The firm was founded by Daniel Ho after years of working in accounting and finance for larger firms and organizations. From these experiences, he realized that there was a great need for expertise at the intersection of business and information technology. This lead Daniel to start a small one-man consulting firm to do just that.
As time went on, the projects became larger, so Daniel brought more talent and expertise in-house and partnered with some of the best in their respective disciplines.
Today, Matrix Meridian Corporation is a boutique business and management consultancy in downtown Toronto that provides advisory services to some of the most innovative and respected retail, financial services, manufacturing, non-profit, and education clients worldwide.
