About Us


Industry Leading HCM Technology. Unmatched Personal Service.

Our Story


In 1989, Apex HCM’s founder and CEO, Stephen W. Gregg, began a quest to build an industry leading payroll services technology platform while simultaneously providing unmatched personal service. Having founded and run a successful payroll, timekeeping and services technology firm, Stephen noticed that most payroll service bureau technology firms operated legacy systems with outdated databases, outdated architecture and little ability to scale or migrate to the cloud. Stephen knew that for payroll service bureau owners to remain successful long-term, they needed new solutions, cloud technology, and much better customer service.

Today, with nearly 30 years of experience, Apex stands as the industry leader in combining technology and personal service to streamline payroll and other workforce management processes. We provide unparalleled local service, on a national scale, coupled with a powerful portfolio of scalable technology products. This unique approach, allows our customers to provide the products and services of a large Human Capital Management company with the personal service of a local office. With over 250 offices throughout the United States and Guam, thousands of small, medium and enterprise businesses count on our cloud-based technology and extensive suite of Payroll, Tax, Time and Attendance, HR and unmatched personal service to power their businesses.
