Guidehouse, a management consulting company serving the public and commercial sectors, will invest $12.7 million to establish a global headquarters operation at Tysons Corner in Fairfax County, Virginia. The project is expected to create more than 900 new jobs.
The company’s new campus at 1676 International Drive will accommodate recent growth and an increased demand for services, and will house more than 1,550 employees at full capacity.
“Guidehouse is proud to announce our new corporate headquarters in Tysons Corner, Fairfax County’s largest business district,” said Scott McIntyre, CEO of Guidehouse. “This move will allow us to best accommodate growth, serve our people and clients, and attract talent. Virginia offers a highly skilled workforce and business-friendly climate, making it an ideal location for Guidehouse’s future.”
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) worked with the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority to secure the project for the Commonwealth and will support Guidehouse’s job creation through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program, which provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs in order to support employee recruitment and training activities.
“Fairfax County offers the location, talent pipeline, and access to decision-makers that global providers like Guidehouse are seeking, and we are pleased to welcome the company’s headquarters operation to Virginia,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Brian Ball. “We are confident the Commonwealth will provide an ideal location for Guidehouse to thrive, and we look forward to a continuing partnership with the company.”
As a business incentive supporting economic development, VJIP reduces the human resource costs of new and expanding companies. VJIP is state-funded, demonstrating Virginia’s commitment to enhancing job opportunities for citizens. The company is also eligible to receive benefits from the Major Business Facility Job Tax Credit for new, full-time jobs created.
“The Guidehouse leadership team had any number of choices to consider for the firm’s global headquarters, so it speaks volumes that they chose Fairfax County,” said Victor Hoskins, President and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority. “A headquarters in Tysons Corner puts the company in the center of the largest business hub in the D.C. region and a talent pool that will be able to enjoy the growing number of amenities in the area.”
