Salo Project announced that Mark Flaherty has been named Director of Sales. Flaherty had previously been a Business Development Manager at the award-winning finance/accounting staffing firm.

As Director of Sales, a new position at Salo Project, Flaherty will be responsible for the development of client partnerships, with a focus on providing strategic services to finance departments throughout the Twin Cities’ business community. Peggy DeMuse, partner and managing director of Salo Project, says that “Mark is a talented strategic thinker who helps our clients fully identify their needs and analyze their business issues. He is the ideal person to fill this important new role for us,” she explained.

Flaherty has over 12 years in the staffing industry and actually introduced the two owners of Salo to each other, over 10 years ago. Flaherty, a St. Paul native, says “Our clients understand that Salo is a great alternative to the Big Four. Our associates bring impressive knowledge to every engagement and they want to stretch to learn more. That’s a terrific asset that helps us provide more value to the companies we serve and to our associates. I am really enthusiastic about the opportunity to work with more of our clients,” he added.

Prior to joining Salo in 2004, Flaherty spent 4 years in Chicago as a business development director and division director for large international staffing firms.
