Vienna, VA – March 5, 2013 — MicroTech President and CEO Tony Jimenez was named one of the 50 Most Influential Virginians by Virginia Business. Described as a ‘rundown of people with clout in the commonwealth’ and compiled by the staff of Virginia Business, the 50 Most Influential Virginians highlights the who’s who of Virginia and how they are exercising their influence in several spheres to shape issues and determine outcomes.
Tony, whose management philosophy is to "always lead from the front, set good examples and never forget the people that helped you achieve your goals," was recognized for his achievements with MicroTech as one of the country's fastest growing Technology Integrators and his involvement on several executive-level advisory boards, including the U.S. Department of Commerce Advisory Board and the George Mason University Board of Visitors.
"It is truly an honor to be chosen as one of the 50 Most Influential Virginians, alongside so many stellar peers," Jimenez said. "It is gratifying to know that our contributions are making a difference in our great State. This honor speaks highly of MicroTech’s culture, which has always encouraged innovation, team work and community service."
MicroTech provides Technology Services, Network Systems Integration, Product Solutions, Cloud Computing, Unified Communications & Collaboration, Cyber Security, Mobility, and Big Data Solutions as well as leadership/management skills courses, business simulations and vital industry certifications as part of MicroTech University to commercial enterprises, along with the public sector — managing more than half-a-million technology users daily. A prime contractor of over 100 Federal projects and more-than-25 procurement vehicles, MicroTech offers access to 2500 vendors and a million technology products and services across the government.
A list excluding the obvious college president and politician influentials acknowledges those who have used their pull to build successful businesses and impact ventures involving higher education, transportation, economic development, the arts, philanthropy, health care, and energy. All of the influential Virginians are distinguished as having a strong network and the knack to do both good business, and good for the community.
An impressive list composed of philanthropists and creative innovators who have left their mark as trailblazers in Virginia is rounded out by other influential thought leaders, including Ted Leonsis, founder, chairman and majority owner of Monumental Sports & Entertainment; Ralph Shrader, Chairman, CEO, and President of Booz Allen Hamilton in McLean, VA; Wesley Bush, Chairman, President and CEO of Northrop Grumman Corporation; and Steve Case, co-founder and former CEO of America Online (AOL) and current Chairman and CEO of Revolution.
