Alan Heyward Managing Director, Asia Pacific

Kicking off his career in banking and finance, and later running a retail travel business, Alan has always believed in the importance of a thriving workplace culture. It was his move to an employee recognition and workplace culture organisation in 2006 - now O.C. Tanner - where Alan discovered what it means to be truly inspired by, and connected to, an organisation, its people, and purpose. Prior to assuming the role of Managing Director for the Asia Pacific region, Alan gained an in-depth understanding of the business, market landscape and unique cultural needs of some of Australia’s largest organisations via a range of leadership roles encompassing sales, marketing, client service and operations, and innovation. One constant throughout each phase of his career has been his passion for galvanising his teams and leading positive change, which included spearheading the transition of ownership of the Australian business from public to private ownership under O.C. Tanner. Away from work Alan likes to keep fit, spend time with friends, and travel with his family.

Monique Wylie Finance Director, Asia Pacific

An experienced and passionate finance professional, Monique has ‘found her calling’ as Finance Director with O.C. Tanner, yet it’s a role far removed from her career beginnings. In her first chapter following high school, Monique represented Australia in athletics - a pursuit on theme for Monique, who is well known for her drive, determination, and love of a challenge. Having earned a university scholarship, Monique completed a Masters of Commerce (Accounting and Law), which led to her first corporate role in accounts. She then embarked on a 15-year career journey with Hogg Robinson Group, which took her to Canada in the role of Finance Director - North America, and then back to Australia as Finance Director - APAC. A devoted mum to an Old English Sheepdog called Gizmo, in her spare time Monique regularly visits the gym, enjoys yum cha overlooking the harbour, and treats herself to the occasional Bunnings snag while on a Sunday plant buying spree.

Giving Back

Our founder, Obert C. Tanner, measured the company’s success by asking his accountant, “What’s our giveability this month?” His intention echoes in our hearts and halls today. It’s why we donate our time to organisations in need, our effort to improve our communities, and 10% of company profits to philanthropic causes.

O.C. Tanner’s charitable strategy is to support the environment, arts, education, children, and organisations that are meaningful to its employees—all things that are important to the organisation and what it stands for.

Corporate giving includes:

The Tanner Lectures on Human Values provides an endowment gift to Oxford, Cambridge, Princeton, Harvard, Stanford, Yale, and the universities of Utah, Michigan, and University of California at Berkley. 

Our Tanner Cares program offers financial assistance to employees in times of extreme need, with the company matching employee donations dollar for dollar.

The Tanner Gift of Music gifts 44,000 complimentary tickets to a two-night concert series featuring the Utah Symphony, Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and guest soloists such as James Taylor, Brian Stokes Mitchell, and Megan Hilty.
