We are deeply saddened at the loss of Mark Mellor, Firefly’s managing director, who has died from cancer. He leaves behind his wife, Claire Walker and their three children, Toby (15), Robyn and Max (12).

Mark served Firefly for over 23 years, joining the fledgling company after just nine months of trading. He was instrumental in guiding, shaping and building the business.

Mark was a great businessman, an excellent PR operator and dedicated dad. He will be missed by many.

  2. Mark was a valued colleague during my early days with Countrywide and always brought a smile to your face.  Each time I met him at industry events he was warm, charming and fun to be with.  Thoughts and prayers to his family and blessings to Mark on his journey.
