Reston, VA, October 6, 2018 – 1Rivet, a northern Virginia consulting firm specializing in strategic information technology consulting, outsourced services and talent acquisition, has been named one of the Top 75 Fastest Growing Firms for 2018 by The Washington Business Journal.

“We grew by retaining 100% of our current customers while adding clients seeking rapid IT M&A, complex systems integrations, custom application creation and implementations, data analytics and data migrations using best-in-class on- and offshore talent,” said CEO Eric Middleton.

1Rivet also saw demand increase in 2018 for cloud services, especially Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure. “We delivered strategic advice on moving applications to the cloud and evaluating cloud development tools that aren’t available on premise,” Middleton said.

While 1Rivet is a local company, it’s reach extended globally in 2018 when the company won contracts to develop a Public Works Platform, which African governments will employ to enhance revenue collection from value-added goods, imports and exports.

“New clients came to us in 2018 because they want a niche player with the same skills as the big players, but without the high price tag,” Middleton said
