Mover and shaker
Tuesday, March 10, 2009
John Folkestad ‘89, Edina, has SALO employees walking while they talk on the phone, using headsets, one of a number of initiatives implemented to encourage a less sedentary work style. Co-founded in 2002 with partner Amy Langer, SALO, a provider of accounting and finance professionals, expected to hit a 2008 revenue goal of $56 million. But a better bottom line has meant a bigger waistline for Folkestad, who put long hours into growing the business and launching Oberon and NumberWorks. The accounting graduate believes the active culture he fosters will support a healthier lifestyle for all employees.
