Clare is a qualified bookkeeper and has owned her bookkeeping and payroll practice for 14 years.  Clare has successfully grown her business, particularly in the past five years, now employing six staff members.  Clare has mainly concentrated her business growth over the last 12 months on the payroll side and currently also operates as a bureau looking after accountancy firms.  This growth inspired Clare to look more thoroughly at payroll software alternatives to help shape the business model and future of the payroll bureau service of her business.   Finding nothing entirely suitable for her business needs is what secured her involvement in FreshPay.

Joe Mawby

Head of Business Development

Having worked with numerous startups over the years, Joe has joined the FreshPay team to focus on both growing the business and ensuring that we’re offering the best customer success for clients. As the tallest of the FreshPay team, you’ll spot him in a crowd at networking events and accountancy exhibitions but don’t let the height intimidate you, he’s always got time for a chat!

Based up in Liverpool, you’ll rarely find Joe sat down. Climbing, running, cycling or canoe polo, are just some of the hobbies that make him tick but on the occasion that you do find him taking a rest, he’ll most likely be spending it sipping on a coffee with his pup, Leila.
