Applied Insight, a company that designs solutions to help the federal government solve tech problems, has moved its headquarters from Ashburn to Tysons Corner, Va., while also making key hires to its leadership team.

This announcement comes after the company recently acquired Maryland-based companies Applied Technology Group (ATG) and Stratus Solutions, growing to 500 employees and $140 million in revenue, Technical.ly DC previously reported.

“Following our recent acquisitions, these are important steps in our process of intelligent integration,” Applied Insight CEO John Hynes said in a statement. “With this new leadership team, we benefit from the diverse ideas and experience of people who’ve worked in our sector for a long time, including those who’ve recently joined through acquisition, along with some new additions.”

Hynes will lead the new executive team that’s a culmination of team members within the company being promoted to new roles and other new team members from the businesses Applied Insight recently acquired. The tech solutions company made employment upgrades to its business, corporate support and innovation departments to support its continuing growth.
