activpayroll, the global payroll and tax compliance specialist headquartered in Aberdeen, Scotland has announced the launch of its second French office in the city of Orléans.

The new opening marks activpayroll’s second office in France and will serve as an accompanying hub to activpayroll’s existing office located in Paris. The new office will allow activpayroll to continue to support existing and new French domestic customers, in addition to supporting international customers with French based operations and employees.

activpayroll has been providing payroll services to customers in France for over two decades and this expansion reinforces activpayroll’s ongoing expansion and commitment to the French customer base.  In addition to payroll services, the activpayroll operations team in France provide specialist French HR and Global Mobility services. 

The new team will be led by Mallek Mohamed, Payroll Operations Manager – France.  Mallek has over 15 years’ experience working in the HR and payroll sector in France and has held multiple positions ranging from HR Manager of an international organization to Project Director.  Having worked for both medium and large-sized organisations, Mallek brings a wealth of knowledge to the team.

Mallek has supported activpayroll in France since the initial establishment of the activpayroll Paris office and will continue to support the team in Paris, working closely with General Manager Agnes Feige, in addition to developing the Orléans operation.

Euan Sellar, Chief Operating Officer of activpayroll, said: “I am delighted to finally share the news of our second operations base in France, this is an exciting development for activpayroll and exemplifies the commitment to our in-country team and French customers.  France is a strategic focal point for many global businesses and having an additional presence in France will enable us to not only enhance our level of payroll support to customers, but also allow us to offer them our additional services, including our recently launched Global HR Services.”

Mallek Mohamed, Payroll Operations Manager – France, added: “I am really pleased to be further expanding the activpayroll brand across France and heading up the Orléans office.  A lot of hard work and commitment has been put into this and I am extremely appreciative and proud to be heading up the new office and playing a part in activpayroll’s continual global expansion”.
