Dean Schultz has been announced as a new partner with MPR, switching firms after more than 10 years at Grant Thornton.
Mr Schultz specialises in advising privately held businesses and was formerly Victorian head of Grant Thornton's real estate and construction group.
MPR said Mr Schultz is experienced in growth reporting, board advisory, investment or divestment of business, transactions structures and support, as well as regulatory compliance.
Managing partner at MPR, Matt Murphy, welcomed Mr Schultz, saying his appointment is an important step in the firm’s growth path.
“Dean’s appointment is another link in the chain of the significant growth MPR and MGI has seen recently, and continues to add to our expertise for our clients," Mr Murphy said.
Mr Schultz said he is excited to be joining the firm, praising MPR for its diversity and nimbleness.
"It is large enough to have areas of expertise like R&D tax incentives and grants, and an absolute depth of knowledge in international and corporate tax, through to board advisory, reporting and virtual CFO and CTO offerings – for a firm of this size that is not common," he said.
"We are always thrilled to see our firms expand their key partners and team members," Grant Field, Australasian chair of MGI network added. "It once again demonstrates the high level of skill and expertise we have and attract within MGI at both our local firm level, like MPR in Melbourne, and at a global level.
"As a result, clients can do business internationally, yet retain the local service and relationships."
This is the second executive appointment by MPR in recent months, following corporate tax specialist Mark Wilson joining from PwC.
