NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Aug. 26, 2022 – Vaco, a global professional services firm specializing in consulting, talent solutions and managed services, was ranked for the 16th consecutive year by Inc. magazine on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses.

In addition to a number of major acquisitions, including the most recent Bay State Search in Boston, Vaco continued its global expansion with offices in Hyderabad, India.

“The need for creative, responsive and diverse talent solutions is greater now than ever before. We are well-positioned to provide the support and resources our clients need in this highly dynamic talent market and deliver expanded managed services and consulting solutions across functional areas and industries. To have climbed the Inc. 5000 list this year feels especially notable given the change in the global environment during the last 12 months,” said Vaco Chief Executive Officer and co-founder, Brian Waller. “The people that define who and what Vaco is – our clients, candidates, consultants and employees – will always be our differentiator, and we are motivated to serve and positively impact each and every one.”

The Inc. 5000 list is ranked according to percentage of revenue growth over a three-year period; with a three-year revenue growth rate of 118 percent, this year Vaco ranked no. 4072.

The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
