What do you love best about working with Vaco?

What I like most about my job at Vaco is the freedom it gives me to focus on the things I enjoy as well as the ability to work with friends and network connections. I enjoy the collaborative engagement I have with my clients, and I also mentor several developing Accounting & Finance people. I truly value the relationships I make with professionals at all levels.
