Acentia is moving headquarters to Fairfax County
- January 9, 2012
Acentia, a company that provides technology and management solutions to the federal government and commercial markets, plans to invest $3.1 million to move its corporate headquarters to Fairfax County from Montgomery County, Md. The project is expected to create 60 new jobs.
Acentia will move to 3130 Fairview Park Drive in the Falls Church area. Nearly 200 employees are expected to occupy two floors of the 46,000-square-foot office space. The Fairview Park business campus also is the headquarters location for three Fortune 500 companies: CSC, General Dynamics and Northrop Grumman.
In announcing the move Monday, Gov. Bob McDonnell said, “The strong technology-based workforce in the region and access to federal customers and business partners made the commonwealth the right choice for the company. I am confident in a successful partnership, and warmly welcome Acentia to Virginia.”
The company is headed by prominent Washington area businessman Todd Stottlemyer.
“Fairfax County gives us access to the highly skilled technical staff and management consultants we need to continue to provide essential services to our customers,” CEO Stottlemyer said in a statement. “… Our new space should be a springboard to a great 2012 for Acentia.”
The Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA) worked with the Virginia Economic Development Partnership to secure the project for Virginia. Through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program, the Virginia Department of Business Assistance will provide funding and services to support the company’s recruitment and training activities. “We are honored to have another high-quality employer moving into Fairfax County …” said Gerald L. Gordon, president and CEO of the FCEDA.
