About Payday

Grounded. Humble. Committed.

How we got here and where we’re going

In early 2010, Dave Fried and Danny Kline met at an industry conference and immediately became friends. Dave was leading TricoreHCM, one of the most recognized human capital management firms in the mid-Atlantic. Danny was running Payday Payroll, one of the nation’s most respected independent payroll providers. Over the years, Dave and Danny found synergies within each others’ companies, and it wasn’t long before their teams were working together daily.

Dave and Danny’s vision, ethics, and respective businesses seamlessly aligned, driving mutual growth and resounding client success.

The natural next step was clear: a merger.

In early 2020, the two brands united under the Payday name to offer a comprehensive suite of services to their clients.

Today, under Danny and Dave’s stewardship, the company is focused on the future, attracting outstanding talent, thoughtfully growing the firm and developing new strategies and product offerings for tomorrow’s modern businesses.

I have been with Payday since 2009 and continue to be impressed with the care and expertise with which everyone at Payday handles my account. No matter who answers the phone, they know who I am and how to help. They respect my time and business; I appreciate that.
