1901 Group Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary: Then and Now

One Decade of Innovation and Growth, and the Development of World-Class Cloud Factory

RESTON, VA – July 17, 2019 – 1901 Group has reached an exciting milestone as the company celebrates a decade of delivering innovative IT solutions that dramatically improve the functionality, performance, quality, and security of customers’ mission systems through cloud computing, managed services, and IT delivered “as a service”. 1901 Group employs 300 employees and is expanding its Enterprise IT Operations Center in Blacksburg to 45,000 square feet in early 2020.

Founded and operated by Virginia Tech Engineering graduates, 1901 Group focuses on IT service delivery via “IT Factories or Enterprise Operations Centers” located near universities and colleges in rural areas. “We have believed in this model of building IT factories/enterprise operations and development capabilities located in areas with access to talent, a great quality of life, and a moderate cost of living since our inception,” said Sonu Singh, President and CEO of 1901 Group. “We view creating high-quality IT jobs clustered in rural areas as the best way to improve quality and performance for the public sector especially as the pace of cloud adoption and security threats increase. 1901 Group is at the forefront of this trend using process and technology automation to deliver highly secure and efficient “as-a-service” models.”

1901 Group’s culture is based on hard work, innovation, and a bias towards action. “Our team comes from different academic and experience levels, and many different backgrounds. We invest aggressively in the career development of our people to grow IT talent versus hiring talent away from competitors,” said Singh. 1901 Group supports universities like Radford University and Virginia Tech to enhance the talent pipeline for the future through internship programs and curriculum development focused around cloud technologies.

“Our original goal and beliefs remain the same, and our entire team, our partners, our customers, and our communities have made this 10-year anniversary possible, and we believe the best is yet to come,” added Singh.

As one of the state’s fastest-growing companies, 1901 Group was named ‘Virginia’s Fantastic 50’ by the Virginia Chamber of Commerce in 2016, with additional significant milestones that include:
