Growing Contracts, Team Spurs Company’s Move into Larger Chantilly Headquarters
CHANTILLY, Va., Dec. 10, 2007 — Citizant, one of the capital area’s fastest-growing providers of business and technical solutions to civilian and military government organizations, today began operating from its new headquarters at 5180 Parkstone Dr., Suite 100 in Chantilly, Va. The company’s new 21,295-square-foot office space is more than 50 percent larger than its previous Chantilly headquarters and will support the company’s strategic plan for continued growth.
“The need for this new facility underscores an aggressive growth strategy that is fueled by strong demand from customers for innovative and effective solutions to meet their mission-critical requirements. It is our dedicated staff that allows us to deliver these solutions,” said Citizant co-founder and president Alba M. Alemán.
As the company prepares to close out 2007, results indicate that it will be another successful chapter in the company’s history of growth. Citizant won new contracts with the Department of Defense, Department of Health & Human Services, Federal Trade Commission and U.S. Transportation Command. New task orders were received from a variety of Citizant’s existing customers, including the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the U.S. Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center and the Federal Railroad Administration.
“The move to our new facility marks another milestone in Citizant’s rapid growth history,” said co-founder and CEO Raymond Roberts. “Since the company was founded nearly a decade ago, we have established a niche in the federal government consulting market by assembling a team of outstanding professionals who deliver a personalized approach to government service.”
To tackle its new assignments, Citizant hired 60 employees in 2007 to work on both customer programs and corporate services.
“In order to meet our goal of helping government serve the citizen, we recruit the most talented and committed employees and provide them with an environment and workspace that enables them to achieve results,” added Alemán.
The interior of Citizant’s new headquarters facility was designed to encourage collaboration among its teams and reflect the personality of its new brand, which was launched earlier this year. Citizant specializes in providing forward-thinking solutions to help defense and civilian government agencies create a better future for the citizen. The company’s new brand identity highlights the organization’s passion for supporting the primary mission of its government customers – service to the citizen.
“Armed with 32 consecutive quarters of growth, a robust and referenceable customer base and a track record of innovative results, Citizant is well positioned to continue this momentum through 2008 and beyond,” added Roberts.
This office expansion follows the opening of a Citizant office near the new Washington Nationals stadium on M Street SE in Washington, D.C. and the addition of new senior executives, including former Computer Sciences Corporation partner Donna Ragley, as group vice president of Operations, and AOL veteran Bruce Milligan as vice president of marketing.
