Mira Kelly Ltd
John Kelly, a pioneer figure in British and European fundraising, had used HB&O as his personal accountants for many years, so when he founded John Kelly Consulting Ltd in 2010 – which was subsequently renamed Mira Kelly in 2012 – it made sense to continue to work with the HB&O team, including charities specialist Mark Ashfield.
Mira Kelly has its own in-house business manager, Melody Fuller. Melody highlights the way that HB&O acts as her “first port of call” for advice and is able to provide a complete spectrum of support as particular benefits from the relationship.
She says: “John and a group of longstanding colleagues, all based in Europe, created the MIRA Alliance to promote and share best practice. With Mark’s advice and help, the alliance was incorporated as MIRA Partnership Ltd in the UK in January 2013.
“HB&O is very approachable and I am always able to speak to someone there when I need to. Whatever I have put their way, they’ve always been able to deal with it.”
