Ep. 137. Interview: Rod Drury, Founder & CEO, Xero

30min listen

Jason Bates interviews Rod Drury, Founder and CEO of accounting software firm, Xero.

In this episode, Jason Bates interviews Rod Drury, finding out about his multi-skilled and impressive background which ultimately led to him founding Xero in 2006.

We asked about how in his view, Xero is transforming the space for SMBs and accountants, and whether he sees Xero as a disrupter in the space. They also discuss Xero's platform, data and partnership, opportunities post PSD2 and their relationships with banks.

All this comes ahead of Xero's flagship event, Xerocon, the London leg of the event that kicked off this week, and we get Rod's view on that, and how he always envisioned Xero being a globally recognised brand.
