Vaco SF Team

Vice President, Consulting

Gary Fenton

What brought you to Vaco? What drew your interest?
Alex Eigenmann was the one who introduced me to Vaco and got me on board. I was intrigued by the challenge and how I could add value to Vaco along with facilitating my professional growth as a manager.

Why should anyone choose Vaco SF for Managed Services/Contingent Workforce?
Easy, we have the competitive advantage over competitors to drive results and improve processes for our clients, which equates to a world-class customer service experience.

What’s the toughest business decision that you’ve ever made at this point in your career?
I would say to leave my previous position at Amazon. There I honed my process improvement skills and learned how to manage through ambiguity, which has made me a stronger leader.

What’s the best thing about working at Vaco?
The opportunity to build and enhance new processes that differentiates us from our competition.

Describe your work style.
Engaged but not micromanaging.
