Sheila Quinn

How would you describe your role, purpose or the outcomes you drive?
I am energized by connecting people in a way that allows for everyone to achieve positive outcomes. It’s a win-win when consultants are doing the work they love and clients are able to drive valuable work at their organizations.

How has your previous work experience prepared you for your role with Salo?
I have held a variety of HR roles throughout my career and I understand the impact great talent can have on an organization. I also understand the constant priority juggling that HR leaders are dealing with. At Salo, I have the opportunity to help HR leaders knock a few things off of their priority list with top notch talent!

How would your friends describe you?
Supportive, energetic, outgoing and always up for a laugh (even in the hard times)!

List three interesting things about you, but only one of them needs to be true.
I am from the St Louis area but have always been a Cubs fan (I’ve endured much trash talking throughout my life).

Watching infomercials is a guilty pleasure of mine.

When I was a child, I was on The Mickey Mouse Club.

What is your favorite thing about working at Salo?
The values of the organization. Salo is clear on who we are and how we will work. This shows up in our people, our processes, our decision-making and so many other areas. Being surrounded by a supportive environment of people all focused on doing what’s best for our employees, consultants and clients is fantastic!
