The spark that ignited Metrix Learning into the country’s go-to workforce development solution has jumped generations within founder and CEO Brian Lee’s family. Lee’s career stands firm on a foundation of the tenacity, grit, and public service of his father, who carried the Lees through the Depression while working for the New York State Department of Labor. Mr. Lee’s unequivocal determination to help fellow citizens connect to a good job and take care of their families was the sole purpose of his 40-year career. The desire to serve continued with Brian, whose education at Cornell University encompassed Industrial and Labor relations, leading him through a workforce development pilgrimage combining technology, education, and business. NY Wired for Education was born on the premise that empowered workers should be nourished with the prudent innovation of technological solutions.
Metrix Learning takes pride in its education and its impact has not gone unnoticed. Recently, Certus, an eLearning certification company, joined the momentum and acquired NY Wired for Education and Metrix Learning.
