Session Information

René founded Bill.com in August 2006, bringing with him more than 20 years experience in the finance, software and payments industries. As a fourth generation entrepreneur, René developed the concept for Bill.com based on personal experience growing up in multiple businesses as a kid and then co-founding his first company, PayCycle, in 1999. As the CEO of PayCycle, he recognized the need to improve the lives of business owners by simplifying the doing in business.  Bill.com simplifies, consolidates and automates all the critical data and transaction capability into a personalized cloud dashboard that works for all businesses.

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 into 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 Rene likes to bike and ski with his boys, play ultimate Frisbee, run, and bake. What excites Rene most about Bill.com is the idea of simplifying the doing in business, allowing businesses to streamline the way they make decisions and take action.
