Phone2Action Plans Operations Center In Arlington County, Virginia
"We are thrilled to accept the invitation of Virginia to bring our headquarters to this dynamic state,” said Ximena Hartsock and Jeb Ory, Co-Founders of Phone2Action. “Virginia and Arlington attract a top-notch talent pool that our company needs to continue leading the digital transformation of advocacy. Virginia's investment package and business-friendly ecosystem demonstrate understanding of the kind of support high-growth tech companies need to thrive. We are proud to be part of the transformation of Rosslyn into a smart city and in helping it become the technology hub of the East Coast."
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Arlington County to secure the project for Virginia. The company is eligible to receive $127,800 in funding and services to support its employee training activities, which is provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
Governor Terry McAuliffe said, “I am delighted to welcome another thriving, entrepreneurial tech company to Northern Virginia. The Commonwealth offers many advantages to technology firms. From our skilled, high-tech workforce to our IT infrastructure and quality-of-life assets, Virginia continues to be recognized nationally in the technology industry. We are proud that a high-caliber company like Phone2Action has selected Arlington County for its new home, and are confident they will benefit from this region’s assets.”
“I am thrilled that Phone2Action has chosen Arlington County to relocate its operation and create 142 new tech-related jobs,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Maurice Jones. “Not only will Phone2Action benefit from Northern Virginia’s superior business environment, but the company’s focus on social innovation and civic engagement will also be valuable to the region and the Commonwealth. I wish the company success in its new home, and look forward to working with it in the future.”
