Salo announces national business expansion

Refreshed brand, purpose, and services anchor growth strategy with focus on making work meaningful

Minneapolis, Minn. – May 20, 2021 – Salo, a leading talent and consulting firm, today announced the launch of its new brand and plans for national business expansion. Salo connects vetted experts in finance, accounting, and HR with organizations who need their expertise. The company’s updated purpose to “build a world that works better together” and new brand are designed to reflect Salo’s expanding services, breadth of expertise, and commitment to empowering people through fulfilling work.

“Salo’s initial plans were upended in 2020 like so many other organizations,” said Lisa Brezonik, Salo CEO. “We took that time to re-evaluate what we wanted ‘to be’ as a company going forward in an ever-changing world. It became clear that helping others find meaningful work is what has always energized us and we were inspired to help serve more clients, consultants, and communities.”

Salo was founded in Minneapolis in 2002, opened its Chicago office in 2010, and is currently establishing a presence in Denver. The company’s 500+ consultant network extends across 34 states and provides the infrastructure to connect talent and organizations from coast to coast. Salo plans to have an increased presence in 5-10 additional markets over the next few years, including Houston and Charlotte.

“The pandemic has changed everything about how we work,” said Brezonik. “Geographic boundaries are disappearing; companies are exploring non-traditional talent models—all of which opens a national market for high-impact talent and organizations to find each other. And meaningful work is at the center of personal and professional decisions for leaders and employees.”

One of the new ways Salo will be partnering with its clients is through Salo Advisory™, a recently launched service dedicated to supporting C-suite executives and board leaders by pairing them with consultants who have executive-level experience in solving issues and managing through strategic challenges. Salo’s other core services include:

  • Salo Expert™: Connecting businesses with senior-level consultants to fill critical roles or tackle specific project needs
  • Salo Compass™: Providing access to public accounting rising stars

Salo continues to have the same passion for client success and live out the same values. This is an evolution to the journey Salo has been on for 18 years with an evolved purpose, updated brand, national expansion, and the addition of new and improved services.
