One of the most satisfying aspects of building a company is attracting and working with the most experienced, appropriate and talented people. This is one of most rewarding parts of leading any organization.
Karbon has simply the best team in the industry that I know of, and we’re hugely proud to add a Sales Director, Asia-Pacific to join us.
Richard Snell has accounting in his veins. He brings almost 20 years of leadership experience working for SaaS companies in the accounting industry including MYOB, QuickFee and Wolters Kluwer, and is the ideal addition to the Karbon team. He furthers our commitment to improving the way accounting practices work and serve their clients.
Richard will continue to do what he is passionate about — helping accounting practices utilize innovative technology. His role will be to listen and advise firms to help them grow, embrace change and become more profitable.
“It is such an exciting time for accounting firms in Australia right now. The practices who capitalize on the opportunities technology and other advancements give them stand to be rewarded significantly, and I can’t wait to help them achieve this. ”
With only 29% of Karbon’s revenue coming from the Asia-Pacific region, the opportunity for Karbon remains enormous. Particular with the MYOB and Reckon/APS deal falling through recently, all practices will be considering their practice management decisions over the next 2–3 years. Huge change is predicted in this coming period.
Karbon is perfectly positioned to assist all practices through this change, and Richard is the one to guide the experience.
