LEESBURG, Va.– AM LLC (AM) – a Virginia-based government solutions company with business lines in National Security, Public Health, and Health IT – secured the top spot in Washington Business Journal‘s annual corporate ranking for DC’s Fastest Growing Company. AM recorded a commanding 336.27% average annual growth over the past three years and was recognized during the October awards ceremony along with 49 of the fastest growing companies across the DMV region.
Recognizing the urgency for a well-trained public health workforce as COVID ravaged Wuhan, China, in early 2020, AM developed a Strike-team model to support historically underfunded state and local health departments across the United States.
The company’s COVID services matured over a short period of time to include vaccine management & quality assurance, disease surveillance, and additional core public health functions. As the virus evolved and society’s focus shifted to “Return to Normal”, so did AM – launching a targeted K-12 School Health program in 2021 that was designed to keep schools open, teachers teaching, and students learning.
Former CDC Director and AM Senior Medical Advisor Dr. Robert Redfield commended the achievement, noting: “AM provided a critical solution during a time of national importance. While this award recognizes the company’s tremendous business accomplishment, it’s most important to note that their public-private partnerships saved lives.”
