Another big day at Xero this morning with three announcements that will excite our customers and partners.
- Accel, one of the top US tech investors, has invested $US100m into our company. With other investors we have put another $NZ140m in the tank and will head into the 2016 financial year with over 1/4 billion in the bank to fund innovation and growth.
- Graham Smith, who was most recently CFO at Salesforce, has joined our board. It’s great to have Graham on the team.
- Russ Fujioka has been appointed US President. Russ is one of the smartest marketing and growth executives I’ve met. We’ve been working with Russ for five months and are thrilled to complete our US leadership team.
We’re already getting some great feedback – and we welcome any questions in the comments section.
