Vaco Financial sources and delivers the strongest accounting and financial professionals on a permanent basis through its retained and contingency services. For example, Vaco Financial recently placed a Chief Financial Officer for a Richmond-based startup company to collaborate closely with the CEO and Board of Directors on a number of initiatives. The company has grown to over $15M in revenues in less than two years and required a seasoned finance executive who could manage financial reporting, cash management, strategic planning, forecasting and implement a new accounting software system.
In addition to technology staff augmentation, Vaco Technology provides customized business solutions ranging from high level consulting engagements to interim Management and CIO Resources. Recently, Vaco Technology was engaged to provide a Senior Project Manager to act as a CIO's right hand man. Our client is involved in a company merger and integration effort. Vaco's Senior Project Manager is driving critical projects, acting as a liaison between the business and IT and establishing the foundation for a traditional PMO, allowing the CIO to dedicate time to more strategic, executive oversight.

For example, Vaco Operations recently placed a Director of Human Resources, reporting to the CEO, with a company that has grown from twenty locations to over eighty locations in the span of a year. The candidate made an immediate impact by putting processes in place, creating an employee benefits program and lowering turnover. Having highly-qualified individuals in Administrative, HR and Marketing is vital to an organization's success.
