CenterState CEO Economic Champion

Metis Consulting Group

Metis Consulting Group is a woman-owned, Disability-Owned Business Enterprise (DOBE), certified B Corp, and New York State Public Benefit Corporation. In addition to custom software development, database architecture and marketing technology integration, Metis offers management consulting expertise including social impact-oriented organizational development, training and facilitation services. Metis is committed to sustainable economic development as a primary driver of positive social change, conducting business as a force for good.

In a year of extensive challenges, Metis redoubled its commitment to its founding principles of justice, equity, diversity and inclusion. With these core values as its north star, Metis formally certified as a DOBE, and in honor of this achievement welcomed David’s Refuge to share donated office space in Metis’ Manlius-based headquarters. David’s Refuge, a local nonprofit that provides respite, resources and support to parents and guardians of children with special needs or life-threatening medical conditions, is just one of the many organizations with whom Metis partners to manifest its commitment as a public benefit corporation. 

In January 2021, Metis was recognized by Real Leaders magazine as a Top Impact Company based on its third-party audited social impact practices and ranking and a “Best for the World” certified B Corp. The 2021 award winners also include game-changers such as Tesla, Unilever, Beyond Meat, Patagonia and 145 other well-respected impact brands of all sizes and from a variety of industries.
