The Fairfax County Economic Development Authority has established a marketing presence in the Los Angeles area in the wake of major corporate relocations from that area.
The authority has hired Market Diligence Group of Newport Beach, Calif., to work with companies interested in expanding into the Washington, D.C., area, and venture capitalists seeking investment opportunities in Fairfax County.
Mark White and Tom Roberts of Market Diligence Group will lead efforts to market Fairfax County to the Silicon Valley-San Francisco area as well as Southern California.
Hilton Worldwide, CSC, SAIC and Northrop Grumman have all moved their corporate headquarters from California to Fairfax in recent years. The authority opened a California office in the San Francisco area in 2006, but decided to move its California office to Los Angeles because of interest from that area.
