Vaco SF Team

Sr. Operations Manager

Michael Naish

What brought you to Vaco? What drew your interest?
Vaco approached me to continue with them as they were taking over the project I had been involved in with another firm. I liked their fresh outlook on business as well as the speed of getting things done.

Why should anyone choose Vaco SF for Managed Services/Contingent Workforce?
Again, speed. Moving at the speed of the client, at the speed of the business and the speed of the need.

What’s the toughest business decision that you’ve ever made at this point in your career?
Putting my “starving artist” aspirations on hold and diving headfirst into a technology career was a tough decision.

What’s the best thing about working at Vaco?
The support, encouragement and camaraderie of the team is the best thing about working at Vaco.

Describe your work style.
Getting it done, even if its includes getting down to the nuts and bolts would best describe my work style.
