After sealing the deal on Amazon.com Inc.’s $2.5 billion East Coast HQ2 headquarters as Arlington’s economic development director in late 2018, Victor Hoskins took his talents to the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA) in August 2019.

But instead of competing with his Northern Virginia neighbors when he took the helm in Fairfax, Hoskins has made it his goal to bring sturdy economic development projects — as well as recovery initiatives — to the entire region.

Well before COVID-19 hit, Hoskins in 2019 started working with 10 Northern Virginia jurisdictions to forge the Northern Virginia Economic Development Alliance, aimed at promoting economic development cooperation across localities and helping the region better compete for large projects such as HQ2.
