Longtime economic development professional Shelley Cadamy will lead an Oklahoma City company’s expansion into Tulsa.
The Mettise Group, a business management consultant firm, announced this week that it has hired former Workforce Tulsa Executive Director Shelley Cadamy, who has 25 years’ experience assisting start-ups and existing small businesses with strategy development.
Before she was at Workforce Tulsa, she created and led programs at the Oklahoma Department of Commerce, Edmond Economic Development Authority, Broken Arrow Economic Development Corp. and the Business & Entrepreneurial Services program at Francis Tuttle Technology Center.
“We’re delighted to have Shelley join our talented group of consultants at Mettise and provide more localized service to our Tulsa clients,” Mettise founder Gene Hopper said in a statement.
Having a Tulsa-based representative will allow Mettise to expand its popular executive peer advisory network, Posse and Tribe, to an additional metro area. Started more than 10 years ago with a group of eight members and one facilitator, the Posse and Tribe community has grown to include five facilitators and at least 100 members in Oklahoma City, making it the largest executive peer network in the state.
In addition to facilitating peer advisory groups, Cadamy will provide consulting and strategic planning services, including economic development and workforce development consulting, for Mettise for-profit and nonprofit clients.
