@gancw1 , Use this code in a blank query in power query

 

let
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("i45WclTSUQpOzEktBtIuiWWZKUDaUMErMU/ByMDICMgxQnBidSDq3TLzEvOSU4Esx9xKVCU6Sqao6p2QzPfKz8gDq/BPLoEpN0dwYMoRxvtU5qEq0VGyQFIfCwA=", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type nullable text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [Company = _t, Team = _t, Member = _t, #"Start Date" = _t, #"End Date" = _t]),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Company", type text}, {"Team", type text}, {"Member", type text}, {"Start Date", type date}, {"End Date", type date}}),
    #"Unpivoted Columns" = Table.UnpivotOtherColumns(#"Changed Type", {"Company", "Team", "Member"}, "Attribute", "Value"),
    #"Duplicated Column" = Table.DuplicateColumn(#"Unpivoted Columns", "Team", "Team - Copy"),
    #"Merged Columns" = Table.CombineColumns(#"Duplicated Column",{"Team", "Attribute"},Combiner.CombineTextByDelimiter(" ", QuoteStyle.None),"Merged"),
    #"Pivoted Column" = Table.Pivot(#"Merged Columns", List.Distinct(#"Merged Columns"[Merged]), "Merged", "Value"),
    #"Pivoted Column1" = Table.Pivot(#"Pivoted Column", List.Distinct(#"Pivoted Column"[#"Team - Copy"]), "Team - Copy", "Member", List.Max),
    #"Grouped Rows" = Table.Group(#"Pivoted Column1", {"Company"}, {{"Sales Start Date", each List.Max([Sales Start Date]), type nullable date}, {"Sales End Date", each List.Max([Sales End Date]), type nullable date}, {"Finance Start Date", each List.Max([Finance Start Date]), type nullable date}, {"Finance End Date", each List.Max([Finance End Date]), type nullable date}, {"Finanace", each List.Max([Finance]), type nullable text}, {"Sales", each List.Max([Sales]), type nullable text}})
in
    #"Grouped Rows"
