MINNEAPOLIS – December 10, 2018 – Salo LLC, a leading staffing and consulting firm for finance, accounting and human resources in Minneapolis and Chicago, has named Lisa Brezonik president.

Brezonik, previously Salo’s chief operating officer, will now assume day-to-day management of the fast-growing company. Brezonik’s appointment builds upon a management organizational change announced in July that included expanded responsibilities for several of the existing leaders within the firm.  

Brezonik joined Salo in 2015 as chief talent officer and became chief operating officer in 2017. Prior to Salo, she held various leadership roles at RBC Dain Rauscher, including chief administrative officer of fixed income business and senior vice president of human resources and communications. She also founded and grew her own executive coaching and consulting firm for nine years.

“Salo was built on valuing the relationship over the transaction,” said Amy Langer, Salo co-founder. “Lisa is a business builder who has continued to create a business environment where people thrive and provide exceptional service to our clients.”

With 625 employees across the Midwest, Salo is a leader in interim and project staffing, consulting and permanent search.

Since 2010, the company has experienced significant year-over-year growth, and has been recognized by numerous awards, including Entrepreneur and Inc. Magazine’s fastest-growing business awards.  

“I’m excited about the opportunity to advance Salo’s mission – “connecting people to make a difference”.” said Brezonik. “As we work with C-level leaders, we’ve seen that they desire to work in a different way. Either they are looking for different career models in which to use their expertise, or they need to leverage outside expertise to help their internal teams.

We have begun to capitalize on opportunities beyond the Twin Cities and Chicago markets, and the Salo team is perfectly positioned to help us go after continued growth. This is exciting as we’ll be able to take advantage of talent trends to better help individuals and companies alike.”

Salo co-founders, Amy Langer and John Folkestad, will retain ownership of the company. They will serve as business relationship builders and Salo ambassadors through their work within the finance and human resource communities and board service.

“We feel very fortunate to have exceptional talent within our organization,” said Folkestad “It is gratifying to see new opportunities unfold for these deserving leaders who are committed to taking on new challenges and driving our growth.”
