Duncan Macintosh leads MSI’s GEO Services (Global Employer Organization) and is co-founder of ShieldGEO. He has experience in providing organizations with management solutions around the world. These include outsourced payroll, PEO, contractor management, work permit, taxation, human resource, co-employment, employee leasing, and taxation services.
He has over 13 years’ experience in this field, beginning in Sydney, Australia as a staff member of a local Australian organization and then moving to London as a business development director of a UK-based management company. In his current role as a director of Contractor Taxation, he has taken his localized knowledge and expanded it to a global market. He worked initially with IT and telecommunications professionals and organizations in the Australian and the UK markets and now works across the IT, telco, finance, engineering, and oil & gas industries around the globe. Contractor Taxation currently has clients in Europe, Africa, North and South America, Asia, and Australasia.
Duncan believes that as the world becomes ever more global and the movement of labor across borders increasingly common, organizations require companies that can make the process simpler and more manageable. He understands that this is a difficult task, and that sourcing clear, simple advice and solutions in each country is of paramount importance. Over the years, his experience with a range of suppliers demonstrated that those providing expert advice and solutions in each specific country were worth their weight in gold. This led him to set up Contractor Taxation, with co-founder Tim Burgess, to provide a single point of contact for companies wishing to access the best providers in each country.
Duncan is responsible for international business development, sales, marketing, and client and partner management. He and his team deal with inquiries from our clients by phone, email, and through our Web chat service. His role is to liaise with corporate clients to provide detailed solutions, information, advice, and quotes best suited to their needs. Duncan interfaces and manages both the initial consultation and proposal for the client, as well as the relationship with the local service provider. His team maintains a customer services relationship with all parties for the duration of the project.
