Vaco Is One of Fastest-Growing Private Companies

For the 13th Consecutive Year Our Parent Company, Vaco, Appears on the Inc. 5000

Nashville, TN, August 14, 2019 – Vaco, a leading talent & solutions firm based in Nashville, TN, was ranked by Inc. magazine on its 38th annual Inc.5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest growing private companies. This marks the 13th consecutive year Vaco has been included on the Inc. 5000 list since the company’s founding in 2002.

The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent private businesses. The list is ranked according to percentage revenue growth over a three-year period.

Vaco’s three-year growth rate can be attributed to the chance to serve its clients through 40+ offices across the globe, the breadth of engagements it delivers from C-suite placement to complete shared service center relocations, and Vaco’s commitment to relationships for life with its employees, consultants, candidates and clients.

In a tireless effort to deliver more, Vaco has expanded organically to places that range from Winston-Salem to Montreal, and has acquired inspirational and like-minded organizations from San Antonio to Gurugram, India and acquired additional service offerings like it did last week with the acquisition of MorganFranklin Consulting; a renowned, methodology-driven, non-conflicted financial and accounting consulting advisory firm.

The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years. This year, Vaco is ranked No. 4121.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
