John  |  Consultant

A long-term relationship with Scouts led this finance strategist to the perfect role.

With 20+ years of experience, John is wrapping up his contract role as a strategist in financial project management for a large health system based in Minneapolis. John likes the variety that contract work brings him. “I simply love this lifestyle. I really enjoy problem-solving new challenges. It keeps me sharp and on the cutting edge.” For seven years, Mark Flaherty was John’s primary agent.

Scouts gets to know you well.

When John and his wife adopted twins in 2010, he felt the need for more routine to focus on his family and took a full-time position as an assets accountant with a large bank. During that time, John lost contact with Mark. “Now that my kids are older, I felt it was time to get back into contracting. I had to hunt Mark down. I wanted to work with Mark again because he knows me so well. And, he knows his clients well too. When my current contract role came up, I was one of three candidates Mark recommended to the health system. He knew I was a perfect fit for their challenging role, and they trusted Mark when he told them so.”

Scouts offers clients and contractors fair pricing.

“I feel fortunate to have a friend like Mark. He’s a stand-up guy. He’s honest and hard-working. He was even able to pay me more than I initially expected. Scouts has ridiculously low overhead and they are very fair with clients and contractors.”
