its teams live and work in," added Hamilton. "I knew that joining MNP would be a good fit for our clients and my team and I am excited about the future. To join a firm with the depth of resources that MNP offers, while maintaining our local focus is truly a unique and exceptional opportunity."
