Rod Drury: Entrepreneur of the Year
Congratulations to our CEO Rod Drury for last night winning the New Zealand Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award, sponsored by ASB.
From Rod this morning:
“This really means a lot to me. I started my career at Arthur Young and went through the merger when EY started. I’m so grateful for doing my apprenticeship with such a great firm and being part of an outstanding alumni.”
“It was also significant that ASB Bank was the principal sponsor, as the ASB was the first bank to give Xero overnight Bank Feeds. That kicked off an accounting revolution where now it’s expected that all accounting software should have that feature.”
“Anyone who has done a business know it’s all about the team. It’s humbling to be part of such a great group of people.”
We’re stoked with what Rod’s achieved and continues to achieve both with Xero and in the way he is helping New Zealand and small businesses globally.
An absolute inspiration.
