I have only been at MP&F for 30 days. Already, I see how the tagline “do great work, have fun, make money” represents the culture at MP&F – a culture that has lasted for 30 years. From the little things, like moving a staff meeting outside when the office is too cold for some, to the unexpected things, like taking pictures with a catfish to support the Preds, surprises are common. But, working here is not always fun and games.

There are two ways to gain perspective: Experience and Altitude. MP&F has both. Join us in 2017 as we celebrate our 30th anniversary by sharing the View From 30. “Nobody cares about your anniversary.”           – Anonymous MP&F Pessimist That pessimistic, but true, statement was one of the shiniest of the gold nuggets to come out of our initial planning sessions for MP&F’s 30th anniversary, which began on January 1, 2017. That statement has endured as our guiding mantra, reminding us that, in order to leverage our anniversary to engage external audiences – to make you … Read More
