Vaco SF Team

Service Delivery Lead

What brought you to Vaco? What drew your interest?

I was introduced to Vaco from a Partner at Focus Search Partners. I used to work for him back in 2012-2013.

Why should anyone choose Vaco SF for Managed Services/Contingent Workforce?

We execute all types of managed service projects flawlessly and will rarely say no to a potential client!!!

What’s the toughest business decision that you’ve ever made at this point in your career? Explain.

When the pandemic came full force in the spring of 2020, I was faced with the problem of possibly being let go from my previous position at Focus Search Partners. Adam Charlson (my boss prior to Jim Jhanda) suggested I take a risk and work for the SF team (potentially only part time). He thought it would be a great opportunity for me to grow in my career and boy am I glad I took the risk and jumped ship!!

What’s the best thing about working at Vaco?

I really have loved all of the support my superiors give me. They really encourage me in my career goals and are constantly providing me with opportunities to grow and evolve. The fact that they believe in me so much speaks volumes about who they are as leaders and that touches me more than they will ever know!

Describe your work style.

I go above and beyond to make my colleagues happy as well as our clients. Coming from the executive search world, I really strive for perfection and like to give each client I work with that C-Level search experience. Whether I am placing Warehouse Associates in a furniture liquidation project or placing Senior Sales Executives for a medical insurance company, I always provide top quality service. I want them to remember why Vaco is the best staffing firm to reach out when needing help in their search efforts.
