EY will add 462 jobs in Fairfax County
EY (formerly Ernst & Young LLP) will expand its operations in Fairfax County, creating 462 jobs over three years.
The assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services firm is the first major tenant announced for The Corporate Office Centre at Tysons II in Tysons Corner. The company plans to invest about $12 million as it relocates its offices to 125,000 square feet of space in the building, which is being constructed adjacent to a Tysons Corner stop on Metro’s Silver Line. The company's office is currently located at 8484 Westpark Drive.
Virginia successfully competed against Maryland and Washington, D.C., for the project.
“We are elated that EY selected Fairfax County as the location for its expansion,” Gerald L. Gordon, president and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA) said in a statement. “We know that a company of this stature has many options in the region and beyond. “
The FCEDA worked with the Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) to secure the project for Virginia. Gov. Terry McAuliffe approved a $1.3 million grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund to assist with the project. Additional funding and services to support the company’s employee training activities will be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program administered by VEDP.
“At EY, we are committed to investing in great people and developing future leaders. In order to create an environment that supports our people and fosters high-performance teaming, we need state-of-the-art offices that bring our people together,” Kevin C. Virostek, Greater Washington managing partner of EY, said in a statement. “Relocating to The Corporate Office Centre at Tysons II will provide EY with a dynamic workspace that will allow our people to thrive and provide exceptional client service.”
