Financial services provider myprosperity has announced that Melanie Power will be taking on a part-time consulting role to help build on the company’s bookkeeper program.
Ms Power, who is the co-founder of The Revolutionary Firm, was previously head of bookkeeping at Xero, and will be looking at expanding the program’s role in connecting bookkeepers and accountants.
Established 12 months ago, myprosperity’s bookkeeper program allows bookkeepers to be listed on its directory and connect with other accounting and financial planning partners.
Welcoming the move, Ms Power said she was excited to be working once again with myprosperity chief executive Chris Ridd, during his tenure as managing director at Xero from 2011 to 2016.
“I’m delighted Mel is coming on board to help us accelerate the Bookkeeper Program,” added Mr Ridd.
“Xero transformed the relationship between small business owner and adviser by creating a shared data platform. myprosperity takes this principle and applies it to the individual or household. We see bookkeepers as a crucial part of this transformation and are very excited to be working with Mel on making this a reality.”
