Xero goes Hollywood

Well not quite yet, but we have taken the first step by opening a new Los Angeles home for our Southern California team.


The new office is a stylish and convenient shared creative space called WeWork located in downtown Hollywood. The space is filled with a range of tenants from filmmakers and production companies to social media entrepreneurs and innovative tech startups.


Our growing base of Xero partners in Los Angeles and surrounding areas are very excited to hear that Xero has expanded our operations to SoCal. Tom Compere of RBZ based in Los Angeles became a Xero Certified Partner in January and is building his Xero practice while working on some interesting vertical marketing strategies. 

Blake Oliver, owner of Cloudsourced Accounting based in Woodland Hills, became a Xero Certified Partner last December and has grown his practice to Silver Level in a few short months.

Blake told us that “getting Xero certified was the best business decision I’ve ever made. I have to bring in a partner just to keep up with the business I’m getting!”.

He also attributes some of the growth in customers to his simplistic pricing plans that bundle services into a fixed monthly fee, not hourly work. He’s part of a growing segment of accounting professionals and bookkeepers that are catering to client demands and driving away the billable hour.

So, if you operate in the LA area, drop us a line and we’ll introduce you to Xero.
