The technology behind eFiling started life in the company formation sector in 2002, as the online platform behind the company registration agent Quick Formations that won a number of awards for Innovation in Technology. In January 2008 that technology was transferred into a new company, eFiling, to independently bring it to market. A few years later the company Quick Formations was sold to enable the management team to solely focus on the technology without any conflicts of interest.
The Entrepreneur, Richard Osborne
, is the Managing Director of eFiling. He started Quick Formations and subsequently launched eFiling in 2008. Having grown from scratch and then sold one of the industry's most prominent formation agents; he brings with him the industry knowledge instrumental to the ongoing evolution of eFiling. Richard is also no stranger to developing online platforms, having developed and sold one of the UK's largest domain name registration and reseller platforms in the late 1990's. Richard has occasionally been known to engage on Twitter @RichardOsborne
In March 2014 eFiling gained two new non-executive board members who bring with them valuable strengths to continue to drive eFiling forward as a powerful platform for the industry. They share the same vision and values for the company that has brought eFiling to where it is so far and look forward to an exciting future going forward.
is the Chairman of the eFiling board. He was one of the founders of Sift in 1996 and became the CEO in 2002. He launched AccountingWEB in 1997, now one of the largest online professional publishing businesses, and has been involved in launching all Sift's businesses since then. This has given him a wide range of experience launching products, raising money, recruiting teams, managing staff and digital marketing. He’s also had to make the difficult transition from founder to CEO. In the latter role, he’s guided Sift through two protracted industry down-turns, whilst maintaining the company’s growth.
