Our corporate launch takes place in October 1993 as an individual enterprise. In January 1996 we change our corporate formation to Emetris Ltd. adopting the philosophy: ‘Emetris Consultants Business Development Ltd’. In practice it is the continuation of a visionary plan in Research – Consulting by a group of former fellow students of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, towards SMEs.
Our philosophy back then was to provide Coaching Consulting services at and Outsourcing, with annual full support, thus creating our first corporate business core.
The result of this first institutional work was Emetris to become a member of the World Advisor Organization AMCF, based in New York in 1997. For the certification of our consulting services, the company and its people have adopted and apply the principles of the Code of Professional Ethics conduct of the Association.
This documented the consulting role of Emetris for the provision of ‘Institutional Counseling’ through relationships developed with customers, ensuring an exogenous objective observation.
