FAIRFAX, Virginia – April 27, 2017 Concept Plus, LLC is pleased to announce that it has been selected as one of the recipients of the Virginia Chamber of Commerce’s Fantastic 50 Award for 2017. The program recognizes Virginia’s 50 fastest-growing companies. This is the third consecutive year that Concept Plus has been honored by the Virginia Chamber of Commerce and this year was ranked 9th out of 50 top companies in the state.

Concept Plus has achieved exceptional growth over the past few years. This growth was fueled by contract work with the Defense Health Agency, Department of Veteran Affairs and several national security agencies where Concept Plus provides full lifecycle application development and maintenance support.

“It is exciting to be ranked so high within this prestigious group of Virginia’s top 50 companies,” said Concept Plus, LLC CEO Ahmad Abuzaakouk. “A huge thank you to the Concept Plus team who are committed every day to helping our customers improve the way they do business by enabling their technology investments.”

The 2017 Fantastic 50 winners must be privately held and headquartered in Virginia as well as demonstrate positive revenue growth and net income in its most recent fiscal year and previous year. This impressive group will be recognized in Virginia Business magazine in May, and was celebrated at an awards ceremony on April 27th at the Westfields Marriott in Chantilly, VA.

“We know that companies will grow and expand where they have the skilled workforce to support their mission,” said Barry DuVal, president and CEO of the Virginia Chamber of Commerce. “We are glad to toast the entrepreneurial spirit of these Virginia business leaders and the dedicated employees who have brought these companies continued success.”

More than 400 local business executives and guests attended this year’s awards dinner to celebrate the winners and their achievements. The evening consisted of cocktails, networking, award presentations, and dinner to celebrate Virginia’s best and brightest.
