According to a recent PWC report, 82% of financial institutions expect to increase technology partnerships in the next three to five years.

To meet these evolving needs, Bill.com has established partnerships with some of the largest U.S. financial institutions to help clients save time and improve cash flow through automating their back office. In his role, Josh will leverage his experience to enable existing partners and identify new partnership opportunities where the Bill.com Back Office Cloud can help strengthen their offerings for small businesses and mid-size companies.
“Bill.com is proud to be partnering with some of the nation’s leading and most innovative financial institutions, banks, and accounting software providers. I’m delighted to have Josh on our team to lead and grow these relationships,” said Bill.com CEO Renė Lacerte. “His creativity and deep experience in the industry will serve us well.”
