We are excited to welcome FPA to the VC3 family, as their vision, mission, and culture closely align with ours.

Partnering with VC3 at this time will allow us to take things to the next level and only enhance our ability to deliver “IT the Way It’s Supposed to Be!”. This move will benefit both our clients and our team in a number of key ways - VC3’s deep bench of talent will complement our team improving our service quality and responsiveness, we’ll be able to offer an even wider range of services to our clients, and our team will have even more opportunities for growth in their careers. This is such a logical move for FPA, our clients, and our staff. And I couldn’t be more excited!”
Vestby added, “As we get to know both the FPA team and their clients, I’m looking forward to the knowledge sharing, learning, and new friendships that will result.
