Where Kirkland, Wash., offices

Rooted in public relations, 25-year-old Metia has blossomed into a full-fledged digital shop, attracting customers like Microsoft, Amazon and AT&T. For Microsoft, Metia designed an initiative that entailed a smart, location-wired Web platform for government workers worldwide. The platform helps public-sector employees get ideas about how to use technology to improve their communities. The public sector is increasingly looking for digital solutions to improve their customer service, said Metia president Andrew Martin. Anyone who has endured long lines at the DMV will no doubt root for Martin & Co.’s continued progress.
