Okapi Partners, which advises companies and hedge funds in proxy contests, announced on Friday that it has named Michael Fein as the new senior managing director.
In Fein’s new position, he will be responsible for leading Okapi’s business development efforts. Fein’s appointment comes as the firm’s opportunities in the proxy solicitation industry continue to grow.
Prior to joining Okapi, Fein was a principal and founder of investment firm Midway Management Partners. Earlier in his career, Fein worked at Prudential Asset Management Company and served as director of marketing for Matrix Capital Management, a subsidiary of PAMCO.
Okapi represents corporations, mutual funds, private equity firms, hedge funds and institutional investors and provides them with intellectual capital, industry relationships and execution capabilities.
