Reevemark Featured in Activist Insight Monthly
Five former managing directors at Sard Verbinnen launched Reevemark in September as a strategic communications firm focused on shareholder activism, investor relations, crisis management, strategic transactions, and litigation support. The consultancy will be led by CEO Brandy Bergman. Other founding members include Hugh Burns, Paul Caminiti, Delia Cannan, and Renée Soto. Altogether, the partners have over 20 years of experience in the field. “We had an excellent experience at Sard Verbinnen, but we got to the point in our careers where we wanted to do something on our own,” Burns told Activist Insight Monthly in an interview.
The young firm has already scored corporate clients like MNG Enterprises, which advanced a hostile bid for Gannett in January, and Bristow Group, which last month abandoned its acquisition of Columbia Helicopters amid shareholder opposition to the deal. “We’re in it for the long-haul. We want to be one of the top firms in the space over the next 10 to 15 years,” Burns noted. “We’re finding that clients and advisers appreciate that we bring an engaged and energized senior team to each project, focused on adding value whether behind the scenes or on the front lines,” Caminiti added. In the coming year Reevemark expects to see a higher level of engagement from traditional funds, a greater focus on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) concerns by activists, and a continued trend toward preparation for activism at the company level. — Activist Insight Monthly, March 2019.
