Online accounting software company Intuit, the maker of QuickBooks, has appointed its first Country Manager and Managing Director for Australia to lead what it says is its “rapidly expanding” presence in the Australian market.

Nicolette Maury, most recently director of strategy and customer programs at eBay, has been appointed to the newly created dual position.

The US-based Intuit split early last year with Australian accounting software provider, Reckon, over use of the QuickBooks brand, and has since been ramping up its operation in the increasingly competitive Australian-New Zealand regional market for online accounting software.

In September last year the company launched its next-generation Quickbooks Online platform, which it said was its  “biggest release in decades” after a complete rebuild of Quickbooks.

Brad Paterson, Intuit’s Vice President and Managing Director for Asia-Pacific said Intuit’s fast-growing sales, marketing and customer care team, is expected to “double in size this year to meet strong demand from Australian small businesses, accountants, bookkeepers and partners.”

“Nicolette is a high-achieving, multi-faceted executive who has the capability to broaden Intuit’s reach and depth of customer experience. She is a great asset for our growing Australian operation.”

Maury has a Bachelor of Science degree in industrial chemistry from the University of New South Wales (Sydney) and is currently studying part time for an MBA through the Australian Graduate School of Management.

In 2013, Maury won an AFR Boss Young Executive of the Year award and before joining eBay in 2006, she was a strategy consultant with the Boston Consulting Group where she helped grow the customer base of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.
