Jason has been working at the centre of aerospace and defence M&A activity in the US and Europe since 1996 and has been ranked in the top three aerospace and defence M&A practitioners in Europe (by volume of deals transacted).
Since founding the firm in 2005, Jason has established Steen Associates as a leading mergers and acquisitions firm in the aerospace & defence and industrials sectors in Europe and the US.
His main focus is developing and initiating innovative M&A strategies for long-established clients of the firm, as well building relationships with other companies in the aerospace and defence and industrials sectors to which Steen may be able to offer a counter-point to traditional thinking.
