Fairfax County companies dominate 2010 Inc. magazine list of 500 fastest-growing U.S. businesses

Thursday, September 2, 2010

Twenty-four Fairfax County companies –- most of them in technology and professional services fields –- are on Inc. magazine’s 2010 list of the 500 fastest-growing businesses in the United States. That is up from 16 in 2009. Fairfax has more firms on the 2010 list than any other county in the nation, more than any city except New York, and more than all but five states.

Also, Fairfax County firms represent half of the 47 companies on the 2010 list from the Washington area. The $468 million in annual revenue reported by the Fairfax County firms is 59 percent of the revenue reported by Washington-area firms on the Inc. 500 list.

Network security outfit NetWitness holds the number 21 spot overall and is the highest-ranked Fairfax County firm. Rounding out the top five from Fairfax County are Octo Consulting at number 23, Three Pillar Global at number 44, MicroTech at number 53 and MMC Systems at number 63.

“Given the increase in our companies on the list, Fairfax County stands out as one of the nation’s best business locations through the recession,” said Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D., president and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA). “To have almost 5 percent of the national total in one jurisdiction gives enormous credibility to Fairfax County being a great place to live and work and illustrates the value of consistent economic development outreach.”
