With an MBA from the McColl School of Business at Charlotte’s Queen’s University, Paul is one of those rare individuals who combines a creative advertising & marketing design background with a profound aptitude for the emerging electronic media field and business. From technical expertise to methodical project management skills, Paul is a consultant that embodies the “big picture” thinking required in today’s Internet, intranet and web site design arenas.

Besides over a decade of print advertising and design, Paul created (and served as managing director for) the Electronic Media division of Paradigm Communications1 in Tampa, Florida for almost three years. His focused, goal-oriented approach to web design, implementation, and team management made the newly formed division’s ROI2 more profitable than any other department at Paradigm.

Paul has been in advertising, marketing, and Internet management longer than some of his competitors have been ALIVE! (Okay…That might make him REALLY OLD! But experienced! )

Corporate Experience.

Paul Metheney, Senior Consultant: web designer, SEO, PPC, Email campaign specialistIn 1997, Paul formed Metheney Consulting as well as relocating to Charlotte, NC. After a year of living on the road as an independent consultant, Paul served as a Senior Consultant to Osprey Systems newly formed E-business Division and then as their corporate Creative Director.

Following his tenure at Osprey, Paul became the Creative Director for iXL in Charlotte working on sites such as, Digital Insurance, and Piedmont Natural Gas. Paul left iXL in 2000 (just prior to the Internet Bubble popping) to focus on Metheney Consulting and complete his Master’s degree in Business. For the next seven years, even in the middle of an Internet ‘slump’, Metheney Consulting doubled its revenue every year. A testament to his management skills, Metheney Consulting still thrives today, Nearly twenty years after the Internet bubble burst and many of his competitor’s companies have closed up shop.


Corrupting Impressionable Minds with Reality. Besides educating his clients on how to improve the return on their online investments, Paul also teaches at a local college. His classes enable him to share his experience without the “political correctness” of selling his services. Teaching, while a cut in pay for him, is a fun outlet to share his decades of real-world experience in marketing and online project development. Paul teaches everything from Internet Marketing to HTML development to e-commerce.
