Fortreum Establishes Loudoun County, Virginia, Headquarters

Fortreum, LLC, a Virginia-founded cloud computing and cybersecurity advisory company, plans to establish its headquarters in Loudoun County, Virginia. The $125,000 project is expected to create 53 jobs.

“Having been long-time Virginia residents, Loudoun County was our first choice because of the strong technology ecosystem and a diverse cybersecurity workforce within the Northern Virginia technology hub, as well as the collaborative relationship we’ve enjoyed with the state, county, and respective universities,” said James Leach, Fortreum CEO. “As we look to expand significantly, we determined this area provided the best opportunity for exponential business growth.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) worked with Loudoun County to secure the project for Virginia and will support Fortreum’s job creation through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP), which provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs in order to support employee recruitment and training activities. 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.

“We are proud that this Virginia-founded company will deepen its roots by establishing a headquarters facility in Loudoun County,” noted Secretary of Commerce and Trade Caren Merrick. “Northern Virginia offers the location, infrastructure, and world-class talent to catalyze the growth of technology businesses like Fortreum, and we thank the company for creating 53 new jobs.”

“Fortreum is a valued and respected leader in the Loudoun cybersecurity community,” added Buddy Rizer, executive director of the Loudoun County Department of Economic Development. “We are excited to see the continued growth that results from this jobs investment incentive and look forward to working with Fortreum’s stellar team to further build their #LoudounPossible success story.”

Fortreum specializes in delivering comprehensive cybersecurity and cloud support services, with a strong emphasis on regulatory compliance and technical validations. The company’s cyber expertise is tailored to meet the specific needs of businesses operating in targeted industries across both public and private sectors.
