Wow! What a year! 2018 pushed us in great ways. It was vChief's second full year in operations, and we grew significantly but stayed focused on our core offering of chief of staff support. We also continued to build the team and the systems that help us operate at peak efficiency.
We added new clients and consultants at a dizzying pace, finishing the year with revenue up nearly 40% from 2017. We provided 6,869 hours of support to our 32 clients this year. They've been thrilled with our results:
100% of surveyed clients would recommend vChief services to a friend
96% say their chief of staff manages projects effectively
92% believe their chief of staff is a helpful thought partner to them
84% are spending their time more strategically because of vChief support
We are so excited to be able to bring this level of excellence to our client base, which we've been able to do because of our stellar team. We've grown our team this year, with 28 team members supporting our clients and 6 leading our internal operations. We've been blessed to have so many referrals for talented chief of staff candidates that, despite never posting the role anywhere, we had to close the applicant pool for a period of time because we couldn't keep up with the demand!
The vast majority of our clients and our talent comes from referrals and we thank you, all of our champions and supporters, for that. 2019 promises to be an excellent year as well - we can't wait to get to it!
