“Despite the ongoing pandemic, business activity continued at a rapid pace in Fairfax County in 2021,” said Victor Hoskins, president and CEO of the FCEDA. “We would be proud to announce almost 9,000 new jobs in any year, but very few communities can claim that kind of job creation during the COVID crisis and few communities can claim the kind of diversity that we have in our business community. We congratulate these companies on their growth, and we stand ready to assist even more companies and entrepreneurs in 2022 with the business-development and talent-development services that they need to thrive here.”
