Alison launched activpayroll in 2001 in Aberdeen, North East Scotland. The company is now entering its 14th year of successful business and Alison has grown it to serve more than 800 clients and operate in over 70 countries around the globe.
Alison has built one of the strongest global teams of specialists in payroll, expatriate tax and human resources. She is committed to continually strengthening her team of experts and fostering a singular team working ethos throughout the company, to synergistically share experiences, ideas and knowledge.
After growing to become the leading payroll and taxation provider of choice for firms throughout the North East of Scotland, Alison achieved rapid expansion, extending the client-centred services developed in Scotland to the rest of world; with offices in Houston, Washington, Ontario, Perth, Sydney, Singapore, Edinburgh, Paris, Stavanger and global headquarters in Aberdeen.
Alison attributes the spectacular global success of activpayroll to filling a distinct gap in the market for fully integrated payroll services, focusing on business development and relationship-building. However, anytime she is praised for her efforts and tremendous success, she states that it is all about her team and the people that have got her to where she is today.
