I've been futilely searching around for a word for someone who readily embraces change, or, is enthusiastic about it. I thought about an antonym for metathesiophobic, which is fear of change, but I couldn't even find anything for that. "Metathesiophilia" doesn't seem to be a word. Any suggestions?

Believe it or not, progressive is actually the word you're looking for. A person who is progressive is one who favors change or innovation. Just look it up in any online dictionary if don't believe me. And right under the definition, there is a list of synonyms. Among them you will find terms such as modernistic and progressivist that might work for you just as well.
