Women Who Move the City 2017
Meet some of the business, civic and educational leaders who work to bring about positive change and enhance the quality of life in our community.
Competition in the job market doesn’t just apply to job seekers. “Employers have to move quickly and compete for talent,” says Denise Bennett-Walls, managing partner of Vaco Orlando, a professional staffing and business consulting firm. “That can be very challenging as you juggle the multitude of tasks required to run your business and also try to find time to select the right candidates to join your team. That’s where we come in. Vaco Orlando has the experience and success within Central Florida so companies can hire and retain top-notch talent here instead of recruiting outside the area or moving their offices.”
“Central Florida has been growing consistently due to the exceptional commitment of the business community, the Economic Development Commission, chambers of commerce and area colleges, and that growth will continue,” she explains. “The Orlando marketplace is one of the best locales in the country to live and work so it’s easy to attract and retain talent here. Our passion is to help entrepreneurs build their businesses by acquiring expertise that will allow them to compete locally, nationally, and globally.”
Denise had a vision and launched Vaco Florida in 2005. Its divisions—focused on accounting and finance, technology, operations, and office professionals—provide the foundation for a staffing and business consulting firm that serves both individuals and companies. She has built a business that supplies clients with years of expertise, along with a focus on business growth and the integration of mergers and acquisitions. “Our team has the experience and expertise that will deliver success to our clients.
Our strategic plan is customized to the
market and its needs.”
With offices now extending into North and South Florida, Denise has created a business model that allows companies to take advantage of senior experience on a cyclical or permanent basis, adding talent as their needs change. Services that Vaco Orlando provides clients include management consulting; talent on a project basis; interim professionals; professional search, outsourced services, permanent and temporary staffing for technology, operations, human resources, marketing, sales, call center, managed services operations and accounting. She also hosts monthly events open to all professionals in the community interested in fine-tuning their professional and networking skills.
In the last 11 years, Vaco Orlando has provided professionals seeking employment with more than 5,200 jobs locally, with over 1,200 of those in the Central Florida marketplace in the last 12 months, and the company is poised for more success ahead. “Vaco Orlando has invested in Florida with growth in the southern and northern parts of the state,” said Denise. “We listen to our clients and the marketplace, and a focus for us in 2017 is in the areas of retained search and managed services. Additionally, Vaco completed two acquisitions at the end of 2016 that will expand our national team in the healthcare field with award-winning expertise and accreditation, a hallmark of the Vaco business model overall.”
