Houston-Based Firm Looks Back on Achievements

HOUSTON — March 12, 2014 ― This month marks the twentieth anniversary of the founding of MRE Consulting. The Houston-based professional services firm opened its doors on March 11, 1994, with a focus on providing objective insights that blend business and technology to help companies experience measurable results.

MRE Consulting has achieved a tremendous amount of growth over the past two decades. What began as a small start-up with less than 10 consultants has grown into a firm of 190 professionals located across the United States and Europe. MRE is led by its three founding partners, Mike Short, Shane Merz and Dru Neikirk, and a leadership team including more than 20 directors and executives.

“More than anything else, MRE Consulting is a firm built on people and relationships,” said Neikirk. “By inspiring and motivating our consultants to continuously improve and invest in themselves, we have created a unique environment where people can focus on both their careers and on delivering results for their clients.”

In addition to expanded staff and capabilities, MRE has grown in reputation, racking up accolades from national, regional and industry-specific organizations including the Houston Business Journal, MSPmentor and CommodityPoint. The firm was again named to the Inc. 5000 Honor Roll in 2013 after its nine previous appearances on Inc. Magazine’s annual list of fastest-growing companies, including three consecutive years on the Inc. 500 list.

“Our twentieth anniversary gives us the opportunity to look back on our accomplishments,” said Short. “We have successfully served almost 300 clients. We have participated in a transformation of both energy industry and technology solutions. We have experienced what works and what doesn’t and have never lost our passion for learning. We have always sought the industry’s most challenging problems and consistently delivered value. We believe that our ‘growth mindset’ has led us to a deeper understanding of our clients’ challenges, and the ability to seize on opportunities to deliver lasting value.”

“We’ve come a long way, and we’re not finished yet,” said Merz. “Look for MRE to continue to innovate and expand in the decades to come.”

Based in Houston, MRE delivers business and technology solutions, services and staffing to a range of industries.
