Kamloop’s James Foucault CPA Inc. merges with MNP to benefit marketplace with enhanced services

THURSDAY, MARCH 16, CALGARY, AB – MNP LLP, one of Canada’s largest national accounting and business consulting firms, announced today that James Foucault CPA Inc., a Kamloops-based accounting firm, will merge with MNP, effective June 1, 2017. While James Foucault was looking to add much-needed resources and deliver more specialty services to clients, MNP was looking to expand its presence in Kamloops with a well-respected and client-focused firm that shares the same values.

“MNP has 18 offices in B.C and we have been looking for another like-minded firm to build on strategic plans for growth in the Thompson-Okanagan region after merging in Bruce Martin & Associates in 2016,” said Darren Turchansky, MNP’s Executive Vice President of the B.C. Region. “Since entering the Kamloops marketplace last year, we’ve continued to identify the need to grow our firm to serve the needs of this thriving community and we are excited to be adding to our team. As the B.C. economy continues to grow, so do the needs of the business community and we recognize that both the business community and our firms have an opportunity to grow together.”

MNP is one of the largest national accounting and consulting firms in Canada and employs over 3,500 team members from coast-to-coast. In addition to tax and accounting expertise, MNP delivers a diverse range of advisory services, including consulting, enterprise risk, corporate finance, valuation and litigation support, succession planning, estate planning, insolvency and restructuring, investigative and forensic accounting, cross-border taxation and more.

James Foucault CPA Inc. was established in January 2013 and has grown to a team of five, including an additional CPA and dedicated support staff. Committed to the communities they serve, they have been providing professional services in accounting, tax, succession, wealth management and business advisory to diverse industries and clients including private enterprise, forestry, retail services, hospitality, professionals and physicians.

“As the marketplace evolves and our client needs become more complex, we believe becoming part of a national firm with a local client service philosophy and greater breadth and depth of services and resources will serve our clients well and position us for continued success and growth. MNP serves a diverse group of clients, including private enterprise, professionals, health care, agriculture, oil & gas, retail services, trades and more—and truly understands our clients’ needs,” said Foucault. “We truly believe coming together will strengthen and deepen our existing leadership and offer our clients business advice specifically tailored to their business so they can continue to overcome current business and industry challenges.”

MNP credits its strategic mergers and acquisitions, organic growth, value-added services and corporate culture for catapulting the firm to see unprecedented growth rates year-after-year.

“To maintain our corporate culture, we have been very strategic about who we invite to join our team,” explained Trina Warren, MNP’s Regional Managing Partner, Thompson-Okanagan Region. “We carefully guard our corporate culture and thus, we have a low client and employee turnover and are attracting some of the brightest professionals in our industry. We are thrilled to have James and his team join us in our efforts to help the Kamloops and area business community achieve even greater success.”

Foucault added what appealed to him about MNP was not only has the firm been around almost 60 years serving a diverse range of clients but the firm also been recognized as one of the 50 Best Employers in Canada by the AON Hewitt for nine consecutive years. “MNP has an organizational culture and values founded on an unwavering commitment to people; creating a great place to work and do business, where a healthy balance between home and work life are at the core of how business is run. Our team is truly excited to be a part of the MNP family.”

The James Foucault CPA Inc. team will remain in their current location for the time being and plan to relocate into a new MNP location in late 2017.
