With a focus on strengthening our APAC region, this expansion will allow Zalaris to provide local support to our customers, cementing our position as a global leader for HR & Payroll technology and services. The decision to create local entities within these regions was made after extensive market research showing a strong buyers-market for local HR & Payroll products and services that Zalaris’ strong value proposition is ideally suited towards.
Leading the expansion across our APAC region is Mike Ellis, who joins Zalaris as the EVP of APAC & Group Head SF Packages, having 22 years of experience in the Payroll & HCM outsourcing and consulting industry. He has worked with 2 major BPO providers in the APAC region and more recently was a co-founder of one of the leading Cloud HCM partners in the region.
Mike Ellis, EVP APAC & Group Head SF Packages: "Zalaris’ customer centric focus is a real game changer. Our unique approach to ensuring strong local service and experience, underpinned by great technology and an amazing global team is a key differentiator for us. The APAC region is an extremely diverse market with complex payroll requirements, having a solution to help grow our customers talent and meet these needs is a passion of mine."
Hans-Petter Mellerud, CEO and founder: "Being the global leader in the Payroll and HCM market is a north star for our organisation. Enabling customers in the APAC region to experience the same class leading service we provide our customers in Europe is a key driver for expanding our reach in the region. Mike Ellis is a strong leader in the region with strong relationships and knowledge of the local market. We are delighted by Mike joining #teamZalaris and the Zalaris Group Management. Along with leading the APAC expansion, Mike will also further expand our strong SAP SuccessFactors packages across the group."
