High Net Worth Group Adds Family Office Executive Chris Cecil as Charlotte Chair

New York, NY ‚Äì May 10, 2016 ‚Äì TIGER 21, the premier peer-to-peer learning network for high-net-worth investors, today announced its expansion into the North Carolina market with the launch of a new Group in Charlotte. Chris Cecil, has been named as the Group’s Charlotte Chair.

Charlotte marks the 23rd market for TIGER 21, which operates in the United States and Canada. The monthly Group meetings are at the core of the TIGER 21 experience. These meetings afford Members the opportunity to participate in a unique, confidential forum to discuss the challenges and opportunities in wealth management.

Mr. Cecil is the President of Biltmore Family Office, a collaborative family office, operating as an independent SEC registered advisor, for investment-orientated business owners, entrepreneurs, and their families focused on such areas as investment management, asset allocation, investment policy creation, multi-generational planning and the succession of closely held businesses.

Prior to forming Biltmore Family Office, Mr. Cecil was a Partner of GenSpring Family Offices. He also served as President for both the Southeast and the Florida regions for JPMorgan Private Bank and as a Managing Director for Brown Brothers Harriman & Co in both 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 CEO of TIGER 21. “With Chris’ extensive background in family office management and advisory services in the state, we believe he is the right fit to lead the Charlotte Group.”

“North Carolina routinely comes out on top when it comes to a competitive, educated workforce as well as an all around cost-effective environment for businesses. Entrepreneurship, hard work and success are highly valued qualities in our state,” said Mr. Cecil. “Many times, entrepreneurs have experienced their success outside of the financial world, and therefore need a place where they can learn from others in an open and honest forum about how to preserve the wealth they have worked so hard for.”

Mr. Cecil graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1987, and has received executive degrees from the Harvard Business School and the Darden Business School.
