NEW YORK, May 20, 2013

NEW YORK, May 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --As design plays an increasingly
important role in the world of operations, process, and technology, SSA &
Company is leading this trend among strategic management consultancies. To
point: SSA is bringing on a new Managing Director for New Products and
Innovation – Jason Meil – who joins the company from Method, an international
experience design firm. As Managing Director of Method's San Francisco
headquarters, Meil oversaw business development and design output, working
closely with companies such as Google, Microsoft, Flextronics, Samsung, Intel,
Fujitsu, Charter Communications, Electronic Arts, First Republic Bank and
Whole Foods.

In his new role at SSA, Meil will help build out the firm's suite of offerings
for clients, adding expertise in service design and technology implementation
to supplement SSA's deep capabilities in operational transformation. Meil
brings an extensive portfolio in the areas of innovation, branding, and
digital content. Prior to Method, Meil was EVP at Interpublic Group, where he
led IPG/Initiative's award-winning Innovations group that identified new
trends and technologies and created high-ROI programs across emerging
platforms.

"At SSA, we are committed to finding ways to help our clients execute their
strategies more effectively, and there is an increasing need in the market for
more creative, design-driven solutions to operational and process challenges,"
says David Niles, president of SSA. "Having Jason's design point of view and
experience creates opportunities for us to expand the solution set for clients
– and expand our thinking about the challenges presented by moving from an
analog to digital world. With Jason on our executive team, we will accelerate
the evolution of our services to have more impact and relevance to today's
CEO."

A key part of SSA's value proposition is helping complex organizations
"de-clutter" their operating environments. "Jason's skill in service design
and technology implementation will help us shape our services for the new
generation of client and employee, as well as help us innovate our full range
of services around execution and training," says Niles.

SSA's clients range from Fortune 50 global corporations to private equity
portfolio companies, who operate in numerous industries – including energy,
media, financial services, manufacturing, and education. SSA is part of G100
Companies, a partnership of leading professional service firms and executive
membership networks.

"Over the years, more and more of my work has included a significant
operations component: designing products and ecosystems to better serve
customers and create value," says Meil. "Joining SSA gives me the ability to
take this work to its logical next step in helping shape operations themselves
where they can have greatest impact."

Prior to Method and Interpublic, Meil also held positions at Castling Group,
Booz Allen, and Lehman Brothers. He holds a BA (magna cum laude) from Harvard
College and an MBA from Stanford University, where he was named an Arjay
Miller Scholar.
