Every member of our talented team contributes meaningfully to our organization’s success. We pride ourselves on exemplifying our Ownership Values to deliver high-quality solutions to our clients, build and maintain strong relationships, and provide effective leadership to shape the next generation of our firm’s leaders.

Even more importantly, we are committed to providing team members with unlimited opportunities for growth. One way in which we do this is through our annual leadership recognitions.

Every year we celebrate team members who set themselves apart by contributing value to the organization while delivering quality outcomes and leading by example. Some are at the beginning of their leadership journey, while others have achieved success at the most senior level. Each is an effective leader who makes an impact in their immediate area as well as the broader organization.

“The passion, expertise, and care that our people show in their work every day is key to what makes Salas O’Brien special,” said Darin Anderson, chairman and CEO. “I’m thankful for all they do for our organization and those around them and am excited to see what they achieve next.”

Every person listed here is nominated and unanimously approved by our principal team and selected based on their professional contributions and achievements. This year’s group of recognitions is by far our largest and represents the personal and professional growth that is possible for anyone at Salas O’Brien.

We’d especially like to highlight the 27 individuals who received the well-earned recognition of Principal. Each is a proven and recognized leader in our organization, driving value and leading through collaboration, mentorship, strategic planning, and continuous improvement.
