Profile on Chris Fahey

Chris has worked for some of the biggest names in the industry in his 17 years in the payroll sector. He is widely respected in the industry, working in partnership with agencies and helping them with everything from day-to-day queries to legislation changes and everything in between.

Chris joined Azure Global in November 2019 to help grow our UK business and within his first month, he secured a deal that would transform the business from a UK-only payroll company to an international HR Solutions provider.

Azure Global now has projects in Canada, Poland, Czech Republic, UAE, Ireland as well as the UK and the US. Chris has found that many agencies also have overseas interests and are keen to partner with a company that can operate compliantly in the UK and also abroad.

Outside work, Chris was a professional goalkeeper for 17 years, playing for Raith Rovers, Stenhousemuir, Albion Rovers and Stranraer. When he retired, he started up his own kids’ goalkeeping school and went into Clyde FC as their Goalkeeper Coach.  Chris has a wife Lindsey and three kids Chloe, Lola and Ayden that all keep him on his toes.
