VACO PARTNER, FRANCES MORENO, NAMED FINALIST IN PRESTIGIOUS LATINO BUSINESS AWARDS
LOS ANGELES (January 31, 2011) - Vaco Los Angeles LLC, a leading placement firm specializing in financial and technology professionals, is pleased to announce today that the company's managing partner, Frances Moreno, was named a finalist at the prestigious Latino Business Awards. These Awards showcase individual business leaders within the Latino community who are setting the "example for excellence" throughout the greater Los Angeles area. The Awards luncheon was held on Thursday, January 27, 2011 at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles.
"I was honored to be nominated and salute my team for the fast growth our firm has experienced," stated Moreno who was inspired to start her own business by her grandmother from Chihuahua, Mexico. "I can't tell you how pleased and humbled I am to be selected runner up for the Latino Business Award from over 150 amazing nominees. I also salute Gilbert Vasquez of Vasquez & Co. for his win in this category."
The awards, sponsored by the Los Angeles Business Journal in partnership with The Latino Business Chamber of Greater Los Angeles, consider a nominee's business record, standing in the community, professional references, contributions to the citizens of Los Angeles, and also the person's "story" - the inspirations, trials, hardships and accomplishments that have led the person to the nomination.
In the case of Moreno, one of nine siblings raised by her mother and grandmother, she not only leads a firm that has been named in recent years one of the Fastest Growing Businesses in Los Angeles and The Best Place to Work in L.A., she is a wife, the mother of three children including one daughter with special needs, and is serving as a Board Member of Kidsave. Her own life circumstances have prompted her to develop a philosophy of work/life balance that she instills in her employees and the consultants she helps to find employment. Frances prides herself on helping to keep Los Angeles working, and her firm has placed over 1,000 Los Angelenos in accounting, tax, audit, finance and technology positions since 2006.
"Vaco" is derived from a Latin word meaning "to free yourself from a master." Vaco Los Angeles LLC was founded in 2006 and has been awarded "Best Place to Work" in 2009 and 2010 and #15 of 100 Fastest Growing Privately Held Companies in Los Angeles in 2009 by the Los Angeles Business Journal. Vaco is a leading consulting and placement firm specializing in the finance and technology sectors. Further information on Vaco can be found at www.vaco.com/los-angeles.
