KPMG to bring more jobs to No. Va.

By Washington Post editors

The audit and tax firm KPMG said Tuesday it would expand its operations in Northern Virginia, bringing an additional 375 jobs to the region.

Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell (R) announced the expansion, which includes the consolidation of operations in a facility on International Drive in Tysons Corner.

"KPMG’s decision to expand its presence in Virginia is a significant accomplishment for the commonwealth," McDonnell said. "Fairfax County offered KPMG close proximity to its existing operations in northern Virginia and to customers in the mid-Atlantic region, and the ability to attract a qualified and experienced workforce."

Candy Duncan, the managing partner for KPMG’s Washington area operations, said Tysons was "the best fit" in part because of the company's growing customer base in Virginia. A new chairman and chief executive, John Veihmeyer, was appointed to lead the firm in March.

The Virginia Governor's Opportunity Fund, a public program used to lure business to the state, provided a $250,000 grant to KPMG and the Virginia Department of Business Assistance will provide training assistance through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
