Gov. Bob McDonnell recently announced the appointment of MicroTech President and CEO Anthony R. “Tony” Jimenez to Mason’s Board of Visitors (BOV). Jimenez fills the seat vacated by David-Imad Ramadan when he was elected to the Virginia House of Delegates.

Jimenez retired from the U.S. Army as a lieutenant colonel and a decorated combat veteran after 24 years of service. During his military career, he served as the program director of eArmyU, an educational portal and virtual university.

Since founding MicroTech in 2004, Jimenez has grown the business into a profitable quarter-billion-dollar company with more than 450 professionals in 30 states. The company supports more than 100 contracts and 28 procurement vehicles with key civilian agencies and service branches in the public sector.

Jimenez serves on the boards of Living Classrooms Foundation; United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce; UBM Channel; and The American Legion. He is the former national chairman of the Latinos in Information Sciences and Technology Association.

He is an advisor to the Obama administration on the U.S. Department of Commerce National Advisory Council on Minority Business Enterprise. He has testified before Congress on veteran-owned businesses and small-business issues and also consulted with the Presidential Economic Recovery Advisory Board on education.

Jimenez earned a BS in business management from St. Mary’s University in Texas, an MA in computers and information systems from Webster University in Missouri and an MS in acquisition management from Florida Institute of Technology.
