It began as a team that helped place permanent and temporary accounting and finance professionals to clients in the Denver area. In 1995, the company opened its Seattle office and focused on permanent placements and contract resources. The name was then changed to Two Degrees, LLC.[3] Formerly known as 'Slalom Consulting,' the company was rebranded as 'Slalom' and released their updated logo in February 2015.
