Vice Chairs of its groups in Toronto and Calgary.
Leon Goren joins TIGER 21 as Vice Chair for the Toronto group and Jennifer Fuhr joins the Calgary Group
as Vice Chair. TIGER 21 also has Canadian groups in Vancouver and Montreal.
“In less than a year we have made great strides attracting members in all four of our initial Canadian launch
cities. The addition of Leon and Jennifer to their respective groups is a sign that the TIGER 21 model of
collective intelligence has been well-received in Canada and our growth trajectory is on course,” said Thane
Stenner, TIGER 21’s Managing Director for Canada, and Founding Member. “Leon and Jennifer share the
vision that guides TIGER 21 and they both have the connections and professionalism to ensure the continued
success of TIGER 21 Canada.”
Leon Goren joins chair Norm Trainer to facilitate the Toronto group. Goren has more than 25-years experience
as an entrepreneur as well as advisor to both CEOs and senior executives looking to grow their own businesses
and/or multi-national organizations. In 2010, he became the owner and CEO of Ontario-based Presidents of
Enterprising Organizations (PEO), a peer-to-peer network for business executives focused on maximizing their
leadership potential. He frequently addresses business audiences and is a recognized authority on leadership
and business strategy.
“I am very familiar with peer-concept groups and TIGER 21 is considered the premier peer network for high net
worth investors in North America. I know many business leaders who can benefit from the TIGER 21 experience
and look forward to helping TIGER 21 expand in Toronto,” said Goren.
Jennifer Fuhr becomes vice chair of the Calgary group alongside chair Hal Walker. Fuhr is a successful financial
consultant who counts numerous high net worth families, entrepreneurs, and family businesses as her clients. In
2011, she founded Family Wealth Consultants to advise high net worth families in the numerous challenges they
face managing their wealth. She is a frequent speaker on wealth related issues.
“The challenges and opportunities facing the wealthy are oftentimes complicated. TIGER 21 provides a very
constructive environment for the super affluent to seek answers from their peers and receive honest feedback
from people dealing with some of the same issues, all within a ‘safe harbor’ and confidential environment. I am
happy to be joining the TIGER 21 team and contributing to its success,” said Fuhr.
The mission of TIGER 21 is to provide an intimate confidential setting where high net worth investors who have
been responsible for creating their own significant wealth, help each other navigate through a turbulent time.
The TIGER 21 experience helps many members successfully transition from focused entrepreneurs or senior
executives to disciplined managers of their personal wealth, while for other active managers of energy, real
estate or financial assets, the experience provides an opportunity to take an afternoon/eve once a month
out of a busy schedule to explore the critical personal issues of wealth, family, health and philanthropy.
Participating in professionally facilitated, 10- to 15-person groups, Members meet monthly to harness the
varied expertise and collective intelligence of their peers in high-energy, noon to 7:30pm sessions. In addition
to the four Canadian groups, TIGER 21 has groups in New York, Dallas, Miami, San Francisco, San Diego,
Washington, DC and Los Angeles. There are nearly 200 members throughout North America who collectively
manage over $18 billion in investable assets.
