Founding Member will focus on his multi-family office advisory practice StennerZohny Investment Partners+; Remains a TIGER 21 Member and will hold title of Chairman Emeritus of TIGER 21 Canada.
Vancouver, BC (March 2, 2015) – Thane Stenner, the Managing Director and Founding Member of TIGER 21 Canada, will step down as Managing Director to focus on his increasingly successful national high-net-worth multi-family office, StennerZohny Investment Partners+ of Richardson GMP, the largest independent wealth management firm of Canada with $27B AUA. Stenner will remain a Member of TIGER 21’s Vancouver group and will hold the title of Chairman Emeritus of TIGER 21 Canada.
Stenner was instrumental in the expansion of TIGER 21 into Canada. Under his stewardship, Groups were launched in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, and Montreal in 2011. Those Groups have attracted some of Canada’s finest entrepreneurs and business professionals and now have approximately 45 Members in total. Overall, TIGER 21 has over 315 Members, who control more than $30 billion in personal investable assets.
Stenner has more than 25 years experience advising high-net-worth families, entrepreneurs, and corporate and philanthropic entities. A recognized expert in the high-net-worth advisory field, Stenner maintained his advisory business while growing TIGER 21 in Canada. With both businesses thriving, he decided the time was right to transition out of his role with TIGER 21.
“I have found that the increasingly demanding and active role within my national family office advisory practice requires me to hand over the managerial duties to the capable hands within TIGER 21. It’s simply the right time in the evolutionary development of TIGER 21 Canada. I look back at the last four years fondly and with great pride as many new relationships have been formed, and existing relationships enhanced, and I look forward to visiting all the Canadian Groups on a periodic basis” said Stenner.
He continued, “I am very proud of TIGER 21 Canada’s growth. We have exceptionally successful and thoughtful Members, and professional and committed Chairs who lead each of the four Groups. I am a big believer in the truly transformative power and value that TIGER 21 brings to its Members, which is why I am staying on as a Member and Chairman Emeritus of TIGER 21 Canada.”
“We are grateful that Thane planted the seeds of an idea and brought TIGER 21 Canada into being. He has done a tremendous job starting Groups in four cities simultaneously and he has attracted an extraordinary Canadian Membership that we are proud to call part of the TIGER 21 family,” said Michael Sonnenfeldt, Founder and Chairman of TIGER 21. “Simply put, we never would have been able to get started in Canada without Thane’s initiative, and the change we are announcing is a natural response of the growth in TIGER 21 Canada as well as StennerZohny.”
Stenner’s responsibilities as Managing Director will be handled by various professionals within TIGER 21, including its new Chief of Field Operations Greg Wells, who will oversee all TIGER 21 Chairs in Canada and the United States.
“Thane has been the catalyst and moving force behind TIGER 21's very successful entry into Canada. His indefatigable energy, financial acumen, and high level of personal touch have been the hallmark of what TIGER 21 has come to represent with our groups in Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal and Toronto,” said Jonathan Kempner, TIGER 21 President.
