Gov. Ralph Northam announced today that Kreative Technologies, LLC, a leader in information systems design, development, integration, and sustainment for the federal healthcare industry, will invest $1.5 million to expand its operation at 4114 Legato Road in Fairfax County. The company will more than quadruple its current workforce of 67 with the creation of 296 new jobs.
Kreative Technologies is a small disadvantaged, SBA 8(a) certified company founded in Virginia in 2013. The company’s goal is to deliver sound information systems and security management with focused efforts within the federal healthcare industry. Kreative’s software engineers have experience in designing and implementing enterprise solutions for both commercial and federal environments. The company prides itself on being subject-matter experts on computing technology, both from a hardware and software perspective, and having a wealth of knowledge for arenas including healthcare, finance, defense, civilian and commercial markets.
“At Kreative Technologies, we are constantly striving to meet our customers’ missions by transforming their vision into reality, and we empower our clients to shape the future by cultivating creativity and harnessing the power of technology,” said Kreative CEO Adnan Karimi. “Located in the heart of Fairfax, it is critical to our ongoing collaboration to be close to our customer base.
Kreative upgraded to an 11,000 square foot facility that was completed in early 2020. These additions will allow Kreative to deliver even more customer-centric solutions in a region recognized for innovation and dedication to technology.
“We are delighted to see Kreative Technologies expanding so significantly, because its focus on secure information systems and health IT is a perfect match for the tech-talent pipeline that we are attracting and growing in Fairfax County and Northern Virginia,” said Victor Hoskins, president and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority. “We are proud of this vote of confidence in our business climate.”
“The region is well known for being a hub for tech-savvy talent, both ready and able to take-on the challenges of tomorrow,” Karimi said. “Kreative has been and will continue to be a proud employer of this profound community. As we continue on our business growth trajectory, we anticipate an expansion in our home-base through acquisitions and growing our exceptional relationships with our current clients, while engaging superior talent as a Virginia employer.”
The company is based in the Springfield District of the County. “I want to thank Kreative Technologies for their investment in the Springfield District and Fairfax County and for their recognition that we have the talent and business environment they need to grow,” said Fairfax County Supervisor Pat Herrity (Springfield District). “Kreative is an exciting company that is well-positioned to be an industry-leader and an important part of our innovation economy.”

Northam. “We are thrilled that Kreative Technologies will be increasing its workforce substantially with nearly 300 new jobs in Fairfax County, where the company will continue to benefit from the dynamic tech talent pipeline in Northern Virginia.”
