Ten years as an electrical engineer. Three advanced degrees. Fourteen years as CEO of NuAxis Innovations, a fast-growing IT support contractor for the Federal Government with 29 contracts and 375 employees in 22 states. Imran Akram has led a life full of impressive numbers—all made possible by a 5,328 mile trip from Lahore to London at 15 years old.
This cross-continental road trip from Pakistan to London with his father helped him realize his passion for exploration and learning—motivating him to found his own company, NuAxis Innovations, which today was ranked 457 on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™.
“I was incredibly lucky to have the experience to travel at a young age,” said Akram, CEO of NuAxis Innovations. “It was through these experiences that I realized how important it is to learn about other people and their cultures—ultimately inspiring me to seek new adventures and higher education in the United States. I have been fortunate enough to live here for 29 years and to meet and work with so many great people.”
The 2016 Deloitte Fast 500 is a list of the fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America. NuAxis grew 134 percent between 2012 and 2015, the period considered for this year’s award.
NuAxis has seen rapid growth over the past few years, acquiring a significant portfolio of contracts with the federal government. It holds a long-standing contract with the Department of Labor (NuAxis provides the department’s Enterprise Service Desk) and multiple contracts supporting the Department of Interior with its Customer Support Center and Managed Desktop Support.
“It is an honor to be included as part of this prestigious list and to be recognized for the hard work and dedication of our team,” said Akram. “We take a lot of pride in providing innovative solutions to the federal government and hope to continue growing in the federal space.”
NuAxis was recently named one of the largest government contractors and a top minority-owned business by the Washington Business Journal, listed on the Inc. 5000 and the Virginia Fantastic 50 and named a Significant Mover by Govini.
