WESTFIELD, N.J., Aug. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Context Summits, the preeminent producer of investment summits for the alternative asset management industry, together with its parent company Context Capital Partners LP today announced the formation of Context Family Network ("CFN") and appointed Bridget Kilroy as Executive Director of CFN, effective July 2016. In the new role, Ms. Kilroy will manage the day-to-day operations of CFN and will be based in Los Angeles.
CFN is a global initiative to unite single-family offices and provide an unbiased forum for affluent families and their executives to network with like-minded peers. The network will have exclusive access to curated topical forums, roundtables, intimate dinners, philanthropic opportunities and community-building events that generate immediate relationships between families.
Ms. Kilroy joins Context with 10 years of experience in business development, marketing and philanthropic endeavors specific to single-family offices. Previously, she was the Founder of the NextGen Leaders Network, a nonprofit organization focused on the education and development of the next generation of leaders. In addition, she was the Senior Marketing Manager of a Beverly Hills-based wealth management firm, and before that she worked at Rothstein Kass, which was an accounting firm acquired by KPMG LLP in 2014.
"For Context, the formation of CFN builds on the diverse set of businesses that we have established across the alternative eco-system and complements the established relationships of our Summits business," said Ron Biscardi, Co-Founder & CEO of Context Capital Partners. "Over the past several years, we have gotten to know Bridget and tracked her progress in organizing unbiased forums for families. Bridget brings to Context a strong network of West Coast families and a great reputation for putting families together who have similar interests."
"CFN is a natural extension of our Summits platform and provides a way for these families to engage with each other throughout the year and build meaningful relationships," said Mark Salameh, CEO of Context Summits. "Family offices comprise nearly half of the allocators attending our Summits throughout the year, and we have learned they are looking for more frequent interactions with their peers in a casual environment."
"Families represent one of the biggest supporters of the alternative investing space, however a gap still exists in the market for a central forum to exchange ideas on a variety of topics with a special focus on philanthropy," said Ms. Kilroy, Executive Director of CFN. "By launching CFN, we hope to bring families together to share best practices and brainstorm ideas."
