vCom Featured in Bishop Ranch Milestone Article

June 20, 2013

Bishop Ranch, the largest mixed-use business community in California, announced its four hundredth BR|ready tenant. BR|ready, a leasing program designed for businesses that require 100 to 5,000 square feet, offers small business-friendly benefits including flexible lease terms and move-in ready offices. In the article, vCom is held out as an example of this program.

“One such company, vCom Solutions, a telecom expense management firm, began in 2001 in a 1,200 square foot office suite. At the time, this was plenty of space for its only employee, founder, Gary Storm. Over the years, vCom has enjoyed tremendous growth and has expanded into larger suites working hand-in-hand with Bishop Ranch via BR|ready’s lease growth strategy. Each step of the way, Bishop Ranch helped vCom locate a new space within the office park, renovate the space as necessary, and create a new lease without incurring penalties, even if the current lease had yet to expire. Today, vCom employs 60 people and occupies about 10,000 square feet.”
