Previously, I was founder, president and CEO of XBI Software Inc. In that role, I was a past chair of XBRL Canada and member of the SBR (standard business reporting) Forum. I was an editor of the first Canadian GAAP PFS taxonomy, and of the International XBRL Global Ledger Taxonomy. I am an SBR and XBRL evangelist and consultant, and I have served on many XBRL working groups.
Before that, I was founder, president and CEO of Dr Tax Software Inc, a premier supplier of tax software to Canadian accountants and tax professionals, and of Dr Tax -UFile.ca Inc, the first company to create a Web-based tax preparation program in Canada. Under my vision and leadership, the Dr Tax team developed Dr Tax Software from an idea to the second-largest company in its market segment. We actualized the dream of easy, quick web-based tax preparation and led the UFile team to build the first and best Web-based tax application in Canada. The Dr Tax group has been sold to Thomson Reuters.
