Financial firm founder does the double at Yorkshire Accountancy awards

A Yorkshire-based finance management specialist has won a prestigious regional industry award for the second year running.

Martin Mellor, founder and managing director of Mellor Financial Management, has won the ‘advisor of the year’ award in the second Yorkshire Accountancy Awards 2019.

The ceremony, which took place at New Dock Hall in Leeds on Wednesday 8th May, saw hundreds of people in attendance to celebrate accountancy achievements across the Yorkshire region.

Having recently celebrated its fourth year in business, Mellor Financial Management has experienced a >300% increase in revenue and continuous year-on-year growth, adding a training arm to its portfolio of financial support packages. Sub-branded Mellor Financial Training, the firm successfully launched its training offering in Leeds, expanding into Manchester, Birmingham and London. Rising demand has seen the firm schedule training courses in Edinburgh later this year too.

Founded in 2015, Mellor Financial Management works with a range of businesses across industries including manufacturing, professional services, retail, hospitality and events.

The Yorkshire Accountancy Awards has been developed to celebrate the achievements of local small, mid-tier and large firms operating in the financial sector.

Martin commented: “Retaining the title of the advisor of the year award for a second time is a real privilege. We aim to do things differently by not only partnering with our clients but becoming embedded into their team to support them on their journey for growth.

“It has truly been a phenomenal year for Mellor Financial, we’ve recently celebrated our fourth year in  business, have expanded to develop training for small business owners, have taken on addition staff and have demonstrated year-on-year growth, so to win this award really means so much as recognition for the hard work put in over the last four years.”
