KPMG will add more than 500 jobs as the audit and tax advisory firm launches a $30 million expansion of its Fairfax County offices, Gov. Ralph Northam and company officials announced Tuesday.

“With nearly 2,000 employees across Fairfax County, KPMG is an invaluable contributor to the regional economy, and we are honored that a corporate services provider of this caliber has chosen to grow in Virginia,” said Governor Northam in a news release.

The company is excited about the region’s growth in “world-class innovation and leading-edge technology,” said Jerry Carlson, who oversees KPMG professionals in the Washington Metro area, including the offices in Tysons Corner.

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Fairfax County to secure the company’s expansion, with a $1 million grant from the state’s Opportunity Fund.

The company will also be eligible to receive the Major Business Facility Job Tax Credit for new full-time jobs created.

“KPMG has been a major employer and corporate citizen in Fairfax County for years, and we are delighted to see that the company has chosen the county as a base to expand its audit, tax and advisory business significantly,” said Gerald L. Gordon, president and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority.
