By Eliane Chavagnon
Family office veteran Chris Cecil has been named as chair of TIGER 21’s new group in North Carolina.
TIGER 21, the peer network of wealthy investors, has expanded into North California with a new Group in Charlotte.
Chris Cecil, president of Biltmore Family Office, has been appointed as chair of the new group, which is the organization’s 23rd.
Before forming Biltmore Family Office, Cecil was a partner at GenSpring Family Offices. He also served as president for the Southeast and the Florida regions at JP Morgan Private Bank and as a managing director at Brown Brothers Harriman & Co in New York and Palm Beach, FL.
“North Carolina has been a hub of innovation, entrepreneurship and higher education for decades. It has consistently been ranked among the top five in Forbes’ Best States for Business for the last ten years in a row, so it’s a natural progression for TIGER 21 to be here,” said Barbara Goodstein, president and chief executive at TIGER 21.
The rationale behind the launch of TIGER 21 around 17 years ago was to boost investors’ investment acumen through critique and coaching, as well as to explore issues of wealth preservation, estate planning and family dynamics, in a safe environment.
