He also co-manages, with his partner, Mark Sullivan, the Small, Midcap and Special Situation Portfolio.

Brewster, whose previous employment includes  working in Ledger Accounting at Bally’s Park Place, and in  Casino Credit at Trump Castle Hotel Casino, was born in Ireland. He earned his higher diploma in Management Finance from Athlone Institute of Technology in Ireland, and later earned his BS in Business Administration from Thomas Edison State College.
Brewster says his Irish heritage has taught him that “Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits.” His family on his father’s side come from County Fermanagh; his mother’s family, the Hegartys, are from County Longford. A member of the Ireland U.S. Council, and the Enterprise Ireland advisory board, Brewster lives in New York with his wife, Margaret.
