Norman, a retired payroll consultant, was also vice chair of the BCS Payroll Specialist Group and a Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP) tutor.

 

For close to 20 years he had been contributing to the magazine and website, speaking at our conferences and judging awards programmes. He was also a member of the Reward Strategy editorial board, helping to set the agenda for content across all mediums.

 

Norman was a Reward 300 member and had been writing for Reward Strategy up until November 2019, when he decided to focus more of his time on his retirement.

 

It was a pleasure to work with Norman, he was incredibly knowledgeable, kind and was dedicated to informing the profession.

 

Much of the payroll profession has taken to social media to pay tribute to Norman. Many, if not all, have referred to him as a “payroll legend” and “a font of knowledge”. Below are some of the kind words his peers had to say.

 

Henry Tapper, chief executive of AgeWage, said: “Norman was a mentor, introducing me to many aspects of payroll and to the people whom he respected. He was kind, funny and generous and I wish him well in the place where he has gone. Bless you Norman!”

 

Neil Tonks, legislation manager at MHR, said: “Norman was a leading light when I first got involved in payroll, and I respected him greatly. He had the knack of communicating complex material in a way that made it seem very straightforward. He was also approachable and always willing to share his encyclopaedic knowledge of payroll. Norman will be greatly missed.”

 

Paul Laney, interim compensation and benefit consultant at the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts, said: “A true gentleman! I owe Norman a huge debt of gratitude for guiding my payroll career in its early stages. A very very clever man!”

 

Norman was a pillar of the payroll community and will be greatly missed.
