Xero announced today the appointment of a new managing director for the UK operation.
Reading through the announcement I reflected on a couple of things that have continued to impress me with Xero. One has been their clear vision and their ability to communicate that vision simply to employees, small businesses, accountants, banks, and other stakeholders. They have a clear and exciting BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal). A second thing that continues to impress me has been their ability to build around that vision an excellent team of capable, experienced, high-calibre individuals. Once again, I am impressed by the calibre of the appointment to the head of the UK operation.
I look forward to watching Xero enhance their foothold in the UK against Sage!
Disclosure: I am a Xero shareholder and one of many delighted Xero customers!
