Reckon Software, the rapidly growing UK arm of the Reckon Group, announces the appointment of Leigh Lawson, who joins the company as Partner Development Manager. His focus will be to sharpen the Reckon Partner Programme and make it the most attractive in the market.
Leigh is joining at an important time following the launch of Reckon’s affordable and simple to use online accounting software, Reckon One, which is designed to make running business finances easier and faster. Formerly a member of the Xero Partner Development Team, Leigh brings valuable experience from working closely with UK accounting firms.
Mark Woolley, Director at Reckon Software says: “Leigh is a major signing for Reckon and his joining is testament to the importance of our Partner Channel. His extensive knowledge of the market means that he understands how to proactively support and guide our relationships with partners and I am certain, he will be a great asset to the company.”
“The opportunity that exists for Reckon with Reckon One in the UK is huge,” Leigh adds. “No other online accounting software gives small businesses such flexibility and the opportunity to choose features they want and only pay for those. It stands proudly alongside others in the market. I am looking forward to helping accountants remove relationship blockers such as Excel and to moving their clients to online accounting so they’re able to free up valuable time and add more value.”
Reckon partner benefits include free licences of Reckon One for internal use in the firm, commission, the opportunity to collaborate with Reckon on joint marketing initiatives with potential access to presenters, exclusive training tools and product resources.
