About Us

Our Story

Since 1977, we have worked with nonprofits, corporate foundations, government agencies, and for-profit companies to help them make a positive impact in the education market—and achieve measurable, strategic goals. Our work has always included two types of initiatives—those centered on making a social impact (often called corporate social responsibility, or CSR programs), as well as those helping organizations expand their commercial market presence and customer base in the education market. From strategic planning and marketing to full project or program implementation, MMS Education partners with clients to create customized solutions that best meet their requirements, time frame, and budget.

Founded by Ed Meell, a former educator and McGraw-Hill executive, the company was started as a consulting firm to help clients develop their marketing and product plans for the education market. Within a few years, clients asked for assistance with implementing these plans—and we soon became a full-service provider. During the past four decades, we have developed, planned, launched, and managed numerous groundbreaking education initiatives for clients as diverse as Time Inc., GTE (later Verizon), Turner Broadcasting, Dairy Management, ETS (Educational Testing Service), The Walt Disney Company, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Share Our Strength, the GENYOUth Foundation, and many others. Education has remained our only focus—we understand the unique requirements of the education market and the ever-changing privacy and other regulations that impact this sector.

We have evolved from producing films and filmstrips for clients to developing, managing, activating, and implementing robust education outreach and corporate social responsibility programs. We take great pride in developing innovative programs that yield measurable results and advance our clients’ goals, whether those goals are focused on generating social impact or increasing customers and revenue. In all cases, our goal is to deliver every project on time and on budget. At MMS, we have the knowledge, resources and staff to collaborate with you, conceive ideas, implement best practices and bring visionary education-based initiatives to fruition.
