This experience saves money and time through minimization of rework and confusion throughout the process.
      • Best Available Talent. The ability to attract the best finance, accounting, and information technology resources has resulted in Vaco establishing a level of talent unmatched by others in the market.

      • Independence. Vaco does not perform attest services. Our structure is designed to provide you with consulting services without risk of actual or apparent violations of corporate independence. Our specialty is providing dedicated resources committed to your project needs.
      • Long-Term Relationship. Vaco’s culture is built on investing in long-term relationships with each of our clients and candidates. We also apply this same philosophy internally which results in very low turn-over (<5%).
      • Tenured Consultants. We specialize in providing senior-level project professionals with a minimum of 10 years of experience. This includes professionals with experience in both public accounting and industry as either a CFO, CIO, Controller, or Manager of Accounting Operations. As a result, our resources hit the ground running and begin adding value immediately.
      • Value. Our corporate structure and cost conscious management style gives us the ability to provide you with the best available resources at the most competitive prices. We offer experienced professionals with industry-specific experience at a price that will not require you to sacrifice other critical initiatives.
