Introducing Peter Karpas

I’m up in San Francisco this week as our new North American CEO Peter Karpas joins the team.

There was video crew in the office so managed to get him on film …

When I first met Peter at PayPal a couple of years ago I thought he was one of the smartest people I’d met and we had a great session sparking off each other. It’s fantastic to have him on the team and leading our US efforts.

Yes Peter I agree with @Gayle, your four reasons resonated with me too;

“I think Xero can win”

I’m liking the added horsepower for the US market!

With the Microsoft background of some of the new guys any chance we’ll start seeing some Windows phone integration soon?

Peter seems so young…but then that is probably because I am so old I guess
