Omega Honored at Washington Business Journal's 2023 Fastest Growing Companies Event

FAIRFAX, VA, October 24, 2023 -- Omega World Travel is honored to have made the Washington Business Journal's 2023 list of Fastest Growing Companies in the Greater Washington area. Each year, the WBJ assesses hundreds of exceptional businesses. Rankings are not announced publicly until the event, which took place on October 19th. Of the 50 selected, Omega was positioned as number 34. 

The prestigious event was held at the Ritz-Carlton in Tysons Corner, Virginia, and attended by top industry leaders in a variety of fields including real estate, construction, and travel and hospitality. Each winning company representative was asked to limit their acceptance comments to five key words that describe their achievements in business. Omega's Founder and CEO, Gloria Bohan, shared that Omega's success is made possible through a positive attitude, mentoring, and entrepreneurial spirit. 

During the cocktail reception and dinner, WBJ provided exciting entertainment and networking opportunities. Attendees comprised both well-established and newer DC area companies such as Steampunk Inc., Fedwriters, and The Building People. Many of the representatives noted that their teams' comradery and collective work ethic are integral to their accomplishments. 

Bohan's philosophy is no exception to those qualities. Gloria credits Omega's success to strong team cohesion, employee longevity, innovation, and diverse partnerships.
