Prestigious Alumni Achievement Award for Metrix Founder

Date published 10 Nov 2020

Our Founder and Managing Director, Marquis Pohla, has been recognised as one of Australia’s most inspiring business leaders at the 2020 Curtin University Alumni Achievement Awards.

Marquis, who graduated from Curtin in 2004 with a Bachelor of Commerce, won the Professional Achievement Award – Business and Law for 2020.

The judges were impressed with Marquis's drive and foresight in taking Metrix Consulting from lounge room start-up to leading strategic insights and strategy company in just ten years.

They also acknowledged the considerable time and energy he commits to community projects, including initiatives to improve youth mental and physical health.

Marquis said he is honoured to be named among this year's graduates deemed 'making a difference'.

"Some incredible Curtin alumni are working across a range of disciplines, so it is exciting and humbling to be part of the 2020 Achievement Awards cohort. I had an extraordinary education experience with Curtin, including overseas study, and the knowledge and the values I took on board during that time will stay with me forever."

In a year when COVID-19 has presented a unique set of challenges to business, government, and the community across Australia, Marquis said his Alumni Achievement Award is an important reminder of the value of partnerships.

"Success is not a solo pursuit, and I am grateful to have had the support of my family, the amazing Metrix team, and our wonderful clients to help drive my entrepreneurial journey," he said.

While Marquis’s university days might be behind him, he maintains a strong connection to Curtin as a guest lecturer and mentors students who aspire to work in the marketing and consulting fields.
