James McHugh, CPA


My name is James and I was born and raised in London, Ontario.

I completed my post-secondary education at the University of Guelph to obtain a Bachelor of Commerce with a Major in Accounting. I began my career at a small accounting firm where my responsibilities included year-end compilations, review engagements, personal and corporate tax returns. I realized something wasn’t right when I was printing hundreds of pages every week.

This brought me to Xen Accounting. Technology is changing the way we live our lives. Xen is focused on paperless accounting and cloud-based accounting apps. This is something that I need to be a part of as I believe cloud-based accounting is the future.

I just wrote the September 2021 CFE, and I hope to receive my CPA designation in the near future.

In my spare time, I can often be seen enjoying activities such as hockey or golf. I am also a big fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
