What Do You Enjoy Most About Your Job:
I really love investing. It is an exciting profession to be in because you are always learning something new—a new business model, a new technology, a new consumer product, a new way to conduct business. It can be very humbling, but the beauty of the profession is that you are learning every day that you come into the office.

What Do You Enjoy Most About Working at KAR:
One of things I enjoy most about working at KAR is the people. I work with a great group of people that continually challenge you intellectually.

One of the other things I truly enjoy is that I fundamentally believe in our high-quality approach to investing. Every day we are examining really great businesses, really digging in and challenging each other as to why these are or are not great businesses. As a result, we all make each other better as investors. That makes coming to work every single day a truly enjoyable experience.

What Are You Involved in Outside of Work:
While I thoroughly enjoy my work, my family is by far the most important thing to me. I have two kids that keep me very busy. I have coached their sports teams since they were three years old. They learn from me but, most importantly, I learn from them as well and that helps me be a better parent.

Outside of that, I read and I love being active. I run, ski, and play tennis. I also am very involved in my church.

Education

UCLA's primary purpose as a public research university is the creation, dissemination, preservation and application of knowledge for the betterment of our global society. To fulfill this mission, UCLA is committed to academic freedom in its fullest terms: We value open access to information, free and lively debate conducted with mutual respect for individuals, and freedom from intolerance. In all of our pursuits, we strive at once for excellence and diversity, recognizing that openness and inclusion produce true quality. These values underlie our three institutional responsibilities. Learning and teaching at UCLA are guided by the belief that undergraduate, graduate and professional school students and their teachers belong to a community of scholars. This community is dedicated to providing students with a foundational understanding of a broad range of disciplines followed by the opportunity for in-depth study in a chosen discipline. All members of the community are engaged together in discovering and advancing knowledge and practice. Learning occurs not only in the classroom but also through engagement in campus life and in communities and organizations beyond the university.

Doheny Asset Management is a value manager that offers balanced, equity and fixed-income investment strategies. The firm seeks to outperform the equity benchmarks by identifying companies that have become undervalued due to disparities between investor perception and actual underlying fundamentals. They review financial statements with a focus on identifying the normalized cash flows of the underlying business, as well as the industry dynamics and each company's competitive position and prospects. Doheny actively manages their portfolios and often takes a contrarian view of both companies and industries. Although the firm generally employs a value-oriented investment approach, they also employ growth and GARP strategies. Doheny identifies investments through a combination of top-down macro-thematic and bottom-up valuation driven processes. The firm constructs diversified, well-balanced portfolios across a variety of industries to reduce volatility and minimize risk.
