NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Morrow Sodali, the global shareholder engagement and governance consulting firm, today announced that it is further expanding its U.S. M&A and Activism Advisory Group to meet growing client demand for strategic stock surveillance in M&A and activism situations. Morrow Sodali’s newest team member is Jonathan D. Eyl, Vice President in M&A and Activism Advisory Services, who joins the firm from MacKenzie Partners. Jon is the latest addition to the firm’s growing M&A and Activism practice, following the recent appointments of Paul Schulman, Managing Director, and Harry van Dyke, Executive Vice Chairman. Jon brings with him more than a decade of experience in strategic surveillance services related to contested and transactional situations.

Morrow Sodali’s Strategic Stock Surveillance effort draws on the firm’s more than 45 years of experience and expertise in helping companies understand the risks and impacts of changes in their shareholder bases specifically tied to pending transactions and potential activist threats.
