Metis is the passion project of Brian Morris. As a comfortable INTJ, Brian has always had a desire to put on his analytical lenses to help others. After graduation he put in long hours at this first job to help his coworkers determine the success of their day's work by creating KPIs and a reporting dashboard. By placing an emphasis on the end result, Brian would constantly look for opportunities to improve processes and produce successful results.
After quickly transitioning his career into the marketing realm, this same passion translated fluidly into the digital advertising vertical. Over the last 10 years in his professional career, clients have been included everything from well-known corporations and personalities to small local businesses attempting to enter the social media foray for the first time. Work has ranged from simple Facebook advertising to $60MM enterprise-level marketing accounts. In fact, Brian worked with Google to develop two case studies and even presented at Google NYC headquarters.
No matter the size, type, or intent of the client, Metis has always had a passion to leave organizations more efficient and successful than where they were found. Originally started in 2014 as an agency of 6 founding members, Metis has shifted its focus from providing ongoing full-service marketing assistance to its current model of helping its clients through consulting. Over his career Brian has seen a gap in the marketing space. This gap uniquely identifies the need for businesses to own their plan for marketing. By owning this plan, businesses have the freedom and flexibility to pursue marketing assistance only when they need or want it. Metis exists to see your passion grow.
Our passion is to see your passion grow. Learn what that means in this short video.
Founder & marketing expert
Originally hailing from Pennsylvania, I moved down to attend college and simply never left. I earned my undergraduate degree in finance, then my MBA. Despite never pursuing my intended career as an attorney, I had the opportunity to learn a vast number of skills before landing in the field of marketing.
On the personal side, I live in Lynchburg, Virginia with my wife, son, and our family dog. I'm an avid sports fan who follows the Yankees, Giants, Manchester City, and Duke. If I'm not spending time with my family or watching sports, I'm probably reading. If for no other reason, drop me a line to say hi as I am always interested in making a friend or talking business.
