Blackwater Relocates Headquarters to D.C.

By Associated Press, Published: July 26

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

Xe Services said Tuesday that 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.
