WEALTHY NETWORK OF INVESTORS EXPANDS TO CHARLOTTE
TIGER 21, a peer-to-peer network for high net worth investors, announced its expansion into North Carolina Tuesday.
Chris Cecil, president of the Biltmore Family Office, will now chair the network’s Charlotte group. Cecil also has experience with GenSpring Family Offices and JPMorgan’s Private Bank. He graduated from UNC Chapel Hill in 1987 and has executive degrees from Harvard Business School and the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business.
“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 10 years in a row, so it’s a natural progression for TIGER 21 to be here,” saidBarbara 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.”
Founded in 1999, TIGER 21 is now in 23 markets in the U.S. and Canada, including Atlanta, San Diego, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles and New York City, where it is headquartered. The groups hold monthly meetings for members to talk confidentially about the challenges and opportunities in wealth management.
TIGER 21 has over 400 members who collectively manage over $40 billion in personal assets. The members are entrepreneurs, investment partners and executives.
