Starboard Value


Starboard Value was founded in March 2011. Starboard Value was created through a spin-off transaction from Ramius LLC, the investment management subsidiary of the Cowen Group (NASDAQ: COWN). Prior to founding Starboard Value, the Starboard Value investment team managed the Ramius small cap value and opportunity investment platform. The investment strategy and performance track record was developed and initiated in 2002 by Jeff Smith and Mark Mitchell with Peter Feld joining them in February 2005. The remaining members of the Ramius small cap value and opportunity investment team joined Starboard's Managing Members to establish the firm in March of 2011.
