Former Blackwater company moves headquarters to VA

Associated Press at Sacramento Bee  July 25, 2011

ARLINGTON, Va. — The global security company once known as Blackwater is moving its corporate headquarters from North Carolina to Arlington, Va.

Xe Services says 20 people will move from Moyock, N.C., to Arlington to foster relationships with customers in and around Washington.

While the company’s executive leadership will be based in Arlington, the 7,000-acre training facility in Moyock will also have an executive presence. Xe Services also has training facilities in Groton, Conn., and San Diego and a permanent 10-acre operating base in Kabul, Afghanistan.

Under the Blackwater name, the firm provided guards and services to the U.S. government in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere. It drew harsh criticism from members of Congress and others after a 2007 shooting in Baghdad that killed 17 people.
