We are managers who stick to our knitting management.
We employ a simple organizational structure, favoring ancillary service
artisans over burdensome overhead.
Each of our clients is assigned three managers
an Executive Associate (subject to the clients approval of the actual
staff member assigned) as overall client manager, an Administrative Coordinator
as programs/projects manager, and an Administrative Assistant as work production
manager. Their focus is on efficient, effective conduct of day-to-day business,
on delivery of member services, on development of programs, and on special
The job of ancillary service vendors is to produce production
services (the mailing of hundreds of pieces, design and preparation of communication
materials, the printing of publications), but always under
the management, guidance and approval of MEIs staff.
In this way, MEI doesnt burden its clients with overhead
costs of highly specialized equipment, technically skilled artisans, and
space to house them. Even in a multi-client environment, such services and
products are needed only occasionally. MEI therefore hires these services
on an as needed basis at much lower cost. And vendors charges are never
marked up, never treated as MEI profit centers. The savings achieved are
instead passed on to clients.
The resulting delivery structure is one of simple form,
lean staff, combining management expertise with technical expertise, cost
effectively and efficiently serving our clients and our own best interests.
