Revenue climbed to $607 million in 2013 at VCC, the largest general contracting firm in Arkansas. In addition to its varied projects that dot the state, the company is known nationally for its retail work, such as the mammoth Downtown Summerlin development under construction on the western edge of Las Vegas. VCC operates offices in Fayetteville as well as three in Texas — in Dallas, Houston and McAllen — and in Atlanta; Phoenix; Tampa, Florida; Irvine, California; and Sao Palo. Sam Alley, who has served as CEO since 2004, helped found the company in 1987 with Gus Vratsinas and Ed DeMoss.
