Our People

We’re selective, thank you very much. We’re a social company and hire based on network (not just ours, but that of our employees, colleagues, partners, clients, alma maters). We target the energetic creative problem solvers with great overall consulting skills and pair them with subject matter experts that bring domain knowledge to build effective programs.

Consulting Skills

Our consultants are selected based on a set of core skills that are of value to any client on any project in any industry. They quickly grasp challenges, gather and analyze data using a variety of tools and methods, build and obtain buy-in on solutions to address tough problems, author professional deliverables and work products, lead efforts and support efforts, and above all else communicate effectively in a team environment.


Our people bring experience from two primary backgrounds – seasoned consultants that have demonstrated success at top-tier consultancies, and domain experts that provide deep subject matter expertise. Together, these experiences provide the tools for a highly effective project team.


Many clients have come to find that the so-called experts they’re paying top dollar for are really newly minted post-grads, or whatever consultant happens to be available and is in need of a new home. We bring folks with real expertise – validated through successful experiences, industry recognized certifications, graduate degrees, or a combination of all three.

Our team has certifications in IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL), Project Management Professional (PMP), Change Management Advanced Practitioner (CMAP), Agile/SCRUM/SAFE, Technology Business Management (TBM), Specialization in Design Thinking, and more.

Giving Back

Giving back is way more than a hashtag to MetaPhase Consulting.  From the time we had enough people to be considered a team, we have been dedicated to and involved in charitable causes close to our hearts.  Corporate social responsibility is ingrained in our framework and it’s a part of who we are.  We are a small company but giving back isn’t about numbers - it’s about showing up.  And MetaPhase shows up over and over for the organizations we support.
