Meet the CEO: ANTHONY (Tony) R. JIMENEZ
Tony Jimenez is a Retired Army Officer and a Service-Disabled Veteran with more than 24 years of Active Military Service (holding a top-secret clearance since 1980) and an appointee in both the Bush and Obama administrations. Founded in 2004, MicroTech grew from a kitchen table startup into a profitable half-billion-dollar company with skilled professionals in more than 40 states supporting more than 100 prime contracts with civilian and defense agencies of the Federal Government and providing IT and network support to numerous Fortune 500 companies around the globe. In 2014, 2015, 2019, and again in 2021 Jimenez sold several large cognizable business units and a wholly-owned subsidiary. These sales allowed MicroTech to recertify as a Small Business (SB) with the SBA as well as recertify and verify its status as a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) with the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs and maintain its SB status and SDVOSB status heading into 2022.
Several national organizations have honored MicroTech by adding them to their fastest-growing privately held company lists including Inc. Magazine, Deloitte, Washington Technology, SmartCEO, Washington Business Journal, CRN, Digital Software Magazine, and CIO Bulletin just to name a few. Prior to selling its business units and downsizing MicroTech, Hispanic Business Magazine selected MicroTech as one of the 25 largest Hispanic-owned Businesses in the Nation.
In recognition of his achievements, Jimenez has been named “Executive of the Year,” “Most Influential Hispanic in IT,” “Entrepreneur of the Year,” “Top 10 Leader”, “Small Business Person of the Year,” and “CEO of the Year” by several national organizations. Jimenez has also been recognized as one of the “Most Influential Hispanics in the Nation” by Hispanic Business Magazine, one of the “Most Powerful Minority Men in Business” by the Minority Enterprise Executive Council, and “One of the 100 Most Innovative Entrepreneurs in the Nation” by Goldman Sachs. Jimenez was named one of the “50 Most Influential Virginians” by Virginia Business and Federal Computer Week selected Tony three times as a “Federal 100,” one of the Top 100 Executives from Government, Industry, and Academia who have had the greatest impact on Government Information Systems, once as a Government Employee and twice as a CEO. Additionally, Inc. Magazine inducted Tony into its prestigious Inc. 500 Hall of Fame for making its Inc. 500 listing for five consecutive years. The Association for Federal Information Resources Management (AFFIRM) also selected Tony for its Executive Leadership Award, which is considered to be the highest and most prestigious AFFIRM award for members of the Intelligence Community and the Department of Defense.
