Executive Advisory Group
SSM’s Executive Advisory Group is comprised of respected friends of the firms who have been very successful and who we’ve asked to be advisors to us. The group helps to foster relationships, create and evaluate new opportunities, and provide insights from the perspective of an operator.
At SSM, we believe that the success of our companies hinges on the effectiveness of their teams. These teams and their leaders, not us, are the stars — and we aim to be their greatest advocates. To that end, we have highlighted here some of the great teams to which we and our companies aspire to emulate.
