Mitretek Systems, a nonprofit science, technology and strategy  organization founded in 1996 announced it has changed its name to Noblis.

“We changed our name to Noblis because it conveys the critical nature of the work we do to help our customers address the nation’s most challenging problems,” Noblis President and CEO Lydia Waters Thomas, PhD, said. “Our new name reflects our unique mission and values; to improve lives and serve the good of our nation.”

According to Noblis the company solves complex systems, process and infrastructure problems in ways that benefit the public in areas as varied as transportation, telecommunications, energy systems, homeland security and healthcare.

“Our heritage and culture sets us apart, even in the nonprofit arena. We have no commercial interests to advance, vendor alliances to protect or members or sponsors to represent. That means our teams are free to focus their energy and brainpower on what matters most: finding impartial answers that work for our clients and for the public good,” Thomas said.

“After more than a decade of growth it’s important to note that we are not changing the work we do or the way we operate,” Thomas added.
