Vice President, Sales

Chris Stratton

I joined Paylocity in January of 2019 as the Regional Vice President of Sales for the East, leading that team to top performance the following year. I’m proud that those markets continue to see quality expansion and continued success that has opened many doors for others to advance their careers. Today, as Vice President of Sales, I oversee our entire Major Markets Sales organization, and our Channel Success team, working closely with nearly every functional area to support our go-to-market efforts and long-term growth strategy. We’re focused on delivering great support and experiences for our employees, prospects, clients, and partners. I strongly believe that engaged and motivated employees deliver exceptional levels of service to our clients, along with tremendous results that typically exceed our business objectives.

I’ve had the pleasure of working at a few world-class organizations in my professional life and lean on that diverse experience each and every day. My childhood upbringing as an “Army brat” also taught me how to adapt to new surroundings, foreign cultures, and different types of individuals at a very rapid pace. As a kid, I attended nine different schools during my K-12 years, but eventually found my home in Athens, GA. I attended the University of Georgia and graduated from the Terry College of Business. When I’m not doing what I love at Paylocity, you can find me cheering on my two daughters, Audrey and Abigail, at an Atlanta-area tennis court, or on Lake Lanier enjoying a peaceful sunset with my wife, Irma.

“I wake up every day focused on how to help my broader team capitalize on the opportunity that Paylocity affords them. Building a fun work environment, centered around our people being equipped with great tools to share the Paylocity story, is at the core of what we do. Dynamic leaders with motivated teams deliver great results. Therefore we’ll remain focused on keeping Paylocity the premier destination for employees and clients alike, and the rest will take care of itself.”
