Mark Thompson

Mark is a management consultant with Korn Ferry (previously Hay Group), specialising in pay and reward and the development of career structures across all sectors of the Irish and UK economies. He began his consulting career in 1999 after around 15 years as an HR practitioner in various roles with the Bank of England, Volkswagen and Eircom. He has extensive experience developing pay and career structures on the basis of job family models, the design of management incentives, strategic workforce plans, and performance management processes among other things.

Mark has been based in the English Midlands for much of his career as a management consultant but has widespread international experience, including a stint as the consulting leader of the reward strategies practice in Asia, when he was based in New Delhi. For ten years before moving to India, Mark was a tutor for the CIPD, the professional body for HR practitioners. During this time, he developed and ran the general reward module of the Institute’s Certificate in Reward Management. 

He is now in the process of relocating to Dublin where he will join the Korn Ferry team to work with Irish organisations more extensively.
