Vaco SF Team

Head of Center of Excellence

Dash Slootbeek

What brought you to Vaco? What drew your interest?
My team transitioned from another agency to Vaco over two years ago.

Why should anyone choose Vaco SF for Managed Services/Contingent Workforce?
The people-first attitude everyone has here makes it easy.

What’s the toughest business decision that you’ve ever made at this point in your career?
Passing up the opportunity to attend graduate school. I had been accepted to two schools, but decided that the potential debt was not worth it. That decision led me to the current role I’m in, so I’d say it has worked out pretty well.

What’s the best thing about working at Vaco?
They make sure you’re happy. If you’re not happy in your current role, they’re eager to find you a better fit. If you are happy, they do everything they can to make sure you stay that way.

Describe your work style.
Get it done.
