Austin, Texas, September 20th — Ignition CEO and Co-Founder, and ex-accounting firm owner Guy Pearson today launched a new interview series 'Reconciling SaaS' for forward-thinking accountants that aspire to build high-growth, high-profit firms.

"If you are an accountant looking to build a high-growth and high-profit accounting firm and are interested in learning about new technologies, business models, trends, and growth strategies, you'll want to hear from these changemakers in the industry," says Guy Pearson, CEO of Ignition.

Guy founded Interactive Accounting (a progressive accounting firm now known as Scendar) in 2009, before stepping away to focus on co-founding Ignition (formerly known as Practice Ignition) in 2013. With over 25 years in the accounting industry, Guy is embarking on this interview series to showcase others and have open conversations about some of the challenges the accounting industry still faces. These conversations can fast-track firm growth by highlighting those driving significant change, efficiencies, and as a result, success so that others in the accounting, tax, and bookkeeping industry can learn and apply.

Gareth discusses why he moved from a traditional accounting firm to Interactive Accounting, key hires to make in the early days of your accounting firm, and his move into advisory services.
