Zhong Xu

Zhong Xu is the Director of Hospitality Product at Lightspeed. As a Masters in Computer Science he started his career at a young start-up, Siruna, where he gained invaluable experience in growing a start-up into an international brand and discovered his passion for mobile apps. This began his life-long goal to create a user friendly solution for the hospitality industry. Together with Jan Hollez he founded the immensely successful POSIOS which was acquired by Lightspeed in 2014. Under Zhong’s vision, Lightspeed continues to deliver innovation to hospitality businesses through its cloud-based technology.
