Glenhill Advisors is a New York-based hedge fund that was founded by its current manager Glenn J. Krevlin in 2001. The firm primarily employs a long/short equity strategy, while focusing on companies with small market capitalizations. The hedge fund has a diversified portfolio, which is valued at around $1.3 billion, with around a third of its holdings stemming from the consumer discretionary sector. Furthermore, none of the positions held by the firm account for more than 6% of its equity portfolio. According to its latest 13F filing Glenhill Advisors’ top 3 picks for the end of the third quarter included Dicks Sporting Goods Inc (NYSE:DKS) and Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc (NASDAQ:SBGI). During this time, the firm was betting the most on W. R. Grace & Co (NYSE:GRA), which was its largest position following a 187% increase to its stake during the third quarter. Richard Chilton’s Chilton Investment Company was also bullish regarding this stock, which continues to be the firm’s biggest bet according to its last 13F filing.

The latest increase in Glenhill Advisors’ stake in Joint Corp just 2 days after the company elected to new members to its Board of Directors. One of these new board members is William “Bill” Fields, which has more than 25 years of experience in the retail industry. Mr. Fields began his career at Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT), where he rose through the ranks and held several executive positions, before going on to serve as chairman of other top retail firms. The other new board member appointed by Joint Corp is Ron DaVella, who spent 34 years as Audit Manager and Audit Partner at Deloitte. During this time, Mr. DaVella gained vast experience in everything from mergers and acquisitions, to financial controls, and internal reporting. Hence, the two latest additions to the board of directors, will allow the company to boast a management team with a deeper knowledge of the retail industry, as well as greater financial expertise.
