In an announcement today, Salo, LLC said it has named Minneapolis executive Ann Ruschy to lead its human resources affiliate company, Oberon, LLC, effective immediately.

Ruschy brings more than two decades of executive management experience to Oberon from a wide range of companies and industries, many in the Twin Cities. According to Salo co-founder, John Folkestad, “Ann’s professional background is broad and deep—with a special focus on human resources and business leadership. She is the perfect choice to lead Oberon through its next growth phase,” he explained.

Ruschy’s experience includes management positions in human resources, sales, and operations. She also has served in executive leadership roles and has experience as an executive coach and consultant. Of her new appointment, Ruschy says, “My passion is to help organizations grow utilizing their company’s greatest assets: people. Oberon is uniquely positioned to achieve this goal as companies are continuing to realize the importance of leveraging the top talent in the marketplace.”

There, Ruschy was an integral part of building a results-driven Human Resources division and leading a high-performing sales and operations function through 2007. Expanding her experience in the consulting arena, Ruschy later worked as an Executive Coach & Consultant for The Bailey Group, where she coached executives on how to maximize their leadership efforts.
