Their appointment to Board of Directors follows on from the €1million investment in the company by Enterprise Ireland and leading Tech investors, Frontline Ventures, Tribal VC and HBAN Bloom Equity & WxNW, in February 2018.
Founder and CEO, Fidelma McGuirk comments on the new appointment,
“We are delighted that Sonia and Andrew have joined the Payslip’s Board of Directors. They have a wealth of experience and knowledge in the global technology space and will contribute great insight and vision to Payslip and our delivery to our multi-national employer clients.”
Sonia is well versed in the technology sector having worked with internet technology giants Facebook, Google and Soundcloud. As Managing Director of Facebook’s international headquarters in Dublin, Sonia led a team of over 1,000 employees across multiple functions within the company. Prior to this, Sonia spent 5 years at Google where she held several senior management positions in sales and operations as a member of the management team that established Google’s EMEA headquarters in Ireland.
Sonia acts as an advisor to TELUS International (a subsidiary of TELUS, a national telecommunications company in Canada) and Voxpro (outsource CX partner to some of the world’s most iconic brands such as Airbnb and Google).
Andrew White, Business Angel at HBAN and Bloom Equity, is a seasoned business leader and technology executive with over 30 years experience helping organizations around the world achieve results by leveraging technology solutions.
During his career, Andrew has gained in-depth experience of all aspects of managing a technology services business at European and global scale. He was a founding shareholder and member of the executive team at Avanade that scaled the business from a start up in 2000 to a $2 billion global technology services company with more than 25,000 professionals by 2015.
Prior to joining Avanade, Andrew worked his way up through the ranks to equity partnership at Accenture, where he held leadership positions in Justice & Public Safety, Business Change and Logistics in addition to his client leadership responsibilities in Consumer Products and Public Service.
Fidelma also said “Since our launch in 2017, Payslip has already delivered an alternative delivery model for global payroll to leading multi-national companies giving them oversight of their global payroll process and provider network while providing global payroll data protection in line with GDPR. With their depth and breadth of experience leading and growing global technology companies, I look forward to working with Andrew and Sonia to increase the traction within the technology, engineering and traditional verticals.”
