Our goal at Meta is to provide world class service to clients while at the same time offering team members a progressive, diverse, energetic culture focused on knowledge leadership and experience.
Ed founded Meta in 2000 after he recognized a need in the marketplace for a new kind
of consulting firm focused on client success through combined leadership, foundational
governance, unparalleled knowledge of industry best practices, and innovation. He has led the
evolution of the company to today, building a hybrid management consulting and cloud
delivery solutions company focused on helping organizations to achieve their intended ROI.
The Meta team, under Ed’s leadership, views technology as a strategic transformation
and modernization enabler, though it is the client’s people and their ability to gain tangible
long-term results that is the primary ROI driver. Ed works with client executives to help build
and drive a vision that delivers sustainable positive change within their organization.
Prior to Meta, Ed has led implementations and architected financials products serving
the federal government. He holds a BS degree in Accounting from the Pennsylvania State University
and is a Certified Public Accountant and a Certified Government Financial Manager.
