Shayne M. John

Shayne is the lead Portfolio Manager of DCM’s Midcap Growth strategy and is also on the Investment Strategy Committee.

Shayne holds a BBA from Coe College and a Master of Science in Finance from the University of London. He was awarded Continental Bank's Richter Scholarship for Outstanding Senior Honors Thesis in Economics by the Associated Colleges of the Midwest consortium, and was elected to Omicron Delta Epsilon (ODE), the Honors Society for students of economics. In addition, he holds the Certified Management Accountant (CMA) and the Certified Financial Manager (CFM) designations from the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA).

Shayne joined DCM in 2011after a 15 year career spanning both the sell-side and buy-side. Prior to DCM, he was the co-Portfolio Manager of the Midcap Fund (ARTMX) and the Opportunistic Growth Fund (ARTGX) at Artisan Partners. Previous to Artisan Partners, Shayne was the Portfolio Manager for Midcap Growth at NCM Capital for a decade, where he led the product to consistent top-decile rankings in the institutional separate account space. He has also served as Director of Research and Investment Strategist at INNOVA Securities, an Asian emerging markets boutique.

When not navigating the investing rapids of the growth stock universe, Shayne can be found braving the agonies of Atlanta traffic while he ferries his daughters to yet more after-school activities. He confesses to a passion for Ray Charles and Eric Clapton, the mobster films of Guy Ritchie and Scorsese, and collecting cricket memorabilia and books – and is yet adamant that all that pales in comparison to the excitment of finding the next midcap or smallcap winner for his portfolios.
