How you'll make an impact
Over the past 13 years Xero has successfully grown our business over 30% every year. This growth has been fuelled by our incredible partnerships with accountants and book-keepers across our network. Further, Xero’s growth has been driven by passionate leaders with a deep understanding of their customers and a real commitment to creating beautiful products that our customers, both small business and accountants, love.
This role will lead every part of our sales team globally, including Partner Sales, Partner Consulting, Enterprise and Vertical Accounts. It is also expected that this role will collaborate closely with our broader Customer teams as well as our Product teams, specifically with our Practice Tools and Enterprise Technology. We believe there is an extraordinary opportunity for the right leader to amplify our cross-regional collaboration and build systems, tools and processes that will not only accelerate our current performance, but also ease our entry into new markets and territories, whilst ensuring the business is aligned around common metrics.
This role will carefully balance the best of what makes Xero special while addressing critical dysfunctions that limit our effectiveness and hinder our speed to market. It will also carefully manage the balance between commonality where it makes sense, whilst appropriately reflecting regional nuances in our go to market approach.
Finally, our global sales leader will create the infrastructure and performance culture that enables Xero to increase our trajectory of partner and subscription growth, expand our ability to sell new products, increase ecosystem and financial services adoption and bolster our customer life-time value. We will build an adaptable, passionate salesforce that maintains Xero’s sales status as a trusted advisor while changing gears to accelerate long term customer value.
