Driving Top Technical Talent to Fairfax and Montgomery Counties

Leveraging new technologies in innovative ways

 

On November 16, Governor Ralph Northam announced the funding for the project from the Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP), which will support the addition of 580 new jobs in Montgomery County and 225 new jobs in Fairfax County by 2021.

The Fairfax Economic Development Authority (FCEDA) worked together with Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) to secure the project for Virginia. VEDP will support 1901 Group’s recruitment activities through VJIP, a program that provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs to support employee training activities.

The expansion of its corporate offices in Reston, VA and Enterprise IT Operations Center (EITOC) in Blacksburg, VA is 1901 Group’s commitment to its business model — leveraging talent, quality of life, and the advantageous cost of living in rural areas.

“Our goal of creating high-quality IT jobs clustered in rural areas is the best way to improve quality and performance for the federal government especially as the pace of cloud adoption increases,” said Sonu Singh, CEO 1901 Group.

“1901 Group is a great example of a company leveraging new technologies in innovative ways, and I am delighted that the firm is taking advantage of our technology-focused workforce to expand its corporate operations here,” said Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D., president and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority.
