DSFederal was delighted to be selected for inclusion in the "Rockville Works for Me" campaign sponsored by Rockville Economic Development, Inc. (REDI). Working with local business leaders, including campaign sponsor Capital Bank, REDI creates display ads featuring local companies and their contributions to economic vitality in Rockville. The ad appears in the Montgomery County Local Living section of today's Washington Post. DSFederal was born and raised in and around Rockville; CEO Sophia Parker started the company from her home, and her "office" was a table at the Bethesda Barnes and Noble's coffee shop, As the company grew, it established residence in a small office in Gaithersburg, then transitioned into slightly larger Rockville offices until finally moving into its current home in the heart of Rockville's tech corridor on Research Boulevard.
Sophia is passionate about Rockville, and about Montgomery County. "Montgomery County is amazing," she says, noting the area's cultural diversity, its educational and recreational resources, its history, and its natural beauty. "I'm very proud to live and work here, and DSFederal is committed to Montgomery County for the long term. The tech industry, especially, is thriving here, and we're very proud to be a leader of that industry."
With the recent establishment of the Montgomery County Economic Development Corporation and its commitment to making Montgomery County the "economic development engine" of Maryland, business leaders like Sophia are optimistic about the county's future; and after a successful first ten years in Montgomery County, DSFederal is just getting started.
