Less than a month after opening its brand new 75,000 square foot headquarters Karsun Solutions celebrated its tenth anniversary. The new office, which houses the organization’s Innovation Center, training facilities and improved amenities, is one symbol of Karsun’s rocketing growth. The firm also won a bevy of awards throughout 2019. This year it received honors for innovation, leadership, and growth, capping off a fantastic first decade.
Repeatedly Recognized for Growth
Karsun Solutions consistently wins awards for year-over-year growth. In August, it ranked for the fifth consecutive year on the Inc. 5000. Companies listed are among the fastest growing private companies in the United States. It also received recognition from the Virginia Chamber of Commerce (Fantastic 50) and Washington Business Journal (Fast 75) for growth this year.
Building a Leadership Legacy
In March, the Washington Business Journal honored Karsun Solutions CEO Sundar Vaidyanathan with its 2019 Minority Business Leader Award. Honorees are among the region’s top 25 minority business leaders. Sundar along with co-founder Kartik Mecheri have lead Karsun throughout this explosive ten year growth period. They both sought opportunities to engage employees as the firm scaled. Together they host monthly Coffee with Leadership events and Orientation Q&A sessions. The innovation team recently launched monthly town halls to inform team members of the latest process improvements at Karsun. In addition to his 2019 award, in 2017 Karsun was recognized by Washington SmartCEO twice, as both a Best-Run organization and Future 50 organization.
Honored for Innovation
Finally, Karsun prides itself on continual reinvestment in innovation. It sponsors an in-house research and development unit, the Karsun Innovation Center. This year it was recognized twice for its innovative spirit. In the spring Karsun was named a finalist for the 2019 Moxie Award. Then this fall the Northern Virginia Technology Council named the organization to its Tech 100 list. This is a list of the most innovative firms in the region. The Innovation Center has a new permanent home and training facility at Karsun’s recently opened Herndon headquarters. The center plans to roll out a number of new initiatives for Karsun employees and the IT community in 2020.
