Jason Bates of 11:FS interviews Rod Drury of Xero, who talks about his impressive background, which ultimately led to him founding Xero in 2006.

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 it as a disrupter in the space. We 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 recently, and we get Rod’s view on that, and how he always envisioned Xero being a globally recognised brand.
