SEC-registered alternative investment adviser SG Capital Management has appointed two seasoned research analysts, Jonathan R. Evans and Lawrence Harvey Weisman.

They will share responsibility for idea generation alongside the equity analyst team.
Evans began his career in the finance industry as an equity research analyst and portfolio manager for Heartland Capital.
Evans joined Conseco Capital Management in 1993 as a research analyst and portfolio manager for their insurance wrapped mutual fund products. Evans was recruited by Friess Associates, manager of the Brandywine Funds, as a research consultant from 1996 to 2006. Following his decade with Friess Associates, Evans became director of research with the fundamental growth equity team at Wells Capital Management. 
Evans continued his career from 2009 until 2012 at Edmunds White Partnersa long short hedge fund where his responsibilities included analysis, portfolio management, and asset gathering. In February 2013, Evans spun out the long short hedge fund from Edmunds White as J-West, where he served as majority owner and chief investment officer. 
Immediately prior to joining SG Capital, Weisman was a portfolio manager for Teton Capital Advisers (no affiliation with SG Capital Management’s Teton strategy) co-managing a long/short equity fund and conducting fundamental equity research for 19 years. During his tenure at Teton Capital Advisers, Weisman also served as a research consultant to Friess Associates, manager of the Brandywine mutual fund, from 1997 through 2012. 
Before joining Teton Capital, Weisman spent six years at Andersen Consulting (Accenture) as a senior manager in their financial services practice where he focused on large bank mergers and acquisitions.
After graduating from college, and prior to attending business school, Weisman worked for First City National Bank in New York City for two years as a money market investment analyst. 
“We are excited to have both Jon and Harv join our team. We feel that they will add significant value and tremendous depth to our existing team’s research efforts,” says Ken Grossman, one of the founding partners of SG Capital Management.
