John Flayter

How would you describe your role, purpose or the outcomes you drive?

Connecting talent with our clients, enabling client success and growing the Salo HR Chicago business.

How has your previous work experience prepared you for your role with Salo?

I have been fortunate to have worked across various industries and HR disciplines both in-house for corporations and as an external consultant. My experiences allow me to listen to our clients and understand their future strategies, their path to succeed and the potential gaps or impediments they may encounter along the way.

How would your friends describe you?

Loyal, genuine, competitive and a friend to everyone. I also service as the golf swing coach to friends and family who need help on the links!

List three interesting things about you, but only one of them needs be true.

I was a two-sport athlete in college.

I have lived in four U.S. states.

My grandfather’s last name, before changing it, was Hacker (not good for an avid golfer)!

What is your favorite thing about working at Salo? 

The people, the culture and the potential for tremendous growth!
