Experienced Leader Joins Intacct as Director of the Intacct Accountants Program
SAN JOSE, Calif. – Oct. 9, 2014 – Intacct, a leader in cloud financial management and accounting software, today announced the hiring of Kevin Cumley as its new director of the Intacct Accountants Program offered in collaboration with CPA.com. The addition of Cumley to the Intacct Channels Team will help the company continue its growth with accounting firms and other providers of outsourced accounting services, and further strengthen Intacct’s relationship with CPA.com, an American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) company. Cumley reports to Taylor Macdonald, vice president of Channels at Intacct.
Kevin Cumley joins Intacct from Abila, where he was the vice president of Strategic Alliances. Prior to Abila, Kevin was the president of Forepoint – a top Sage and Deltek value-added reseller. Cumley also has a long-standing working relationship with CPA.com whose mission is empowering CPAs and businesses for the digital age.
Intacct has a strong and growing presence among top accounting firms. Currently, 28 of Accounting Today’s Top 100 Firms use Intacct applications to serve the needs of their clients – the most of any cloud financial system. Furthermore, in 2009, CPA.com named Intacct as a preferred provider of financial applications for AICPA Business Solutions.
“Intacct’s cloud financial applications plays an important role in helping top accounting firms serve as a trusted advisor for their clients,” said Taylor Macdonald, vice president of Channels for Intacct. “Kevin is an experienced leader and his addition to our team will provide a new level of focus around the Intacct Accountants Program. I am confident that Kevin’s strong background will allow him to deliver a high level of value and increase the success of all our partners.”
“The firms we’re recruiting into the Intacct Accountants Program are committed to building high-value strategic advisory practices,” said Michael Cerami, vice president of business development and corporate strategy for CPA.com. “Kevin understands the key to success in doing so is as much about firm enablement as it is about technology adoption. Our firms and strategic account teams will benefit greatly from his practical knowledge and insights.”
“I am excited to join Intacct and be a part of a dynamic team of top-notch channel professionals,” said Kevin Cumley. “Intacct has built an amazing program for accounting firms and I’m passionate about helping to make a positive difference for these partners. I look forward to continue working closely with CPA.com to help accounting firms leverage the benefits of the cloud with Intacct, and expanding Intacct’s successful accountants program.”
