Firm History

Our History

DavisKelly is a peer-reviewed, accounting firm founded by Nancy Kelly and Randall Davis which focuses on serving the not-for-profit and tax exempt community. The firm serves over one hundred not-for-profit organizations with budgets which range from $300K to $1 billion. We hold state licenses in New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts.

Nancy Kelly has over 25 years of serving the not-for-profit community in various capacities. She started in the operating room as a registered nurse, was a regulator at Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Operational Services Division, and then started her own business working with not-for-profit organizations across Massachusetts. Nancy expanded her company to New York after the tragic events on September 11, 2001 when she was hired by the Empire State Development Corporation to develop and implement a program for capacity building targeted to 200 businesses in New York’s Lower Manhattan. It was through this program she was able to facilitate the connection between the businesses and New York City to gain access to the much needed funds being made available during that crucial time.

Randall Davis was the Quality Review Partner at Daniel Dennis & Company for 27 years providing audit, accounting and advisory services to the governmental, not-for-profit and affordable housing industries before joining Nancy to form DavisKelly.
