Session Information

René founded Bill.com in August 2006, bringing more than 20 years experience in finance, software and payments industries.  A fourth generation entrepreneur, René developed the Bill.com concept based on personal experience.  As CEO of his first startup, PayCycle, he recognized there had to be a simpler way for companies to connect and do business.  He started Bill.com to bring digital payments to all businesses -- simplifying, automating, and organizing back-office financial work.

Prior to Bill.com, René co-founded America's #1 online payroll service, PayCycle, which was later acquired by Intuit. Under René's leadership, 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.

Early in his career, René spent five years at Intuit, creating and managing the company's bill presentment team and growing its bill payment and credit card businesses into a multi-million dollar business. He also launched Intuit's first connected payroll product, growing the team from two employees to 300 in 18 months.

In his spare time, René likes to bike, hike and ski with his family.  He also enjoys ultimate Frisbee, running and baking. 

What excites René most about Bill.com is that the service helps business owners and managers simplify all the “doing” in business, so that they can focus on more important tasks or better yet, get more personal time.
