Vice President of Strategy & Corporate Development

Adam Byerly

As Vice President of Strategy and Corporate Development, I lead a talented group of individuals that are responsible for driving the company’s mergers and acquisitions (M&A), business development, and corporate-level strategic initiatives. Prior to joining Paylocity in 2019, I worked for Morgan Stanley and Bank of America, gaining experience through several roles that spanned M&A, corporate finance, capital markets, regulatory risk management, and operations research.

I graduated from The Pennsylvania State University with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering and earned a Master of Business Administration with high honors from the University of Chicago (Booth). I currently live in the Charlotte metro area, and when I’m not working, I enjoy exploring the nearby beaches and mountains with my wife and three children.

“A key factor that brought me to Paylocity was the company’s focus on people and culture, as well as growth and business success. This provides an environment where our employees are motivated to bring the best version of themselves every day to drive differentiated outcomes for our clients.”
