David Edgar, The Payroll Pathways Consultancy   

David Edgar, Director and Owner, The Payroll Pathways Consultancy



I am an experienced senior consultant in the field of national and global Payroll and HR systems, focusing on: review of payroll organisation, systems and processes; integration with HR; insourcing v outsourcing; strategy and solution development; system and supplier selection including RFP and contracting; and implementation management.

I have more than 18 years’ experience in a consultancy role in this field, with about half this time spent working independently and half spent as a senior consult in HR and Payroll Transformation with IBM, TCS Ltd and a smaller niche consultancy. My consultancy career is underpinned by a strong prior career background with Esso Petroleum UK in payroll management and the provision and strategic management of Payroll and HR systems.
