Management Team

Evan Crouse – Managing Partner
Evan is currently studying finance as an MBA student at The Wharton School of The University of Pennsylvania. As a former chemical engineer, Evan has broad experience in several areas of the specialty chemical and biotechnological industries, including research, operations, product, and capital asset management. His knowledge of the chemical industry, coupled with his superior financial acumen, has proved to be a great asset in his ability to identify latent, high-revenue generating companies and emerging markets in the biotech sector. In addition to providing market research and developing software, Evan also brings much of the creative theory and unique mathematical modeling methodologies to MVS and serves as the organization's principle fund manager. Evan's approach to portfolio management and security selection focuses on value investing, specifically with respect to evaluating earnings multiples, product pipelines, cash flow figures, and other operational factors. Unlike several of the other financial engineers at MVS, Evan tends to use changes in momentum and market dynamics as entry and exit points as opposed to opportunities to exercise options.
