Fairfax County, Virginia – Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe today announced that Mission Services Inc. (MSI), which provides IT support services for federal agencies, will invest $820,000 and create 400 new jobs to expand its operation in Fairfax County. Virginia successfully competed against Colorado, Florida, Maryland, Ohio and Texas for the project.

Founded in 2010, MSI is based in the Tysons Corner area of Fairfax County. It emphasizes intelligence analysis, cybersecurity, enterprise architecture, systems engineering, and program management support. MSI has cleared staff deployed on four continents providing support to federal and commercial clients.

“Tysons Corner, Virginia’s largest office market, is one of the leading business centers in the United States, and the monumental growth and development of the Fairfax County business community has allowed Mission Services, Inc. ease of access to not only our clients, but also our business partner,” said MSI President Venkatesh Joshi.

“Proximity to Washington D.C., Dulles Airport, and Metro’s Silver Line increases our ability to conduct business face-to-face, and reach a diverse employee base,” Joshi said. “The diverse backgrounds and perspectives of the Fairfax County employment market afford MSI the opportunity to engage the interconnection of both global and local factors, enriching the services we provide to the U.S. government.”

MSI has more than doubled its square footage on Jones Branch Drive in the last six months.

“I am delighted to see that MSI is growing and taking advantage of the business climate that we have worked hard to develop in Fairfax County,” said Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D., president and CEO of the  Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA). “Tysons Corner is a great location for MSI to be close to the company’s clientele, be close to the skilled talent it needs to help fulfill the missions of those customers, and be in an exciting area that has so much to offer companies and employees.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership will support MSI’s new job creation through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP). State-funded VJIP provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs or experiencing technological change to support employee training activities.
