Written by Caitlin Williams

Melbourne, 12 December 2016: Astute Payroll is pleased to announce the appointment of Marcus Webb as their new CEO.

Marcus assumed responsibilities in early November 2016 succeeding former CEO Nicholas Beames, who stepped down to pursue alternative career and business opportunities.

Marcus co-founded the technology division of Astute Payroll in 2009, and has been instrumental in evolving the business from its origins as a Recruitment Agency and Managed Payroll Bureau into a leading provider of Workforce Management software for the Recruitment Industry.

During this time, Marcus has been responsible for the Development, Client Services, and Sales divisions within the business.

“Marcus is a strong innovator, who has the vision, strategy and track record to ensure the company delivers business results, while at the same time guaranteeing that both existing and new customers receive optimal solutions for their needs”, said Peter Kazacos, Chairman of Astute Payroll. “The Board determined Marcus’ strong product management background and extensive leadership in the technology space made him the ideal person to oversee the implementation of Astute’s innovation and growth strategy”.

Astute provides a complete back office solution for the recruitment industry, including onboarding, timesheets, expenses, leave, pay interpretation, payroll, and invoicing. The business is rapidly expanding through its focus on customer engagement, sales and product development.

“I would like to thank Nick for his contribution to the business. He helped lay an incredible foundation, and his leadership, energy and humour will be sorely missed,” says Marcus. “I am proud to continue to build on this with the fantastic team here at Astute. We have an amazing product, and strong partnerships with our clients and other providers in the industry. We are focused on driving innovation to ensure we continue to deliver the best outcomes for our clients.”
