September 15, 2021


SAN DIEGO (September 15, 2021)—Coastal Payroll announced today that it has appointed Dinora Sanchez to be its chief operating officer.  

Sanchez has a rich history in the payroll and workforce management industry in various positions, including sales, operations and executive leadership. She spent nearly 33 years at ADP, the world’s largest payroll company, leaving as senior vice president, Global Shared Services. In her most recent post with ADP, Sanchez was responsible for the company’s seven “OneADP” locations.

Sanchez joins Coastal as it hits record growth, having notched its seventh consecutive INC 5000 award.  

“We’ve been searching for the right executive to join our leadership team for some time now,” said Jonathan Gallagher, CEO and cofounder of Coastal Payroll. “Dinora’s experience is far beyond what we could have hoped for, but her leadership qualities are what really sealed the deal for us. She is a servant leader with a history of leaving a true impact.”

“I chose Coastal for its culture and values,” Sanchez said. “I recognized what a truly special environment exists here, which has allowed the company and its employees to thrive. I wanted to be part of that.”

As a team, Coastal Payroll is looking forward to more growth in the future, with Sanchez’s support. This will include building on the robust solution set to meet clients’ evolving needs, expanding the client base through exceptional service, and enabling Coastal employees the opportunity for career advancement and professional growth.
