Velocity Global appoints ADP veteran Jim Birch to modernize International PEO payroll

Velocity Global

Velocity Global, the leading provider of global expansion solutions, today announced global payroll veteran, Jim Birch, as vice president of Global Payroll and Product Strategy. Birch joins Velocity Global to lead cutting-edge strategies to streamline Employer of Record payroll execution for midmarket and enterprise clients. Birch joins Velocity Global from ADP, a leader in global payroll solutions, where he led product management and the user experience for automated payroll processes across ADP’s Streamline-Celergo multicountry payroll services. For a decade prior, Birch grew operations at Celergo before ADP acquired it in 2018. “Jim applies his world class know-how to scale global payroll operations for our clients,” said José Montero, Velocity Global chief operating officer. “For an Employer of Record, global payroll requires intricate coordination with clients and their HR platforms. As remote teams drive the largest workforce shift in recent memory, Jim will connect our payroll operations with backend name-brand payroll platforms for our clients, and make our solutions more accessible to enterprises.” Clients rely on Velocity Global’s expertise and global infrastructure to hire internationally without the cost or complexity of setting up their own foreign legal entities. As a strategic partner offering International Professional Employer Organization (PEO) services, Velocity Global serves as an employer of record to manage in-country compliance, payroll, and benefits for its clients’ supported employees. “Payroll is equivalent to the last-mile delivery of a paycheck -- it must be frictionless for the employer and the supported employee,” said Birch. “Today, the International PEO model mainly serves growth companies as they expand globally with speed and limited investment. I am energized to scale our global payroll operations to connect with enterprise platforms as corporations seek that same flexibility.” For 15 years, Birch led and integrated global payroll processes; led IT network, software development, and product management; and managed client services and a global network of payroll providers. He held international assignments serving as managing director of Celergo’s London, Singapore & Hungary regional offices. Jim will report to Velocity Global’s Chief Operating Officer, José Montero.

Last Minute Gift Ideas from Anna De Souza


The holidays are here and everyone is scrambling to make sure they’re ready. Recently, Tech and Lifestyle Expert, Anna De Souza, teamed with YourUpdateTV to discuss some of her favorite gift options this holiday season. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: Treating Loved Ones…and Yourself After a long year, everyone could use some pampering and that means taking care of our skin, especially those areas we typically forget, like the neck and décolleté. The Strivectin Uplifing Wonder Duo includes a full size version of the #1 selling cream exclusively for the neck and décolleté, TL Advanced Tightening Neck Cream PLUS, clinically proven to visibly brighten and improve wrinkles and crepiness. It also includes the new Peptight 360° Tightening Eye Serum, which targets loss of contour and crepey skin, as well as sagging of the upper eyelids. Give the Gift of Good Sleep In a year unlike any other there’s been a rise in the number of people experiencing disrupted sleep, in fact, Google searches for ‘what to do when you can’t sleep’ are up 120%. Good sleep is the foundation for good health and This Works, has hand-selected their star sleep aids into a luxurious gifting collection, designed to help you switch off, for better sleep. Each set is infused with their signature sleep Superblend – a blend of essential oils from calming Lavender to soothing Vetivert and sleep-inducing Chamomile – proven to help you fall asleep faster and wake feeling more refreshed. Gift Experiences People are traveling less for the holidays, and may have not made it to the places they love to vacation this year. Here’s a great idea to bring ‘a little bit of the beach’ to that special family, friend or colleague. Topsail Steamer is the fun you’ll want to gift up this season. Their Bay Buckets are filled with wild-caught seafood from the NC coast, andouille sausage & fresh veggies and arrive in a single-use, fully recyclable pot, you just add water or your favorite beer or wine then cook it directly on your stovetop. In just 45 minutes you have an authentic coastal seafood feast, without all the sand in your sandals. Everything is included, even the brown paper to spread out on the table. Their seasonal offerings now include holiday bundles that include cornbread and pie, too! Update Your Fitness Routine The six-in-one kettlebell from JAXJOX, the KettlebellConnect 2.0, is part resistance training system, part digital coach. It really feels like you’re exercising in the future.
