Beric Farmer co-founded XE in 1993 with his childhood friend Steven Dengler. A year and half later, the XE currency calculator was born. Today, the XE.com web site attracts over 23 million monthly unique visitors and the XE Currency app has been downloaded over 60 million times.
Beric has played a key role in all aspects of the growth of XE as it evolved from a two person start-up to become the World’s Trusted Currency Authority and was subsequently acquired by Euronet Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ:EEFT) in 2015.
With technology as his primary focus, Beric served as president of XE for over 20 years and is now focusing on research and development in his continuing role as Co-Founder.
Beric earned his bachelor’s degree in mathematics with a concentration in computer science from the University of Waterloo, in Ontario, Canada (before it was cool).
