AOC Solutions Chosen as 2015 Future 50 Award Winner by Washington SmartCEO


Recognized for their fast growth in greater Washington region

Chantilly, Va. (Jan. 26, 2015) — AOC Solutions announced that it has been chosen as one of Washington SmartCEO’s 2015 Future 50 award winners. The Future 50 program recognizes the greater Washington region’s 50 fastest-growing mid-sized companies, five small Emerging Growth companies and five large Blue Chip companies that have experienced outsized growth based on a combined three-year average of revenue and employee growth.

Along with other winners, AOC will be recognized in the 2015 January/February issue of Washington SmartCEO magazine and celebrated at an awards ceremony on Jan. 27, 2015, at the Sheraton Premiere at Tysons Corner. Follow the event on Twitter: @SmartCEO #Future50.

Founded in 1996, AOC Solutions is the brainchild of President and CEO Allen O. Cage, Jr., who saw an opportunity in the marketplace to develop a platform for streamlining commercial payments. “Having a vision is only part of the story of our success,” says Cage. “Hiring the right people to make the vision a reality is just as important.” AOC started with a very small team and has grown to a company of more than 200 employees.

The Future 50 Awards program kicked off with an application process ending September 2014. More than 550 local business executives and guests are expected to attend this year’s black-tie- optional gala on Jan. 27 to celebrate the winners and their achievements. The event will start off with a cocktail reception and networking followed by an awards ceremony and seated dinner. Guests will then have the opportunity to partake in additional networking and enjoy dessert as the evening and event conclude.
