Taylor graduated from the Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina in 2011 and immediately jumped into the world of recruiting. He started his career at Vaco in 2011 where he has recruited for clients such as Disney, Pacific Gas & Electric, Yahoo!, and Sony. After achieving top producer for 2013 out of a team of six, Taylor was recognized by Vaco and was brought to Raleigh to be instrumental in the building of the Technology division. During his time in Raleigh Taylor helped to scale the team from three to seven and focused on recruiting in all things technology, where he ultimately found his niche within development and TriNug (Raleigh .NET User Group). In June 2014 Taylor was asked to return to the Nashville office to help build out the technology team. Since his return, Taylor has been elected VP of the .NET User Group in Nashville for the last two years. He focuses 100% of his time within the development vertical in technology. As of 2017 Taylor is the Recruiting Manager of Vaco’s Nashville Technology division that is responsible for grossing over $5 million a year in revenue and ranking in the top of over 30+ Vaco Technology offices. From his time at Vaco he has seen the team triple in size from seven to eighteen and growing! He has spoken at multiple conferences ranging from the Raleigh Code Conference, Code Stock Knoxville, Nashville Music City Code Conference, to Vaco’s National Engage the World Conference and continues to be heavily involved within both the local and national tech community.
Outside of work Taylor is an avid traveler, food & wine lover, and adventure seeker with his wife, Jackie. So far they have visited Thailand, Bali, Mexico, BVI's, and Europe. They hope to add India, New Zealand, and Cambodia to the list in the next few years! When he is not traveling, Taylor can be found at the rink managing Nashville's adult inline hockey league, or at home roughhousing with his barn cat, corgi, or his wife.
