MyFirmsApp, the developers of the leading App platform for accountancy firms worldwide, today announced the appointment of Dan Richards as Strategic Partnerships Director. Dan’s new role will involve the creation of strategic partnerships with key players, both nationally and internationally, to extend the reach of the company’s OneApp technology to an even wider audience. The creation of these partnerships will help to ensure that accountants fully benefit from the impact of mobile so that they can meet the demands of their clients and prospects who increasingly want to work with firms that prioritise 24/7 connectivity.
Dan Richards has been involved with the company since its inception in 2012 and held the position of Head of Global Sales before his promotion. He is a recognised keynote speaker and has been helping accountants make the most of new techniques, strategies and digital and mobile technology for over 20 years.
He is passionate about helping firms maintain a key role in an increasingly digital world where always-on clients are demanding instant gratification from their service providers and accountancy firms are at risk from getting lost in the noise. He believes that there exists a real opportunity for firms of all sizes to better engage clients and turn ‘digital’ to their advantage.
“The knowledge, expertise and experience that Dan brings to the company is invaluable and his new role will help further strengthen our strategic relationships and take advantage of the many approaches from third parties wanting to combine the OneApp mobile platform with their own technology and reinforce our position as world leader in the development of Apps for the accounting profession,” commented Gavin Disney-May, Executive Chairman, MyFirmsApp. “It is an incredibly exciting time as accountants are realising that they need to use digital technology to amplify their voices and reconnect their brands with clients and prospects with more regular and relevant interactions.”
