KPMG LLP, a tax, audit and advisory firm, is shifting part of its Washington, D.C., operations to Tysons Corner, Va.
The opening of the new office will be bringing roughly about 375 jobs to the area.
Candy Duncan, managing partner for KPMG’s Washington Metropolitan area, explained Tysons Corner was an obvious choice. She said, “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.”
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership and Fairfax County Economic Development Agency offered incentives for securing the project for Virginia, including a $250,000 grant from the Governor’s Opportunity Fund to provide training assistance through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
