Community Builder. Connector. Attracting companies and talent to Raleigh and the Research Triangle since 2010.

For the past decade, I have played a strategic role in helping to cultivate and build the critical infrastructure for the startup ecosystem in Raleigh and the Triangle region. We have experienced substantial growth in a short period of time, yet we are still a young community and we have a greater story to tell. We welcome you to help us write that story.

Professionally, I have finally found ‘My Tribe’ at Vaco Raleigh, where I am building the HR & People Operations Consulting practice focused on emerging-growth & VC/PE-backed companies. Vaco is a US-based, private-equity fueled collective of 45 locally-led, boutique-run offices across the US, with a significant and growing global presence. Although our roots are in recruiting & staffing, our entrepreneurial culture has enabled us to create highly-specialized practice areas centered around consulting and managed services.

I LOVE to solve organizational & operational challenges. If you are seeking a business partner that will add value during times of company expansion AND contraction, I welcome you to connect with me at dminor [at] vaco.com.
