Loudoun Economic Development`s Executive Director Buddy Rizer is named to the @washingtonianmag`s #TechTitans list for the 6th straight year!

Rizer’s success in enticing data centers to #LoudounCounty has helped shape the area as a technology hub with a thriving business ecosystem, but Rizer still sees work to be done.

“When you reach the size we have, it’s important to have a balanced economy,” he says. “You don’t want all your eggs in one basket.”

The 2022 Tech Titans list featured “the 225 most innovative and important people in DC’s tech scene right now”, which included a vibrant mix of #entrepreneurs, investors, lobbyists, early-stage CEOs, non-profit leaders, government officials, and big business movers and shakers.
