Salo’s national expansion efforts drive new sales leader promotions and roles

Building a world that works better together, helping people find meaningful work—it all starts with connection.

As Salo continues to grow nationwide, our connections continue expanding, bringing us to new markets, new clients, and new relationships.

So, we’re thrilled to start the new year off by announcing several new sales leader roles and promotions. We’re grateful to these leaders for putting connection—and people—at the center of our work.

“As these sales leaders step into their new roles, they will share their expertise and passion with our finance, accounting, and HR clients and consultants, helping to solve business challenges and creating meaningful work to talent across the country,” says CEO Lisa Brezonik.
