Meet HPC

Sam Intro Blog Post

We have years of experience in the cloud accounting industry, and have a complete solution for tax and compliance, best practices for technology and efficiencies, and outsourced accounting and growth advisory. The value in working with us is not solely our team approach, but also rests with the years of strategic partnerships we have built.

We were one of the first partners of Xero in the US, and have been a first mover on many other cloud apps. We have well over a dozen accountants in foreign countries to provide global tax and accounting advice, and have many other professional service partners to provide things such as legal, fundraising, and insurance services.

With well over 50 strategic partnerships and an appetite to find more valuable partners to help our staff and customers, it only makes sense to have a formal Director of Strategic Partnerships to constantly evaluate and nurture these relationships. Please meet Sam Thomas.


Over the last 20 years, Sam has held roles in all levels of sales, marketing, and business development with a wide range of professional service and technology firms around the globe. Sam has also spoken widely on how cloud technology is changing the delivery and capabilities of advisory services.  He is passionate about how technology is changing the delivery of accounting services and is excited to bring that knowledge and experience to HPC during an exciting time.

Sam previously worked at HPC, and after working for a business intelligence software company he has returned with plethora of ideas and energy to help HPC continue to provide the best-in-class software, advice and services.

We look forward to having Sam back on our team to help us stay on the cutting edge and ensure that we receive the support we’d expect from our partners, as it relates to providing seamless services, and the value and experience our clients deserve.
