Jerry Bostelman founded Vaco with a few simple ideas in mind: to create a place where the talented malcontents of the world could be free to do work they love, where smart companies could connect with exceptional humans, and where people would work hard, have fun, and never want to leave. Just your typical every day, life-changing stuff.
He started out with just one employee – himself – to serve as top salesperson and recruiter, website developer, accountant, payroll clerk, executive admin, A/R manager, treasurer, copywriter, and general performer of duties not otherwise assigned. He has now joyfully fired himself from all of the above in favor of much more qualified applicants, but that scrappy entrepreneurial flame still burns bright at the heart of everything Vaco does.
Since its founding in 2002, Vaco has grown to more than 35 offices across the globe, 800+ employees, more than 4,200 consultants and $450M in revenue. Vaco has been named to Inc. magazine’s list of the fastest-growing private companies for the past 11 years and is dedicated to developing long-term relationships, life-long careers and creative client solutions.
Whether you need a highly specialized subject-matter expert for six months, a fresh team of sharp professionals to help you through the busy season, or a nationwide search for a highly qualified C-suite executive, vetting and hiring industry professionals can become an all-consuming task. Finding the right skill set takes time and energy; finding the right overall fit can feel like a gamble. Vaco is there to take the headache out of both.
Attracting hard-to-find top talent and delivering it to your door is what Vaco does best. Vaco is a different kind of company, built on an uncommon culture that values personal empowerment and fierce entrepreneurial spirit.
