Derek Dougherty, formerly of KPMG, has joined MNP’s Prince George office as a partner in the specialty tax practice.

Dougherty brings more than 15 years of accounting and tax experience, with expertise in audit and review, insolvency transactions, reorganizations, planning, acquisitions, and divestitures. He has supported numerous First Nations, not-for-profit, and private business clients in Northern British Columbia.

Dougherty joins MNP from KPMG, where he spent 13 years and latterly was a senior manager in the enterprise tax practice. He also has experience in the commercial banking industry, including over five years at Canadian Western Bank, where he was an AVP and branch manager, and CIBC, where he spent over two years as a manager.

Dougherty has a bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Northern British Columbia and is a chartered professional accountant.

“We are excited to welcome Derek into the MNP family. Our cultures and values are well-aligned, and we share the same entrepreneurial, trusted approach to doing business,” said Jameel Sayani, regional managing partner, Northern BC, MNP.

MNP expanded its Prince George office with the acquisition of Deloitte’s Prince George practice in September 2019. The deal added an office team of 21 people, including four partners.

“I believe that joining MNP is a perfect example of how we can come together to give clients the edge they need to stay competitive and overcome current business and industry challenges in what is an historically unusual time for all organizations,” Dougherty said. “By joining MNP I will help to provide clients, including Indigenous nations, businesses, and individuals, with even greater value in the future.”

MNP earlier this week acquired the St. John’s, Newfoundland practice of PwC.

The Calgary-based accountancy has more than 8,200 employees across 128 offices in Canada.
