What Our Clients Say
Isolux Ingenieria USA
“vcfo was brought in to assist Isolux Ingenieria USA in the early start-up days. As the CEO, I was very impressed by their substantive skills and their ability to work with a diverse group of people spread across various offices and countries. Although they were an outsourced function they became a part of our leadership team seamlessly and were an integral part of achieving our first successful project (with a contract value of over $600 million) and implementing the systems, processes and policies that enabled us to grow to over 100 employees within two years. They helped us establish an infrastructure that provided a solid foundation and enabled our company to be scalable and support our expanding business needs, including talent acquisition programs, payroll and HR software system implementations, immigration matters, employee benefit plan design and rollout, employee policies and procedures, corporate insurance and compensation programs. They handled challenging and rapidly changing situations very well, without losing sight of the company’s overall goals. I would not hesitate to work with them again.”
Living Direct, Inc.
“As a business owner, it has been imperative to partner with great people and partners to grow our business. During a time of incredibly rapid growth, we depended on the expertise and guidance provided by vcfo relating to an array of HR matters. We gained access to expert advice at a reasonable variable cost relative to bringing on a full time HR professional which allowed us to focus on growing our business. We continue to thrive in large part due to the assistance of vcfo in putting great people programs, processes and policies in place. Looking back, bringing vcfo was one of the best decisions we ever made.”
“We were experiencing significant growth, but weren’t ready to commit to a full-time HR department. vcfo provided the perfect solution — we continue to benefit from their deep human resources experience, while paying for only what we need.”
FastPath Learning, Inc.
“Following the unexpected departure of my HR Director, I was forced to search out a resource that would allow me to continue to manage the operation and still know that the responsibilities of my HR Department were being addressed. This resource was vcfo. Our consultant immediately assessed my risks and set off to mitigate my exposure as quickly as possible.
During her time here, the organization grew from 300 to 800 employees and expanded into 7 other states in a four-month period, and she expertly managed all HR and recruiting aspects of that transition. Besides being an outstanding human resources professional, she was a trusted confidant that I could always depend on for well thought out recommendations, which were sensitive to both the business and the employees.
I will continue to call on vcfo in the future and wholeheartedly recommend them for ANY executive HR and recruiting needs.”
Wind Energy Transmission of Texas (WETT)
“Initially WETT had no local presence with Board members and shareholders located in Canada, Spain and the northeast US. We brought in vcfo CFO and HR consultants during the initial company start-up in 2009 to assist in establishing that local presence. They took the lead in physically setting up our office, from identifying the office space to helping with the IT set up. vcfo helped establish and administer benefit plans, created employee policies and practices, set up and processed payroll, provided compensation program recommendations and developed onboarding and performance management systems. As the permanent WETT team was developed, vcfo worked on-site with our teams to organize the financial policies and controls, select tax advisors and auditors and open bank accounts, among other crucial details needed for any new business. Even though we are now at full-staff, they continue to provide ongoing HR and financial support as they have since the company opened and are an invaluable resource for us as we’ve grown the business.”
“Frazer called on VCFO to assist with HR when we unexpectedly lost our long term HR manager on staff. As Frazer’s president, I immediately became the “Acting” HR manager with very limited knowledge or experience in this area. Teresa Foltz came into Frazer a couple of days a week to coach me in all things HR while assisting us to hire a new HR manager. In the process, Teresa conducted a full HR audit of our department records and processes, and then coached me and our incoming HR manager on how to improve on areas of weakness identified. Teresa immediately became a trusted partner for me and the Frazer owners and was instrumental in helping us to avoid potential HR compliance issues while enabling us to continue to keep HR running smoothly in the absence of a qualified manager.”
