“We are honored to welcome Amentum to Fairfax County and want to thank them for choosing Chantilly for their new headquarters,” said Victor Hoskins, president and CEO of Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA). “Our world-class network of mission-driven companies just grew even stronger, and together our business community will continue to innovate here and affect change globally.”
