TALENT experts

In July, 2021, the entire landscape changed for college athletes across the country. No longer restricted from making a profit off their name, image or likeness (NIL), the opportunities erupted like a geyser, for both the athletes and the companies/individuals who want to support them.


SSM has been at the forefront of the NIL movement and is actively involved in helping young athletes establish a brand that is uniquely theirs. Each marketing plan is developed specifically for the individual with long-term growth and sustainability in mind. Meanwhile, our corporate partners benefit from the opportunity to invest in these athletes as their star is still rising.

Talent Solutions

We at SSM believe that the athlete’s attention should be focused on performance and maximizing potential within their sport. After all, it’s success that drives marketability. Meanwhile, SSM will leverage decades of experience along with a deep network of resources, to create relationships that will benefit everyone. It’s what we do best.
