Meet the Team.
CEO & Founder
Founder, Braden Yuill, has proven to be an exceptional entrepreneur, reinventing the manner in which people view the structure behind businesses. Standing behind the belief that there is no “one size fits all” business model, Braden has applied his personal experiences to assisting others in finding new, productive ways to run their organizations.
With costs of employment continuing to rise, Braden went in search of ascertaining a more cost-effective way of keeping his enterprises successfully running without compromising the quality of work. After outsourcing assistance to the Philippines for his own companies, Braden was compelled to evince his findings with fellow entrepreneurs. Hence, the establishment of Virtual Coworker.
