Macedon Technologies, an Appian-based solutions and services provider, will invest $1.65 million to expand its corporate headquarters in the Reston community of Fairfax County, VA. The company also considered Texas for the project, which will create 147 new jobs.
“After extensive evaluation of several locations across the United States, Macedon decided that Virginia is the optimal location for our expansion for many reasons,” said Austin Rosenfeld, founder and CEO of Macedon Technologies. “The high quality of living in Northern Virginia and its proximity to Washington, DC helps us to attract and retain top talent. Reston has excellent public transportation, including Metro and two nearby major airports. As a consulting company, easy access to airports is a must. Reston is also rapidly expanding, providing ample housing options for our staff. Another important reason is that we can tap into a great local talent pool from several renowned Virginia universities.”
Founded in 2009, the company will add 12,000 square feet at 11694 Plaza America Drive in Reston to its headquarters operations at 11700 Plaza America Drive.
“Virginia, particularly Northern Virginia, continues to be a national technology leader,” said Gov. Ralph Northam. “Our top-ranked higher education system and world-class workforce attract dynamic tech companies like Macedon to the region. We are pleased that the company has chosen to remain and invest in Virginia and in Fairfax County.”
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA) to secure the project for Virginia and will support the company’s job creation through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP). VJIP provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs in order to support employee recruitment and training activities.
“Macedon’s rapid growth and decision to expand its corporate headquarters in Fairfax County demonstrates Virginia’s leading position in the technology sector,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Brian Ball. “The company is creating jobs of the future in a field that continues to gain momentum in the region and the Commonwealth. We are honored to have Macedon on our corporate roster.”
“I am delighted to see Macedon Technologies growing because it is a perfect fit for Fairfax County and the region,” said Victor Hoskins, FCEDA president and CEO. “The company’s expertise in low-code software applications takes full advantage of the technology skills that our regional workforce has in abundance, and the company’s focus on talent attraction and retention will help it continue to thrive here.”
Macedon Technologies has been active in the local community, spearheading a yearly coat drive for elementary schools and homeless shelters in western Fairfax County.
