One of the best things about attending Xerocon is the chance to grow your network, put faces to names and build valuable relationships.
As a global cloud-based company, we also love the opportunity to spend some time ‘on the ground’ with our partners, getting to know you a little better, meeting new accountants and finding out more about your business.
If you’re heading along to Xerocon Brisbane, we’d love you to stop by the Figured stand to meet us! Here’s a quick introduction of who’s who in the zoo.
Dave Dodds - CEO
Anyone in a room with Dave can’t help but get inspired by his energy - especially when it comes to spreading the word about Figured. He’s excited to be in town for Xerocon, seeing the impact that Xero and Figured is making on the agri-advisory scene. And we’re sure you’ll get a buzz from him too - once you’ve had a chance to chat to Dave you’ll see he’s always happy to share his energy, vision and drive for connecting farmers with their advisors to lift the financial performance of farmers around the globe.
John Gibson - GM, NZ & AU
Born and bred in Southland, John is a country boy from New Zealand's rural heartland, with a passion for technology’s ability to transform the industry. This, paired with a background in the agri sector working for one of New Zealand’s largest lamb and beef exporters, means John is inspired by the opportunities that Figured has to make farming rock. John is excited to see you all at Xerocon and make sure we’re giving you the best ag-tech experience you can get!
Jimmy Forward - Customer Success Lead, AU
Jimmy's role is to oversee the implementation of key projects and partnerships for Figured in Australia. He loves all things cloud, and solving real world problems with technology, so he’s our Figured product guru of the event. For anything product related or if you want a deep dive into Figured, be sure to keep an eye out for Jimmy - he’s got you covered.
Dave McGregor - Business Development Manager, NZ
Dave is responsible for growing our relationships with our NZ partners and ensuring they have the right tools and tech they need to succeed. He’s hopping over the ditch to help make sure all our Kiwi partners feel at home amongst the Aussies - and of course to chat about how you can use the Figured product to step into the advisory opportunity.
Chris Vanderkolk - Head of Marketing
Chris is passionate about New Zealand’s growing global presence on the tech scene, as well as the contribution our farmers have to feeding the world's population. As our Marketing expert, he can help you figure out how you can market Figured to new clients, and how you can grow your practise through marketing and comms activity - he’s also down for some good ol’ fashioned yarns.
Dina Veljanovska - Marketing Communications Manager
Dina is responsible for our comms and running our marketing campaigns, and is very passionate about giving you the right tools and materials to explain the value of Figured to new clients. She'll be at Xerocon ready for a chat about how you're going with your journey to advisory, and how you're finding the Figured product. So if you're keen to feature on our social channels or website with any of your insights (or banter!) then keep an eye out for her.
