NuAxis Innovations Recognized for Growth by Virginia Chamber of Commerce, Washington Business Journal, and Govini

When Lindsey Tepp started working at NuAxis Innovations right after college graduation in 2009, the company had only two contracts and no more than 30 employees.

“Raza [Latif, COO] and Imran [Akram, CEO] had a vision for NuAxis and laid out a plan to position us for growth and expansion – one proposal at a time,” said Tepp, now manager of business development (and one of 350 employees) at NuAxis, a fast-growing leader of government IT infrastructure. “I remember our first big win came on Christmas Eve that first year I started and really confirmed all of our hard work and the potential for growth and success.”

Seven years later, Tepp has come a long way – and so has NuAxis: the company was awarded a Fantastic 50 Award and named one of the fastest-growing companies in the commonwealth by the Virginia Chamber of Commerce.

All 50 awardees were announced at the Fantastic 50 Networking Reception and Awards Banquet last night (April 28 at 6 p.m.) in Chantilly, Va. at the Westfields Marriott. The award is in its 21st year of celebrating entrepreneurial success and winners’ contributions to Virginia’s economic vitality. Based on four-year total growth rates, NuAxis is number #46 across all service categories.

“We are thrilled to be recognized as one of Virginia’s fastest growing companies,” said Akram. “NuAxis has been expanding rapidly and it is an honor to be included in the list with other successful businesses from around the commonwealth.”

NuAxis was also named one of the largest government contractors and a top minority-owned business of 2015 by the Washington Business Journal and a Significant Mover by Govini this year. Leadership attributes the company’s growth to hiring the right people with the right potential over the last half decade as well as a focus on the maturation of back-office infrastructure and business development processes.

“As we continue to grow, we are hiring the best of the best and hope to provide our services at an exponential rate to government agencies across the nation,” said Latif. “We mapped out what we wanted to do and then mapped out our growth to reach those goals.”

Since its founding in 2002, NuAxis has acquired 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 their Customer Support Center and Managed Desktop Support.

NuAxis Innovations Partners with the National Forest Foundation to Celebrate Employees

Five years ago, NuAxis Innovations had 40 employees. Today they have more than 350. To celebrate this growth and Earth Day 2016, NuAxis is implementing a tree planting initiative. NuAxis will partner with the National Forest Foundation this Earth Day to celebrate its employees. The company will donate a tree for every existing employee and every new hire.

NuAxis is proud of its long-standing contract with the National Park Service and is happy to support its mission of improving the environment while honoring employees.
