MGI Australasia is welcoming its newest member this month in the shape of MPR Group, a four-partner firm based in Melbourne.
It marks the start of an exciting phase for MGI in Australia as it seeks to double revenues from the current $35 million over the next two years.
MGI is currently ranked 28th in Australia’s BRW (Business Review Weekly) top accounting firms listing and has offices in Adelaide, Brisbane, Auckland, Cairns, Gold Coast, North Queensland, Perth, Port Pirie, Sydney and now Melbourne.
With expansion the goal, MGI Australasia Chairman Grant Field says he is delighted to have MPR join the MGI fold.
"MPR is an outstanding firm and brings complementary as well as additional practice skills to the group," he said.
MPR Founding Partner Marc Peskett said he and his partners were looking forward to working with MGI firms from around the world.
“Joining a group ranked the 8th fastest growing in Asia with regards to size is both a privilege and an opportunity,” he said. "We see this as a great way to service our existing clients, particularly those with global aspirations, and to lift our own firm’s profile and reach in the process.”
Both agree that MGI and MPR are the right ‘cultural fit’ for each other. Field says MPR is “aspirational, innovative and growth orientated” - attributes shared by the alliance’s global members.
MPR Managing Partner Matt Murphy adds: "This is a strategic move for us. We serve businesses ranging from small to medium, to the family business arena to large publicly listed entities. MGI brings a lot to the table for all of those clients. We also compete against the big-four quite often and this size, depth and breadth frankly, helps us.”
For MPR, the global reach of MGI is essential as it seeks to build contacts and partnerships across the world on behalf of its clients.
“Critical to our decision making was the ability MGI gives us to partner with some 315 MGI firms across 82 countries, this is of key benefit for some of our clients as they pursue global expansion,” says Mr Murphy.
