Our History

Thomas Sandell, Chief Executive Officer and Portfolio Manager, founded Sandell Asset Management in 1998 after spending the previous eight years at Bear, Stearns & Co. where he was hired to establish and run a proprietary international arbitrage business and ultimately co-headed the department. Tom has been investing in global corporate events since the late 1980s. Our investment team's differentiated expertise, through our extensive history as event driven investors, has been in sourcing opportunities in a variety of global developed markets. The firm's experience, combined with our relationships in local markets, has been derived from many years of accumulated experience which provide a tremendous edge in idea generation, research and execution.
