Tiger Consultants Limited, the specialist Investment Management operations and technology consultancy group, today announced its new Board of Directors and management structure, following another record year.

Les Mitchell is appointed as Chairman, with Joanne Lewis taking the post of Managing Director. The remainder of the Board comprises David King as Head of Consultancy, Chris Muir as Head of Operations, Mike Royle as Head of Sales & Marketing, and Jeff Ashbolt as Strategic Projects Director. Tiger reports business growth of more than 80% in the past 2 years, doubling its headcount in the same period and fulfilling a diverse cross-section of projects for a growing number of international financial institutions, including asset servicers, asset managers, private wealth managers, boutique fund managers and hedge funds. The number of expert consultants has risen to over 70, engaged in a diverse spread of projects. These range from risk reviews, service remediation, market entry analysis, solution selection, product book definition, operating model reviews, plus PMO set up and control, through to project implementations with budgets ranging from GBP£50,000 to over GBP£2 million.

Tiger's management has focused on consolidating the business structure, following the acquisition of the niche operations consultancy Ruby Business Management during 2007, with the restructuring concluding this phase of activity. Managing Director Joanne Lewis elaborates:

"Tiger has been steadily growing in stature as a trusted consultancy resource in the asset and wealth management sectors, based on a reputation for service excellence, expert knowledge and successful project delivery. As a sizeable, well-established multi-million pound turnover business, managing this growth and consolidating our position is key, and we are delighted to welcome Les Mitchell as chairman to assist with this. We have worked closely with Les since acquiring his company, Ruby Business Management, last year and his input as a director has already proved invaluable. His industry expertise, relationships and market knowledge across the financial services sector is immense, and we recognise the impact that he can mmmake in Tiger's next phase of development. Our new Board of Directors prepares us for the challenges ahead, and will deliver the degree of focus and effectiveness required to take us to the next level. We have a great team, matched by the vision and dedication to continue Tiger's dynamic evolution."

Tiger's board of directors now consolidates more than 120 years' expertise gained within the financial services sector. The management team's experience includes working as practitioners within investment management firms, as well as within the supply chain. In addition, Tiger's consultancy staff each has an average of 10 years' fund management experience in operations, product and technology functions. Tiger has continued to expand its service base in recent years, which now encompasses the broad aspects of Front Office, Operations and Transfer Agency, complemented by strategic consultancy and full implementation services for organisations seeking change.
