KRP LLP: Celebrating our 50th anniversary and a new office location

625 Cochrane Drive on KRP's anniversary

There are relatively few businesses that have the pleasure of celebrating a 10-year anniversary, let alone 50. We’re very proud to join that latter club as KRP LLP marks a half-century providing accounting, assurance, tax and consulting services to entrepreneurs across all industries.

We’re also very excited to announce our upcoming move to a new office building at 625 Cochrane Drive, Suite 900, in Markham.

After several decades at our John Street location, we thought the time was right for a change of scenery. Specifically, we wanted to relocate to a space that was more accessible (located directly adjacent to Highway 404) and better reflected the ambitions of our workforce. Our more spacious, modern floor plan creates new opportunities for meetings, team collaboration and is an overall better space to deliver the level of service you’ve come to expect from KRP LLP over the past five decades.

Our official move-in date is scheduled for June 1st, 2023. Stay tuned for more news—and an open invitation to visit our new office—in the weeks ahead.

Reflecting on a half-century of success  

Founded by retired partners Harvey Kestenberg and Ralph Rabinowicz in 1973, our firm has evolved significantly over the years. The faces across our leadership group and team have changed, we now number more than 35 individuals, including tax specialists, accountants, strategic advisors and support staff, and our business has grown significantly since those early days. We now count some of the Greater Toronto Area’s most successful companies—namely yours—as clients. Our team also regularly delivers services to organizations in Canada expanding abroad, or foreign companies looking to establish a presence in Canada, through KRP LLP’s membership in the Russell Bedford International global network of accounting firms.

What hasn’t changed is our team’s commitment to service excellence and our work to understand the pressing challenges and opportunities that face your organization every day. Our core values are as strong as ever. From focusing on the details and believing in dynamic adaptation—growing alongside our clients—to treating your company as if it were our own. In short, we feel honoured to count KRP LLP as your trusted advisor.

A culture built on strong relationships

They say that if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life—and although there’s no doubt we spend a great number of hours in the workplace, it never feels like work.  That’s always been the privilege of being able to deliver services to such a unique group of clients, alongside some very special colleagues.

Our firm is firmly built on relationships. Many of our clients have relied on our team to manage their accounting needs, while consulting on the issues that matter most to them or their organizations, for nearly as long as KRP LLP has been in existence. We’ve worked with multiple generations of entrepreneurial families, helping them to manage the growth and transition of their businesses—often through a sale, merger or family succession—along with a range of dynamic organizations ranging from tech firms to not-for-profits.

Those valued relationships extend to our industry partners. We work closely with major banks, law firms and even other accounting firms in the U.S. and abroad, all to deliver the best possible service experience and to ensure that we have the necessary expertise and network contacts to help your business grow.

Extending our gratitude

Your support, along with that of our partners, is the foundation of our growth here at KRP LLP. So, too, is the hard work and dedication of our team. We’re proud to have built a workplace where our team members can learn, thrive and then progress into leadership roles. Their technical proficiency and focus on timely service is unparalleled. So, too, is their passion for servicing your accounting and strategic consulting needs.

As we continue to celebrate this very special birthday throughout 2023, we’d like to take the opportunity to thank you once again for being such an important part of our firm’s success. We look forward to helping you achieve your business goals in the 50 years ahead.

George Grignano and Armando Iannuzzi, Co-Managing Partners
