Thomas O. Putnam founded Fenimore Asset Management in 1974 as a means to manage family money after the Putnams astutely sold their textile business, Fenimore Fabrics, in Upstate New York. The family knew what it takes to run a successful business and based their investment philosophy on finding companies exhibiting those same quality characteristics.
