Parsons Transfers Corporate HQ to Washington Metro Area; Chuck Harrington Quoted

Parsons has decided to transfer its corporate headquarters from Pasadena, Calif., to the Washington, D.C. area in line with the company’s growth efforts in critical infrastructure, intelligence and defense markets.

Chuck Harrington, chairman and CEO of Parsons, said in a statement published Thursday the move seeks to support the company’s concentration of employees in the Washington capital region and is driven by investments, acquisitions and other strategic actions in the past decade.

“Relocating to the Washington region puts us in closer proximity to many of our existing and potential clients, as well as key decision makers who influence policy and funding initiatives across our markets, particularly critical infrastructure,” Harrington added.

Parsons will relocate its headquarters to its existing facility in Centreville, Va., and will keep its presence in California, which is home to more than 1.3K employees.
