Our Brand

Kymera (pronounced kī-ˈmir-ə) is an adaptation of Chimera, which according to Greek mythology was a massive fire-breathing being, created from the parts of more than one animal. For our company, it symbolizes the combined talent and capabilities of the businesses we’ve merged with and acquired to create one mission-driven entity. The logo combines three powerful animals: namely, the lion, the ram, and the serpent.
