About Metier Ltd.

Taskmasters for hire

Metier Ltd. is a leader in predictive project management software and services. The firm covers four main industries, commercial enterprise, systems engineering/consulting, government and defense, and provides services to high-profile clients, including BMW, IBM Global Services and Lockheed Martin, in addition to the FBI, the U.S. Census Bureau, the Department of Agriculture and the Department of Energy. 

The key to success

Metier was founded in 1998 by then-newly married couple Douglas Clark and Sandra Richardson, on the way back from their honeymoon, no less.  If the firm could be said to have a key software, it is WorkLenz, a predictive project management software designed by Clark, which syncs with Microsoft's Outlook email application and helps managers track ongoing (or future) projects.  Metier delivers its technology to private and public sector clients through partnerships with systems integrators and consultants.  In 2005, the company collaborated with Lockheed Martin to create a system for handling the data from the 2010 census, which will be the first that allows people to fill out census forms online.

Multiawarded firm

Inc. magazine has recognized Metier for the last four years as one of the fastest-growing privately held companies on its Inc. 5000 list, and Metier proudly boasts some staggering statistics to back up the claim. 
Metier was a finalist under three categories in the 2008 American Business Awards.  These categories were: Best Overall Company, Best Management Team and Best New Product or Service.  Dubbed as the "business world's own Oscars," the American Business Awards is the only national awards program that honors great business performance in the United States.  Metier was also named a finalist in the 2009 Helios HR Apollo Awards, which gives recognition to Washington-area organizations that promote employee development.  The company was one of only nine finalists in the small business category.  This feat was repeated when Metier was named a finalist in the 2010 Helios HR Apollo Awards.

Coast-to-coast expansion

Driven by rapid demand of Metier's unique services, the company expanded their West Coast operations by opening a site in Santa Rosa, Calif.  Another operations center was opened in the East Coast at Arlington, Va.  The East Coast operations center will serve as the hub for federal sector client support.
