One firm, two top 50 most influential people in payroll

Armstrong Watson is celebrating after two of its Payroll team members have been named by the national publication Payroll World as being within the top 50 most influential people in the industry.

It is the only financial services firm to have more than one individual on the list, including top four firms such as Deloitte and PWC.

Karen Thomson, Director of Payroll and Suzanne Gallagher, Head of Payroll Operations have both been named in the list of 2016 names.

The Payroll Top 50 recognises the leading professionals who have had a positive impact on the payroll industry in the past year.

Karen Thomson comments:

‘I’m delighted to have been named to be amongst some of the most influential individuals in the payroll industry again this year. My passion is payroll and it’s fantastic to be named amongst other very high profile individuals including Ros Altman, Pensions Minister and Neil Esslemont from The Pensions Regulator. I will continue to approach my work within the industry with passion and strive to help shape policy, advise and speak up on behalf of employers.’

Suzanne Gallagher comments:

‘It’s a wonderful achievement to be included on the Top 50 list. Working in Payroll throughout my career, recognition for the influence my work has on the industry is something to be very proud of. It’s great that we have two people from Armstrong Watson on this list. I think that shows we have very unique expertise and experience within the firm, which enables us to better support our clients. It’s this personal relationship with our clients which makes us stand out from the larger firms.’
