James hates the challenges that small businesses experience while trying to meet their accounting requirements. He got that way by leading the accounting and tax development team at one of Canada’s most successful small business accounting firms, and spending a load of time working directly with small business owners on their accounting.

His mission at Wave: to continue to develop revolutionary tools that make accounting headaches disappear.
