MiB: Doug Braunstein, Hudson Executive Capital

Summary:
This week, we speak with Doug Braunstein, founder and managing partner at Hudson Executive Capital, which has underwritten several successful SPAC offerings, with .6B in AUM. Previously, he was Chief Financial Officer at JPMorgan Chase, where he worked directly with Jamie Dimon as a member of JPMorgan’s Executive Committee. He also served as head of JPMorgan’s Americas Investment Banking and Global M&A. Braunstein tries to take a “private equity” approach to public companies.
