Since Valerie Rossi founded the Azimuth Corporation with just herself and two part-time employees back in 2001, we have remained steadfast in our mission to offer innovative solutions while serving our customers. Azimuth Corporation’s goal-oriented work ethic has positioned us as leaders. Through it all, we have remained persistent and responsive, capable of rapidly responding to operating environment dynamics and changing requirements from our customers.

Just 10 years after those humble beginnings in 2001, Azimuth was honored as one of Inc. 5000’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies. We established our first office in Washington, D.C., in 2013, solidifying our presence there with a project management office to manage the multiple projects won over the previous two years.
By the time we rolled out a complete rebranding in 2018, reflecting our growing company and commitment to solving national security problems, Azimuth’s annual revenue had increased to $21.6 million. We demonstrated the responsive work ethic at the heart of all we do during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Our employees felt supported during a time of uncertainty thanks to our corporate response.
Today, we celebrate Azimuth’s 20th anniversary with a look back on our growth over the past two decades. At the same time, we look forward to another 20 years of success.
How Far Azimuth Corporation Has Come
Azimuth Corporation has enjoyed a range of significant accomplishments over time. We have built diverse capabilities while gaining the ability to compete with larger companies. We have expanded into new regions and brought in new customers, with significant expansion into the Washington, D.C., market highlighting our growth through the past 20 years. All the while, we have maintained the core customer relationships upon which the company was founded. For example, we continue to serve our very first customer, AFRL, demonstrating how the company successfully adapts to changes in customers’ missions and needs.
The past 20 years have seen constant change and development in technology, and we have adapted to ongoing technological advancements as well. We adapt by maintaining awareness, including surveying trends and knowing when to make investments to position the company for success. We remain flexible and agile when responding to operating environment factors. Our move from local, dedicated servers to cloud-based enterprise management highlights this flexibility and intelligence when keeping up with technological changes, as the pivot reduces risk while increasing productivity.
An Eye Toward the Next 20 Years of Success
Azimuth’s past achievements position us for continued success over the next 20 years and beyond. Our goals for the next two decades include leveraging our recent momentum and growth to build a stable, robust business, all while keeping a commitment to our customer mission and employee-focused perspective. We will strive to double the size of the company to $40 million and continue to develop Azimuth intellectual property technology.
We’ll aim to expand our market share with key customers, becoming AI/ML and Insider Threat (UAM) specialists. We will also position the company as a regional leader in delivering solutions to Department of Defense customers. We’ll do this by providing innovative solutions through continuous improvement and growth.
Azimuth Corporation has come a long way since our founding 20 years ago. Our past success lays the foundation for even greater accomplishments.
