“VDC is wired for sound in the B2B data space. Time and time again they have demonstrated an uncanny ability to tap into their network – to build ours. Whether it’s building our data asset, or selling and marketing the same, VDC makes it look easy. Within a year of working together – it was clear that we wanted VDC on our Advisory Board. Since then they have been instrumental in developing & executing a strategy that has seen triple digit growth for 3 consecutive years. If your in the B2B space, and you don’t have VDC working for you – well – I guess I’m happy!”
