KPMG, a audit, tax and advisory firm, is planning to expand its office in Fairfax County by almost 400 positions.
“We're delighted to be expanding in Fairfax County,“ said Candy Duncan, managing partner for KPMG's Washington Metropolitan area. “Tysons was the best fit among the options we considered, in part because our customer base in northern Virginia has grown tremendously in recent years.“
KPMG recently moved to a renovated space at 1676 International Drive in Tysons Corner.
“Any time a company of this caliber expands in our community, it is exceptionally good news,“ said Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D., president and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA)
According to the FCEDA, “the Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with the group to secure the project for Virginia. Governor McDonnell approved a $250,000 grant from the Governor's Opportunity Fund to assist with the project. The Virginia Department of Business Assistance will provide training assistance through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.”
