Meet The FreshBooks Team
Mike McDermentCEO (Co-Founder)
Mike is the co-founder and CEO of FreshBooks, the world’s #1 cloud accounting software for self-employed professionals. Built in 2003 after he accidentally saved over an invoice, Mike spent 3.5 years growing FreshBooks from his parents’ basement. Since then, over 10 million people have used FreshBooks to save time billing, and collect billions of dollars. A lover of the outdoors, Mike has been bitten so many times it’s rumoured he’s the first human to have developed immunity to mosquitoes.

Michael WashinushiChief Financial Officer
Consummate finance guy at work and home. I enjoy building back of the napkin financial models or spreadsheets on everything. Life outside of excel consists of family with a great wife and two energetic kids, travel, cycling, skiing and jogging. Striving towards objectives, teamwork, having fun and lots of informal / formal communication is part of my daily regimen.
Oliver FisherVP, Engineering
Oliver leads the FreshBooks technical organization that turns dreams into reality. His mission is to help develop a world-class engineering organization building a world-class product. In previous lives Oliver spent time at Microsoft, Google and Shopify. He loves skiing, British crime fiction, EDM and his wife and three kids (not in that order).
Bart MolendaVP, Marketing
A quintessential marketing guy who wore trendy, although cliche, glasses that marketing guys wear until getting Lasik. Bart spent time leading marketing at Kijiji, eBay, and Square in San Francisco and is interested in growth. He’s a self proclaimed petrol-head, tech geek, tinkerer, and father of two young girls.
Adam BatesVP, Product
Adam has built a career around envisioning and creating experiences that transform how we live and work, including stops at Amazon, Paychex, Topspin Media, and Musicmatch. In his happy place building and inspiring high-velocity teams that champion customer insight, continuous innovation, and high standards. Also in his happy place strapping a board to his feet in high snowy places, A/B testing craft cocktail recipes on his wife and friends, and trying desperately to finish the ‘summer’ treehouse project for his daughter.
