Our History

A BETTER WAY

VIP was first launched in 2008 as a direct hire executive search firm capable of servicing small privately-owned companies to Fortune 500 companies. With the demand of additional services in 2010 and a highly skilled search team, we quickly added contract and contract-to-hire staffing to enhance our ability to provide excellent customer service to our clients. In 2017, we added our project management consulting division, creating our current holistic approach. These service lines allow us to be the go-to, one stop shop for our clients. We envisioned a better way of doing business and are continually building on that vision every day.

OUR INTEGRATED APPROACH

We utilize an integrated approach to support your strategic initiatives in accounting and finance. From recruiting and strategic staffing to project management consulting, our service model offers a comprehensive solution that allows for flexibility as you navigate transformation and growth within your organization.

Our Mission

RELATIONSHIPS MATTER

Our mission is to invest in our clients to the point where we are seen as trusted advisors even outside of accounting and finance. We learn about your culture, leadership styles, budget, future goals, and find the perfect solution for your specific needs, which can only happen from truly listening and building a relationship with you.

BE DIFFERENT

Our consulting practice comes in on average 30% lower than other firms due to our unique pricing structure with guaranteed results using our project management approach.

  • Integrated Search, Staffing & Consulting | Our approach provides interim and long-term solutions to fit your resource needs.
  • Director-led Services | All projects are led by a director to identify and achieve goals and objectives.
  • Executive Communication | Our project managers maintain active status documentation, keeping you informed of your project’s pace.
