Cameron Peters, CEO

Cameron has been creating software for the Canadian tax and accounting communities since 1985. Having started his first company, 'Cameron Peters Software Company' in high school, and subsequently programming his first tax software package (Cantax®), Cameron's career embarked on a successful string of companies and innovative products. He co-founded GreenPoint Software in 1995, and as CEO and chief architect, developed the ProFile® Professional Tax Software Suite that became part of Intuit Canada in 2000. After leading the Professional Tax Business at Intuit Canada for a few years, he became the Director, Consumer Tax in Intuit U.K. launching his third tax software architecture. In 2005, he returned to Canada as the CTO of Intuit Canada & U.K., leading over 250 development and support staff and helping take the QuickBooks® product from 41% to 60% retail market share. Since leaving Intuit, Cameron has been slowly but surely working towards defining the future of accounting tax services; Trilogy is the culmination of his efforts thus far.
