Moody Famiglietti & Andronico LLP (MFA) of Tewksbury, Mass., announced the expansion of its operations with the establishment of a wholly owned Canadian subsidiary, MFA Canada.
The firm is opening an office in the Greater Montreal area and has appointed Gregg Hamilton-Piercy as its managing director. Hamilton-Piercy will continue to oversee the firm’s U.S. valuation operations as he builds a Canadian team to provide local services and support to the Canadian market.
Since 2011, Hamilton-Piercy has served as managing director of the valuation practice at MFA’s affiliate company, MFA Cornerstone Consulting, LLC. He has a diversified background in corporate finance that includes managing valuation and related engagements intended for a variety of purposes including gift and estate tax matters, mergers and acquisitions, equity buy/sell agreements and financial reporting.
“The inherent strength of our solutions is increasingly finding appeal in some of the world’s largest markets and the Canadian market, in particular, represents a huge opportunity for us,” says Carl Famiglietti, MFA MP. “Investing in a locally-based office provides an even greater opportunity for MFA to partner with Canadian-based businesses, entrepreneurs, executives, shareholders and individuals and develop long-term, mutually rewarding relationships in the region.”
Hamilton-Piercy says, “I am excited to lead the firm’s expansion efforts into Canada. MFA is a highly innovative organization and I am confident that our winning formula as a proactive and trusted business advisor will resonate with Canadian companies and ultimately, change the accounting, finance and business consulting landscape there.”
