David F. Melcher

During the third quarter of 2011, the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA) provided services and resources to 41 businesses that are adding 1,146 jobs in Fairfax County. Most of these businesses are in the IT and professional services sectors, and five are foreign-owned firms using a Fairfax County location to expand in North America.

One of the most prominent announcements came from ITT Exelis, a spinoff from ITT Corporation that established its new corporate headquarters in Tysons Corner and is adding 70 jobs to the county economy.

Other businesses that are creating jobs in Fairfax County:

  • AppAssure Software, which develops backup and disaster recovery software, adding 150 jobs;
  • CACI International, which provides IT security solutions, adding 202 jobs.
  • Comter Systems, a Small Business Administration-certified minority-owned 8(a) company that provides management consulting and IT services, adding 12 jobs.
  • XO Communications, one of the nation’s largest communications service providers, adding 80 jobs.

ITT Exelis’ CEO and President David F. Melcher said, “Our headquarters in Tysons Corner is a wonderful place to be. It’s a vibrant place, a great location with access to the businesses and partners we want to be close to, in a state that really wanted us here.”

Time magazine called Fairfax County, “one of the great economic success stories of our time.” Business growth helps Fairfax County fund the nation’s top-rated school system and other public services that contribute to the quality of life of residents. Fairfax County offers businesses a state-of-the-art telecommunications infrastructure, access to global markets through Washington Dulles International Airport and a well-educated workforce.
