Getting advice from our Partners

We’ve created an award-winning product and a sound business model that transposes well to the US. However, one size doesn’t always fit all. There are subtle and not-so-subtle differences between the different markets, and different markets require different strategies. As we grow in the US, we want to make sure we’re aligned with American small businesses as well as accountants and bookkeepers. That’s why we’ve created the Xero Partner Advisory Council (XPAC).

We are proud to announce this year’s XPAC members as follows:

Gary Boomer

Steve Chaney 

Doug Sleeter

Magen Smith

Jim Wilkinson

The XPAC will help us find and solve the accounting problems that are specific to the United States. This means we’ll be working with the XPAC on essentially everything: product development, sales strategy, support channels and our overall US vision.

Thanks to their front-line experience, they have unparalleled understanding of what American accountants, bookkeepers and small business owners need from their software. We’ll pick their brains and turn big-picture strategies into real-world solutions for small business owners and their advisors.

The XPAC will meet every quarter and each year we’ll be rotating in new members to keep the ideas and contributions fresh. If you are interested in becoming an XPAC member, please connect with me on LinkedIn and tell me how you are going to help revolutionize the accounting industry:
