René founded Bill.com in April 2006, bringing with him more than 20 years experience in the finance, software and payments industries. Built from a legacy of four generations of entrepreneurs, René developed the concept for Bill.com based on personal experience growing new businesses.
René and his Bill.com team have taken the traditional Excel spreadsheet used to track cash flow and turned it into an Action Hero. Imagine that each line item is now web-enabled to take action backed up with the insight needed to instantly make the right decision for your business.
Prior to Bill.com, René co-founded America's #1 online payroll service PayCycle in 1999, which was acquired by Intuit in 2009. PayCycle received numerous 5-star awards from PC Magazine and accounting trade publications. At PayCycle, René developed an industry leading customer service organization that provided an unparalleled customer experience.
René spent five years at Intuit, creating and managing the company's bill presentment team and growing its bill payment and credit card businesses 30% in one year. He also launched Intuit's first connected payroll product, growing the team from two employees to 300 in 18 months.
René received a Masters of Science degree in Industrial Engineering and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Quantitative Economics from Stanford University.
In his spare time Rene likes to throw his two boys in the air, play ultimate Frisbee, run, bike and bake. What excites Rene most about Bill.com is the idea of replacing the static Excel spreadsheet allowing businesses to streamline the way they make decisions and take action.
