Campaign Management Launched to Provide Strategic Advice in Shareholder Elections

Serves Unmet Need as Campaigns Become Increasingly Nuanced

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Campaign Management LLC today announced its launch as a strategic advisory firm providing tactical advice and proxy solicitation services to help clients maximize shareholder support in corporate elections.

Having advised on hundreds of shareholder elections, including both corporate defense and activist mandates in high-profile proxy fights as well as friendly and contested M&A, the Campaign Management team has extensive experience helping ensure shareholder meetings run smoothly and cost effectively.

“The current market environment highlights the need for blunt advice from experienced, thoughtful advisors on how best to obtain shareholder support. Resistance and opposition are pervasive, creating significant challenges to achieving a campaign’s goals,” said Michael Fein, Campaign Management’s Founder and CEO. “As campaigns become more nuanced and the stakes become increasingly higher, the difference between success and failure may very well rely on devising and executing the most effective strategy to drive positive results at the polls. Campaign Management aims to be the leading firm in our space by providing expert advice, flawless execution, and the highest level of client service.”

The extensive buy-side experience of Campaign Management’s team is a key differentiator, enabling the firm to add significant value. This background provides both a deep appreciation for the factors that influence shareholder voting as well as strong relationships with decision makers at leading institutions. “Ultimately, it’s about understanding the issues and how shareholders view them,” said Fein, a Wall Street veteran of more than thirty years.

Campaign Management is a full-service firm providing proxy advice and solicitation as well as key ancillary offerings including activist vulnerability analysis, board evaluation, stock surveillance, shareholder proposal analysis and corporate governance advice. For more information, visit
