Kashoo - makers of iPad-based and online accounting software used in over 180 countries by over 51,000 small business owners, start-ups, entrepreneurs, freelancers, bookkeepers, and accountants - is pleased to welcome new Director of Business Development Kasey Bayne.
Previously the Accounting Ambassador at FreshBooks, Bayne will run Kashoo's partnership development strategies and execution as well as identify and develop new channels that will put the Kashoo product in the hands of even more small business owners, accountants, and bookkeepers who require real small business accounting software via the web and the iPad.
"I'm excited," said Bayne. "Opportunities to join a growing start-up at essentially the ground floor don't come along too often. And I really feel that Kashoo's belief in the iPad and the Cloud as the next great frontier for real small business accounting is spot on. This whole idea of 'anytime, anywhere connectivity' is the future, and we're going to lead the way."
Bayne also will play an active role in the Kashoo MVP Program, helping new accountant and bookkeeper members with onboarding, best practices, and insight on ways Kashoo can help them become an even more vital business asset to their clients.
"It pretty much goes without saying that we're thrilled to be bringing Kasey aboard," said Kashoo CEO, Jim Secord. "Her energy, industry knowledge, passion for working with accountants and bookkeepers, her business development experience . . . all of it is incredible and fits right in with where we are taking Kashoo: the leader in real Cloud accounting."
Bayne earned a CPA Practice Advisor "Top 40 under 40" award in 2011 and 2012. She was also named one of Accounting Today's "Ones to Watch" in 2011 and 2012. Before diving into the accounting software world, she worked with countless small businesses as a marketing manager at Javelin Technologies, an engineering software company that sold SolidWorks 3D CAD software.
