Jonathan Fassberg recognized early in his career that small-cap biotechnology companies were underserved in an investor relations capacity. To fill this void, Jonathan founded The Trout Group in 1996 and grew it to become the leading investor relations firm in the life sciences industry. Trout has served over 750 public and private companies both domestically and internationally. In 2017, Trout was acquired by Solebury Communications and the combined firm became known as Solebury Trout.
Prior to Trout’s founding, Jonathan was a sell-side analyst at a healthcare-focused investment bank. Before his career on Wall Street, Jonathan spent four years at DuPont Pharma in various sales and marketing positions.
Jonathan holds a B.S. in Biology and Chemistry from The University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill and an MBA in finance from New York University’s Stern School of Business. Jonathan has been an active member of Young Presidents Organization since joining the Manhattan Chapter in 2007 and is currently serving as Chapter Chair. He also sits on the Board of Directors for the Carolina Center for Jewish Studies at UNC. Jonathan played water polo at UNC and for the NYAC after college. As a food allergy parent, Jonathan is passionate about improving healthcare for food allergic families.
