Fairfax, VA – May 4, 2009 – Customer Value Partners (CVP), an award-winning business and IT consultancy, today announced that the Virginia Chamber of Commerce has named them to the Virginia FANTASTIC 50 for the third year running. CVP has not only maintained tremendous growth, but also continues to invest in programs to foster entrepreneurship in the region.
“We applaud the entrepreneurial spirit of the strong growth companies in our region and are honored to be counted among them. Fast growth means the need for agility, keeping costs down, and investing in the future, regardless of economic factors, in order to serve our clients’ needs in innovative ways, as well as add to the regional economic base,” remarked Anirudh Kulkarni, Managing Principal of CVP. The winning companies were saluted at the annual awards banquet held at the Westfields Marriott in Chantilly on April 30th.
