View LinkedIn Profile

Stewart joined Dataplan way back in 1996 when Dataplan Payroll was owned by Accountants Forrester Boyd and he was a mere boy!

He worked his way up to the position of Operations Director and took on the role of being our Operational lead following the acquisition by IRIS in 2021.

Stewart continues to drive the business forward as he focusses on the long-term strategy for the company including the development of new products and services to meet the needs of our clients. He is extremely focused on efficiency and making best use of technology to do the ‘heavy lifting’ of payroll and pension management. Stewart’s claim to fame is that he once had a drink with the late Cilla Black and Dale Winton at a charity event in London. He is also a bit of an 80’s geek; a Steps superfan and his favourite films include The Goonies, Indiana Jones and Back to the Future.

Superpower - Laser death ray.

A force to be reckoned with Stewart uses his superpowers to “Clean up the payroll industry, one dodgy provider at a time”
