22 Loudoun Companies Named Among Nation’s Fastest Growing
Twenty-two Loudoun County businesses—from a slew of IT companies to a private jet charter company—were named among the nation’s fastest growing privately held companies by Inc. Magazine.
Last year, 14 Loudoun companies made it to the magazine’s list. Economic Development Director Buddy Rizer attributes the growth to the county’s strong IT sector.
“Many of the companies on this list have something to do with IT, which employs almost 30 percent of the Loudoun workforce,” Rizer said in an email announcing the list.
But Inc.’s list of 5,000 fastest growing companies touted more than Loudoun’s IT sector.
Making their third appearance on the list is FCi Federal, a government services company. Seven other Loudoun companies are also being featured for the second year in a row, including TSPi; Strongbridge; SMRC; Ian, Evan & Alexander; Paramount Business Jets and iQuasar.
Knight Solutions also made an encore appearance. The company, which grew from $1.2 million in revenue in 2010 to more than $16 million in 2013, hires military veterans to renovate veteran-occupied cemeteries.
Twelve of Loudoun companies made their first appearance on Inc.’s list, which county Supervisor Matt Letourneau (R-Dulles) said reflects the county economy’s growing diversity.
“The board has strived to create an environment in Loudoun where businesses can succeed, and we look forward to working with them as they continue to grow,” he stated.
Here are the Loudoun-based businesses on the 2014 Inc. 5000 fastest-growing companies list:
Alliance Exposition Services
