FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va.  – Hilton Hotels is planning significant upgrades and adding 350 new jobs at its headquarters in Fairfax County, Va.,

“Northern Virginia has been Hilton’s home for more than a decade, and the region has played an instrumental role in helping us create the best, most inclusive home for our team members while also managing the demands of a global business,” says Chris Nassetta, president and CEO, Hilton. “We appreciate the continued support of the Commonwealth of Virginia, Fairfax County, and the Tysons Partnership in ensuring we continue to attract strong, diverse talent to our vibrant, growing region.”

Hilton located its global headquarters in Fairfax County in 2009 and plans to create 350 new headquarters jobs over the next five years.

“I am thrilled that Hilton, a valued corporate citizen, is maintaining its headquarters and expanding its workforce here. This is a validation of the strong economy we enjoy here in Fairfax County,” says Fairfax County board of supervisors chairman Jeffrey C. McKay. “We have demonstrated time and again that business-friendly policies go hand-in-hand with the high quality of life here, maintaining Fairfax County’s status as the premiere destination for starting, moving, or expanding your company.”

Hilton currently employs approximately 800 people at its headquarters location in McLean.

“Hilton’s continued investment in Fairfax County will result in extraordinary benefits for our community,” said Victor Hoskins, president and CEO of Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA). “The diversity of our business base continues to be one of our greatest strengths, and we are honored that Hilton has chosen to continue to play a key role in our corporate ecosystem.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with the FCEDA to secure the project for Virginia. Gov. Glenn Youngkin approved $5 million in funds from the Virginia Economic Development Incentive Grant for the project, as well as a $1 million grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund. The company is eligible to receive benefits from the Major Business Facility Job Tax Credit for new, full-time jobs created. Funding and services to support the company’s employee training activities will be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.

“Virginia is America’s hometown for corporate headquarters, and we are proud that Hilton will continue to call Fairfax County home,” said Youngkin. “For more than a decade, this global company has benefited from the Commonwealth’s combination of strategic location;  diverse, world-class talent; and stable business climate, and we look forward to a continued partnership as Hilton recommits to Virginia and reinvents its headquarters for the future.”
