Overall Experience
I have been working with Chris Vacano since 2010. Since that time and across various professional capacities, I’ve been fortunate to benefit from his counsel. Chris has provided consistent, rigorous and valuable guidance which I rely on. His acumen spans both overall business perspective as well as dogged technical acumen – he WILL help find a solution! Chris can be fully relied upon to bring my vision to life. Beyond his “can do – will do” DNA, Chris freely shares his insights and discovery. I’ve learned as much (or as little) as I have wanted at every opportunity. Most recently I engaged Chris to support a complex WordPress development project. On its completion, the site had all the functionality I hoped for, and elegantly designed to boot. As if he needed an additional superpower, Vacano Creative is a fantastic resource for logos, images – all around print design.

Overall Experience
As both friend, colleague, and now formal strategic partner, Chris Vacano helped me get my coaching and consulting firm up and running. When it came to translating my ideas and experience into action, his insight was invaluable and his skills in web design, content packaging, branding, and marketing are top notch. -- Cliff W.

Thank you, Cliff! In the time we've been working together, I have learned so much from you about your area of expertise (leadership) that I should probably be writing you a review. :-)

Overall Experience
I was initially referred to Mr. Chris Vacano by a mutual friend. This recommendation was made to me following a crash of my business website due to an attempted brute force entry into it's control panel by hacker of disguised identity. The marketing company that created my website was in the process of moving its corporate offices from California to South Carolina and required an outrageous fee to just evaluate the situation and the web hosting company maintaining my site was disinterested and minimally helpful. Chris evaluated my situation and implemented measures to get my site back up and running. He then implemented measures to insure that my website was secure with an array of "state of the art" security and authentication measures to insure that I had full control and safety of my website. This included a complete duplicate rewrite of my website using a superior website development platform. I learned the hard way that security of a business website is of utmost importance and if you are going to spend big bucks on a website the developer better know how to secure it and keep it secure. My positive experience with Chris in these regards along with his reasonable fees has earned my trust and has caused me to request his services in other areas including search engine optimization, social media marketing, and messaging refinement, all of which are now ongoing. I believe in personal relationships with people that are highly competent, enthusiastic, honest, trustworthy, and CREATIVE. I have found Chris to have met this criteria entirely.
