Five companies headquartered in Tysons and one in the Falls Church area have made this year’s Fortune 500 list.
At #41, Freddie Mac in Tysons nabbed the highest spot of the 11 Fairfax County companies on the list, according to the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA).
The rankings are based on the companies’ 2019 revenue, according to the press release.
The local companies on the list cover a wide variety of industries. “The wide diversity of the industry sectors represented here also is striking, everything from our traditional strengths in IT, aerospace and defense to financial services, hospitality and construction, and that also speaks well for the stability and resiliency of our business base,” Victor Hoskins, FCEDA’s president and CEO, said in the press release.
The Tysons companies on the list include:
- #41 — Freddie Mac
- #96 — Northrop Grumman in the Falls Church area
- #97 — Capital One Financial
- #155 — DXC Technology
- #338 — Hilton Worldwide Holdings
- #450 — Booz Allen Hamilton
“Only a handful of communities can say they are home to 11 Fortune 500 companies. It sends a really strong message from the corporate world that this is a strong, stable, resilient location for headquarters operations,” Hoskins said.
Last year, seven of the 10 Fairfax County companies on the Fortune 500 list were based in the Tysons area.
