International management and digital consultancy Metyis has announced plans to invest millions in a new campus in Gondomar, Portugal.

With offices around the world, including nine in Europe, Metyis is a European-heritage consultancy specialised in strategy, innovation, data science and digital transformation.

The firm’s latest venture into Portugal will significantly boost its data science and digital transformation offerings to clients – which includes the likes of multinationals, large national companies and investors. The firm’s digital practices specialise in helping clients conceptualise digital strategies, bringing these to life, and with developing solutions for processing large volumes of data in order to gain strategic insights.

The new Portuguese campus is slated to have its first phase – at a cost of €10 million – concluded in the first trimester of 2022. This will see office space delivered to host teams, and an auditorium that can seat more than 300 people.

Next phases of the project include the construction of further offices for strategic partnerships, and even residence or hotel services to accommodate professionals from around the globe, who will be able to travel to the new Metyis Campus to receive training. 

According to the company’s plans, the expansion will eventually contribute to creating around 1,000 new jobs over the coming five years. Once fully realised, the office will become Metyis’ largest locale in terms of headcount – as the firm currently employs around 750 consultants, data scientists and other staff. 

According to Metyis Founder and CEO Yogen Singh, the new centre will play a key part in helping the consulting firm meet growing demand from clients across Europe for its data offerings, while facilitating new forums for the exchange of knowledge. Singh added that Metyis hopes to link with local “universities and other academic institutions,” in order to tap into Portugal’s qualified population of young professionals – many of whom speak English, and have gone through financial crises that stimulated the development of new ideas and concepts among them.

The choice of Portugal is also based on the necessary proximity to European customers who “do not want to depend on time differences”, with a location closer to Porto preferred above capital city Lisbon which is “getting a little crowded”.
