VACO, LLC Named to Inc. 5000 List for Fifth Straight Year

Consulting & Placement Firm Named One of Nation’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies.

Raleigh, NC, September 08, 2011 --( David R. Rhode, managing partner of VACO Raleigh (, an executive placement and consulting firm has announced that Inc. magazine has ranked VACO as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the country for the fifth consecutive year. The VACO family of companies has grown to 26 locations, including Raleigh, throughout the US and $150M in revenue since its start October 2002.

The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs. Businesses named to the Inc. 5000 list must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, independent companies. Revenue in 2007 must have been at least $100,000, and revenue in 2010 must have been at least $2 million. The Inc. 5000 are responsible for creating more than 370,000 jobs in the last three years, making the list perhaps the best example of the impact private, fast-growing companies can have on the economy.

“The VACO Raleigh office is proud to be a member of such a successful and growing company,” said Rhode. “VACO’s entrepreneurial mindset can be found throughout all the offices and is a vital part of our company culture.”

"This award is based on growth percentage so every year it gets tougher to make the list as revenues grow," said VACO founder Jerry Bostelman. "VACO was founded less than nine years ago, so making the list for five years in a row is independent validation of the epic service our team enthusiastically delivers to our 4,500+ unique clients across the nation."
