Jody Padar, The Radical CPA, Joins the Botkeeper Team

Boston, Mass. – ​Botkeeper has announced today that Jody Padar, one of Accounting  Today's Top 100 Most Influential People in the profession, will become Botkeeper's Vice  President of Strategy and work to bring the company closer to the accounting  profession.

As many in the industry already know, Jody has  been working with "the Bots" over the last 18  months, helping to evolve their technology with  ongoing customer feedback. 

"Botkeeper exceeded our hopes and quickly be-  came a partner I sought to join forces with," said  Jody Padar, the CEO and Principal of New Vision  CPA Group in Chicago, IL (as well as the author  of From Success to Significance: The Radical CPA  Guide and The Radical CPA: New Rules for the  Future-Ready Firm). "Botkeeper shares the same  values we have for excellent service, expertise,  curating a technology-driven environment which I am excited to be a part of, and which our customers, and the accounting industry as a whole, will significantly benefit from."

"I'm so excited to have Jody join the team," said Enrico Palmerino, CEO of Botkeeper.

"As an early cloud adopter and practice management innovator, this role will be a

commitment to the accounting industry in a way most software vendors can only dream of." Palmerino also noted that it's invigorating to have the industry as excited about this

valuable addition as Botkeeper is:

Sandra Wiley, President of Boomer Consulting — "Jody will be a tremendous asset to

Botkeeper - and our profession - as she assumes the leadership position of Vice

President of Strategy for the company. The marriage of Botkeeper and The Radical CPA

will create an amazing opportunity to blend machine learning and AI with real life

experts to bring the future of technology to our profession now!"

Samantha Bowling, CPA/CGMA/2019 Most Powerful Women in Accounting Award

Winner/Immediate Past Chair of the Maryland Association of CPAs — "This transition

is important not only for Botkeeper, but also for the entire accounting industry." Bowling

went on to say, "Jody Padar's new role as Vice President of Strategy for Botkeeper is the

position she was born to do. Her journey of moving her Father's Firm from old school

paper to paperless and automated has prepared her for this role. There is always a

resistance to technology, but if anyone can navigate our profession through this radical

age of change and innovation, it is her!" Bowling added that she'd "love to see more

companies incorporating new technology into their processes."

Jim C. Bourke, CPA/CITP/CFF/CGMA — "What a great addition to the Botkeeper team!

Jody Padar brings a uniqueness to the table that is not found in many professionals in

our space today. As the VP of Strategy, I am looking forward to her leadership role in

taking Botkeeper to the next level across our profession."

Those who work at Botkeeper employees are also very excited to join forces with Jody

so the company can better serve the accounting industry.
