MicroTech President and CEO, Tony Jimenez, is participating on a distinguished panel this Friday regarding Northern Virginia’s future. Established in 2005, LEAD VIRGINIA is an organization that connects diverse leaders from across Virginia, promoting a statewide perspective, understanding state and regional challenges, assets, and opportunities, while also building a network of informed, engaged and connected leadership to advance the Commonwealth. Jimenez’ selection is based on his company’s tremendous growth in the government contracting arena.
The panel entitled, “The Role of Government Contacting and Impact on Northern Virginia,” will be on Friday, July 20 starting at 10:30 a.m. at the Northrop Grumman Innovation Center in Tyson’s Corner. The discussion is part of LEAD VIRGINIA’s three day Northern Virginia session.
Since the organization describes itself as a “statewide leadership organization focusing on proven leaders,” Jimenez’ extensive experience and proven success record made him an ideal choice to address the audience; and with MicroTech headquartered in Vienna, VA, Jimenez will be able to provide attendees with his personal insights on the panel’s theme.
Bridget Bean, Regional Administrator & Director of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and LEAD Class of 2011 explained Jimenez was right for the job because, “Tony’s perspective on the impact Government contracts played in his phenomenal growth and the subsequent impact on job creation in the northern Virginia area will be valuable to the audience.”
Bean, along with Marcellous Frye, VP Washington Gas and LEAD Class of 2009, will be the curriculum chairs for the event. Other professionals sitting on the panel with Jimenez are John Shoraka, SBA’s Executive Administrator for Government Contracting and Lani Hay, President and CEO of Landmark Technologies.
