Richard S. Meisenberg is the manager and founder of ACK Asset Management, a hedge fund created in 2005 that specializes in small cap and mid cap equities. The fund details on its website that it capitalizes on mid-cap and small-cap companies because they are both the largest segment of the market and the least efficiently priced. A broad economic outlook, a long/short strategy, and an eye for catalysts are the mainstays of Meisenberg's strategy. Before founding ACK Asset Management, Meisenberg was an analyst for small- and mid-cap stocks at Oppenheimer & Co. and Smith Barney, as well as a founding partner of Palisade Capital Management. ACK Asset Management was co-founded with John H. Reilly III, who is a managing partner.
