Integrity Management Consulting tops 2013 Virginia Chamber of Commerce ranking; Lanmark Technology and Ampcus make Women Presidents’ Organization list

Friday, May 3, 2013

Twenty-five Fairfax County companies comprise half of the 2013 Virginia Chamber of Commerce “Fantastic 50” ranking of the fastest-growing businesses in Virginia. Tysons Corner-based Integrity Management Consulting, which supports federal agencies with acquisition and program management and which posted a growth rate of 2,165 percent between 2008 and 2011, topped the list as the fastest-growing company in the state.

The Virginia Chamber honored all 50 companies at a banquet held April 25 at the Westfields Marriott Washington Dulles in the Chantilly area of Fairfax County. The list is printed in the May edition of Virginia Business magazine and is available online.

“This list is one indicator that Fairfax County continues to be an exceptional location for companies that are growing and becoming increasingly successful,” said Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D., president and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority.

The Women Presidents’ Organization (WPO) released its 2013 list of the 50 fastest-growing woman-owned or led companies in North America. Two Fairfax County-based companies made the list: Tysons Corner-based Lanmark Technology Inc. (9) and Chantilly-based Ampcus, Inc. (36). The WPO announced the rankings at its annual conference, held May 2 in Dallas. The full list is available on the Web site of The Wall Street Journal.

“Having this kind of dynamic and entrepreneurial business community yields job opportunities and further enhances the quality of life in Fairfax County,” Gordon said. “The entire Commonwealth of Virginia benefits from the success of these businesses through additional income taxes that support programs statewide.” Gordon is a member of the Virginia Chamber board of directors.

The Virginia Chamber based its rankings on company revenue growth between 2008 and 2011. The accounting firm of Dixon Hughes Goodman reviewed the financial records of entries to determine the winners.

All companies that submitted nominations for the WPO list were ranked according to a sales growth formula that combines percentage and absolute growth. To be qualified for the ranking, businesses were required to be privately held, woman-owned or led companies in the U.S. or Canada and reached annual revenue of at least $500,000 in 2007 and $2 million in 2012.
