Business Development group becomes first in Illinois to reach gold distinction.

Illinois-based business development company Kahuna Business Group (Kahuna Group) with newly launched Kahuna Accounting, is proud to be recognized as a Gold Partner with Xero, the global leader in online accounting software.

Founded in 1995, Kahuna’s specific focus is entrepreneurship and business development. Since 2005, Kahuna has incubated and developed more than 20 companies providing professional managed services including accounting and payroll. Kahuna Accounting launched in 2013 with a mission to expand established accounting services to small businesses across the nation.

Initially limited by traditional accounting software, Kahuna Accounting truly took shape after discovering the power and beauty of Xero’s cloud-based accounting platform. With real-time, collaborative software, Kahuna Accounting now serves businesses from California to New York and has become Xero’s first Gold Partner in Illinois.

“It is thrilling to achieve Gold Partner status with Xero,” said Kahuna Accounting Manager Carin Weiss-Krolikowski. “We did extensive research for online accounting tools to expand our services evaluating everything on the market from old school to brand new. After discovering Xero, putting them to the test and then realizing the efficiency it allowed us to provide to our clients and their advisors, we knew we had the perfect fit. Xero is a major part of our success story by being mobile, easy to use for business owners and actually fun to work in.”

“Xero is excited to recognize Kahuna Accounting as a Gold Partner,” said Jamie Sutherland, President of Xero U.S. “In the world of traditional accounting, Kahuna is certainly unique with a strong history in supporting entrepreneurs. We look forward to Kahuna’s continued contribution within the Xero community.”
