Carrie Cunnington

Managing Director, Minneapolis HR

As managing director of the Minneapolis HR team, Carrie collaborates with our HR business development directors and talent managers to create meaningful experiences for our consultants and clients. She’s excited to share Salo’s culture, people, and mission with others.

Before Carrie officially joined Salo, she was already working with our team. Carrie owned an executive coaching/leadership development business for nearly 12 years—with Salo as her client for 8 of them. Carrie’s earlier roles include director of organizational development for North America at CWT, director of training and development at Ryan Companies, and various training and business development roles at Best Buy.

Carrie is passionate about social justice and helping people thrive. She serves on the board of Solid Ground, a not-for-profit organization that helps families emerge from homelessness and is a mentor with Menttium, a corporate mentorship program.

Carrie lives in Dellwood, MN with her husband, Chris (who also works at Salo), their two teenage daughters, and a dog named Patches. They also have two international “daughters” (former exchange students from Denmark and Norway). In her free time, Carrie enjoys working out (thank you, Peloton!), cheering on her daughters in their activities, and traveling.
