Award winning small business MicroTechnologies, LLC (d.b.a. MicroTech) was recently honored by the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority at the 2009 Celebration of Northern Virginia Business Success, held January 27 at the Ritz-Carlton Tysons Corner. The event highlighted a number of local businesses that are among the largest in their category or have grown quickly in the last several years. This was the second straight year that MicroTech was selected for the gala honor.
“We are very pleased to be again honored by the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority, local elected officials, and the Northern Virginia business community,” said Tony Jimenez, President and CEO of MicroTech. “The foundation of MicroTech’s success has always been based on our commitment to cultivating and developing the best professionals. Hosting our corporate operations in Fairfax County provides us with a competitive advantage when it comes to recruiting a well-educated, highly-skilled workforce.”
MicroTech is one of the most highly-regarded and fastest-growing network and IT enterprise management providers, offering Information Technology Systems and Services, Strategic Solutions, Audio-Visual Telecommunications Design and Installation, Product Solutions, and Consulting Services primarily to the Federal Government, and city, state, and local agencies – managing over 400,000 users daily.
Honorees for the event were drawn from 2008 business success scorecards like Black Enterprise magazine's B.E. 100 list of the 100 largest African American-owned firms, Hispanic Business magazine's list of the top 500 Hispanic-owned businesses, the Virginia Chamber of Commerce’s “Fantastic 50 of the fastest-growing companies in the Commonwealth,” and the Washington Business Journal's “50 Fastest-Growing Companies” list.
“We are delighted to host an event that honors companies for their contributions in expanding and diversifying Northern Virginia’s business communities and making this one of the most dynamic regional economies in the nation,” said Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D., president and CEO of the FCEDA.
Time magazine called Fairfax County, just outside Washington, D.C., “one of the great economic success stories of our time.” Fairfax County offers businesses a state-of-the-art telecommunications infrastructure, access to domestic and international markets through Washington Dulles International Airport and a well-educated workforce.
“Fairfax County’s close proximity to Washington has allowed me unique opportunities to host business networking events on Capitol Hill, testify before Congress, and even meet with President Bush at the White House,” said Jimenez. “I can’t think of a better place to ensure business success than to base your organization in Fairfax County.”
