Our Story

At Fairground we believe in a world where purpose-driven business is business-as-usual.  We’re all about mixing good business with social impact and are hugely passionate about supporting social enterprises and startups.

Having been born out of the Enspiral network as “Enspiral Accounting” in April 2012, we are proudly an Enspiral Venture and are backed by a network of collaborators who are committed to working with organisations with a strong social purpose.

Social Mission

Our hearts are with helping NFPs, Charities and Social Enterprises succeed with their own social mission. The small thing we can do to help them succeed is by providing them with awesome accounting advice and support. That’s why we offer these organisations a 25% discount on their fees.

We’ve taken on the social enterprise “buy one, give one” concept, so for every business which signs up to our monthly subscription package, this helps fund us to provide social organisations with discounted services. So basically by paying your accounting fee, you’re helping out another organisation!

Got a social drive and looking for help with managing your financials? 
We’d love to hear from you to have a conversation about how we can support your social mission.

Our Team

We’re based in Wellington and Christchurch but physical location is no barrier, we can meet online wherever you are!

Charmaine Meyers

Charmaine Meyers

Director - Wellington

Charmaine is our Wellington Director. She has a good sense of humor, friendly and is very
helpful. Charmaine is most happy when doing good work for our clients and helping to make
financial issues less stressful. She is proud of creating Fairground with Antz and seeing the
positive impact our clients are making on the world. If she could change the working world,
Charmaine would want people to feel more valued in their workplace and like they are
making a contribution to doing something good. When not at work, you will find Charmaine
walking, hanging out with friends and family, watching Shortland Street or gardening. In her
hoodie, Charmaine is ready to begin work!

Anthony Rohan

Anthony Rohan

Director - Christchurch

Antz is our Christchurch Director. Antz is focused, optimistic and a little alternative. He
enjoys a nice Belgium beer, DJing or most weekends he’s volunteering with Civil Defence
rescue. Just as much as Antz enjoys doing the above, he gets energised from seeing the
impactful things our client do through the ventures they set up. If Antz could change the
working world, he would like to see tax returns automated so accountants have more time
to focus on advising their clients rather than compliance. He’d also like to see everyone
receive a living wage. If you prefer to work in jeans, hoodie and sneakers, Antz can 100%
relate to you!

Kit Nelson

Kit is our Christchurch accountant. He’s super motivated, honest and understanding. He’s a
man of habit and is often found out enjoying coffee or helping lead a meaningful protest.
Kit’s proudly part of Generation Zero and making a difference around climate change.
Biking, good food, sense of purpose is what will put a smile on his face. Kit believes in equal
rights in the workplace and enjoys everyday being different in the office. If it’s not jeans and an open shirt over a t-shirt, it’s not Kit.

Martina Marr

Martina Marr

Manager - Christchurch

Martina is our Manager all the way from Slovakia. She loves to help to add value to each of
our clients and is very proud of becoming an accountant in a foreign land. You’ll find
Martina in a smart dress with suitable shoes she can ride her scooter in to work. She’s very
thoughtful, has a good eye for detail and a little playfully silly. If she’s not outdoors with her
family, she’s inside enjoying a book. Martina would love to see the working world have
more of a human touch and be less robotic. If genuine human connection is important to you, Martina is here to chat!

Renee Pinnell

Renee Pinnell

Business Support - Christchurch

Renee is our Business Support guru. She’s the youngest in the office but don’t let that fool
you. She’s super encouraging, out-going and relatable. When her day is up, Renee is straight
outside enjoying as much sun as she can. Showing up in jeans, t-shirt and a blazer most
days, Renee enjoys learning as much as she can to enable her to help our clients. Renee
currently works half her week with us and the other half for Social Currency.
