Fairfax County, Virginia (May 8, 2023) – Earlier today, Governor Glenn Youngkin announced that Dev Technology Group, an information technology services company delivering mission-critical applications and systems to the federal government, will invest $366,000 to expand in Fairfax County.

The project will create 90 new jobs.
“As a federal contractor, Dev Technology has selected to continue its growth in Fairfax County due to the proximity of clients and access to highly skilled employees, including veterans,” said Kendall Holbrook, CEO of Dev Technology. “In addition, Northern Virginia is a diverse and inclusive community that allows us to attract and retain people of all backgrounds, which ultimately makes our company stronger and more resilient.”

“Thank you to Dev Technology for choosing to continue to grow right here in Fairfax County,” said Jeffrey C.
