Cadmus Group

Jim Stewart, Principal, & Hossein Haeri

Cadmus Group, Inc. opened for business in Watertown, Massachusetts, on May 1, 1983. The company’s name came from the Greek myth of a Phoenician prince who brought the alphabet to Greece, founded one of the great city-states, and became renowned for his wisdom and advice. “There was a lot more to the myth,” Gene once wrote, “but that was enough for us: a wise man who founded his own city and gave advice. ‘Cadmus’ it was to be.”

Cadmus engages in a broad array of services for clients including consulting, risk evaluation, sustainability consulting, strategic communications, and much more. 


We have a number of full time roles and will have some internships as well; as always, we are looking for quantitative skills and any energy experience is a plus!
