Founder and Virginia Tech alumnus Sonu Singh knew there was tremendous untapped talent in rural areas such as Southwest VA. So, in 2009 he founded 1901 Group, a leading provider of IT services and solutions. The #VTCRCexperience is providing resources to help Sonu and other game changers create #10x impact and build buildings at the research park.
In early 2021, Leidos, a FORTUNE® 500 science and technology leader announced the completed acquisition of 1901 Group for approximately $215 million in cash. It will operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Leidos. The acquisition adds nearly 400 IT, cloud and cyber specialists to the Leidos team. This will grow the company’s deep bench of certified technical talent to support customers with their mission-critical needs.
