Bailey, Vratsinas Pursuing Business In Active Retirement

We only became aware of it recently, but another VCC alumnus established residence in west Little Rock's Cypress Plaza, creating an entrepreneurial reunion of sorts.

Bob Bailey, former chief operating officer with the Little Rock general contracting firm, set up shop for his Bailey Construction & Consulting LLC.

His office is next door to a familiar face: Gus Vratsinas, former chairman and corporate namesake at the company originally known as Vratsinas Construction Co.

"I hired Bob 30 years ago out of college," Vratsinas said. "His office adjoins mine, and I'm proud to call him a neighbor."

It's more than coincidence that BC&C is so close with Vratsinas Enterprises LLC.

Bailey left VCC back in October and took a few months off before launching his venture earlier this year. You might recall that Vratsinas left VCC back in April.
