Wow – what a start to 2019! First we were recognized as one of the Top 50 Cloud Accountants in North America. And then last night, we won top honours at the annual Xero Americas Awards 2018 in Santa Fe, New Mexico, claiming the Emerging Partner of the Year award.

Xero, a global small business platform, has over 100,000 business advisors worldwide as part of its network and so we consider it an outstanding achievement to be recognized as one of the industry’s best in the United States and Canada.

Winners were judged across a number of criteria including innovation, ability to boost productivity and provide client solutions, strong marketing strategies, certification, and usage of cloud technology tools to provide value to small business customers. This year’s Xero Americas Awards 2018 judging panel included key executives from Xero and guest judge Ranica Arrowsmith, technology editor at Accounting Today. 

“Technology provides the power and tools for today’s accountants and bookkeepers to become true business advisors. With the assistance of cloud technology, advisors can help small business owners ease pain points and empower them to achieve success,” said Keri Gohman, President of Xero Americas. “Our winners stand out for their commitment to providing small businesses with the right support and strategic guidance, and we are delighted to award Teed Saunders Doyle with this honour.” 

“We are proud to be recognized for the work we do in our community. Beyond helping a small business with their taxes or compliance, we strive to help them achieve their long-term goals,” said TJ Smith, one of our partners who, along with tax partner Jeff Saunders, accepted the award on behalf of the firm. “Cloud accounting technology and business automation tools provide us with an opportunity to transform how small businesses operate.”

“The clients we have helped implement Xero in conjunction with other automation software get access to better data about their business and they love the time these tools free up in their day so that they can focus more on running and growing their business,” said Saunders. “This award validates the innovation and high standards our team sets so we can continue providing more guidance and value to our clients.”
