IFS strengthens Executive Leadership Team to build on growth momentum


London, UK, January 10, 2022 – IFS, the global cloud enterprise software company, today announces the appointment of Kate Bishop as Chief Human Resources Officer. In her role, Bishop will ensure that all aspects of IFS’s HR strategy are future-focused and support the company’s growth plans. Bishop joins the IFS Executive Leadership Team in a period of strong organic and inorganic growth and will continue to drive alignment of the HR function to the global business strategy.


As well as focusing on all aspects of the employee lifecycle and shaping the company’s vision for diversity and inclusion, Bishop will steer the people strategy to support Merger and Acquisition activities and ensure that IFS continues to deliver amazing Moments of Service™ to its current and future employees and, ultimately, to customers.

This goes beyond job roles and salaries and is about listening to our people, encouraging a growth mindset and showing the IFS will invest to help people grow and thrive.”
