Meet our team

Martin Gleeson

Founder - Managing Director


In the early 2000s, when most people were using dial-up modems, Martin saw the potential of the Internet. He realised it would allow developers to build cloud-based payroll and HR services cost effectively for small and medium businesses. So, with a couple of developers, he set to work on a solution, building on his experience of providing online payroll solutions for large organisations and government departments.

Today, iPayroll has around 70 employees and over 7,000 customers on both sides of the Tasman. Martin and iPayroll continue to innovate with the latest technologies, apps, and tools, to give customers excellent experience, and reliable and secure payrolls.

Martin completed an MBA at Otago University. He enjoys boating, fishing, golf, snooker, rugby, and travel and is regularly seen at international sporting events throughout the world.
