Hudson Executive Capital is an investment firm that seeks to identify value-oriented opportunities in the small/mid-cap U.S. public markets to actively engage with management, boards and shareholders of portfolio companies. The Firm operates through Constructive Engagement, collaboratively driving change through operational improvements and strategic transactions to generate alpha for our investors. Douglas Braunstein, Founder and Managing Partner, has 30+ years of transactional experience and leads a seasoned team of investment professionals to identify actionable opportunities and work directly with portfolio companies to catalyze value and drive returns. In what we believe to be a unique structure, a group of 35+ current and former public company CEO investors in the Fund may assist the investment team (subject to conflicts and compliance rules) through all stages of the process, from identifying investment opportunities through implementation of our operational and strategic agenda with portfolio companies.
Through a new model of activist investing, the Firm’s dedication towards a collaborative approach is aligned with the public company environment, taking advantage of changes in U.S. corporate governance and an increasingly active institutional investor base. The Firm seeks to preserve and drive shareholder value in a cooperative manner, formally forgoing the right to conduct hostile proxy fights and public media tactics.
