Jonathan Brolin is the founder and managing partner of Edenbrook Capital LLC, which he founded in 2011. Edenbrook takes a private equity approach to public markets, principally through concentrated, long-term investments in small- and mid-cap companies. This approach involves identifying equities that are undervalued on a fundamental basis, performing intensive research on companies and industries, understanding existing and potential levers for creating value, and collaborating with management teams and/or other constituents to unlock shareholder value over a multiyear period. Brolin currently serves on the board of directors of Frequency Electronics Inc. and CXO Nexus Inc.
Brolin has 25 years of experience in public and private equity investing and investment banking. In addition, he serves as a fellow at the Gabelli Center for Global Security Analysis and taught Advanced Topics in Value Investing for seven years as an adjunct professor of finance at the Gabelli School of Business. He earned his M.B.A. from Columbia Business School, where he was a member of the Beta Gamma Sigma honor society. Brolin earned his B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania, where he was a Benjamin Franklin scholar and general honors student. When he’s not searching for value, he can be found watching, coaching, playing, or thinking about baseball.
