Hudson Executive Capital Co-Founder has left the firm -sources

NEW YORK, Nov 28 (Reuters) - James Woolery, the co-founder of Hudson Executive Capital, has left the firm, according to people familiar with the matter, less than two years after the activist fund launched.

Woolery, a veteran dealmaker who previously worked at JPMorgan Chase & Co and law firm Cravath, Swaine & Moore, left the fund within the past few weeks, people familiar with the matter said.

Woolery co-founded the firm with another veteran JPMorgan dealmaker, Doug Braunstein. The firm officially launched in January 2015 and made its first investment a year later.
