Within the IPM Senior Management Team of four, we boast over 100 years worth of combined experience in Expatriate Taxation, International Payroll and Global Mobility management.Our people have been recruited from global mobility, international payroll, expatriate tax and pensions backgrounds. This knowledge supports IPM's compensation offering by giving us subject matter expertise in tax and social security as it impacts internationally mobile personnel and the resulting payroll requirements. As well as recruiting this relevant expertise, we also develop our own Global Mobility Consultants by bringing them in at Associate level and training them up through our procedures and service offerings.
Alan joined the IPM team in 2004 as Managing Director. His main focus is to help Global Mobility professionals to develop and implement a seamless process for transferring their assignees between countries, ensuring compliance at all times. He is highly experienced in HR at a senior level with HSBC and Thomas Cook, including international and executive compensation for local nationals, expatriates, and third country nationals.
Where Alan adds real value to our Clients (and what makes IPM very different), is that he creates a culture and connection where IPM become a natural extension to the in-house HR teams. We value the relationships we have with our clients, and recruit a team with the same vision and passion to build strong, long-lasting partnerships.
His role as MD is to ensure we provide a flexible outsourced service that delivers cost savings, legal compliance, and peace of mind to Clients. Through continuous improvement of our systems and processes we ensure your HR team are benefitting from time and cost efficiencies, and receive a very personal and responsive service from our highly competent team of experts. This almost inevitably leads to long-lasting relationships that ensure your company is fully compliant, and your assignees and their families arrive at their new destination relaxed, prepared, and ‘ready to go’.
Anna is our Compliance Director, (as well as being a qualified UK Payroll Manager having managed UK and expatriate payroll). She has been with us since 2003, and is affectionately known as our ‘Evil Genius’, because of her attention to detail and diligence in knowing and satisfying the latest mobility legislation.
Anna provides exceptional advice and support to HR Directors. By ensuring consistency, compliance and accuracy in our client’s Global Mobility programmes, Anna demonstrates a genuine understanding of our clients’ needs, and provides pragmatic and valued support in the day-to-day management. She has built long-standing relationships with our clients which helps deliver successful assignments with happy and satisfied assignees.
She is responsible for the operational delivery of services across a number of clients. Anna has an impressive background working in international payroll for over 20 years. 10 years spent working in-house for Nokia, managing their large assignment programme, and the last 12 years with us assisting with all relocation aspects. Anna shows a real passion in delivering services to our clients, and gives exceptional support to client teams to ensure they have happy assignees.
