ATLANTA, May 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tiger Group, the international asset-valuation, advisory, capital solutions and disposition services firm, has established a new base of operations in the Southeast, the company announced.
New York-based Tiger established its Southeast operations earlier this month by relocating Melissa Coopersmith, Managing Director, from New York to Atlanta's Buckhead commercial district. Coopersmith will focus on serving the asset-based lending community through the provision of formal appraisals of consumer goods, commercial and industrial assets and intellectual property. She will also facilitate asset disposition projects and capital opportunities to businesses seeking junior secured debt or equity financing.
"Our existing business already includes a number of clients in Buckhead and around the region," Coopersmith noted. "With this move, we will be able to strengthen our relationships with our existing banking and business clients as we continue to grow our market share across the Southeast region."
In addition to conducting appraisals, Tiger purchases, monetizes and finances retail and wholesale consumer product inventories, intellectual property, commercial and industrial assets, and machinery and equipment. "This is a high-touch, relationship-driven business," said Chief Operating Officer Michael McGrail. "Establishing a physical presence in this market shows Tiger's commitment to the Southeast and our belief in its extraordinary growth potential."
During the past 12 months, Tiger also established an office in Chicago and relocated its New York and Boston offices to larger quarters. The firm has other domestic offices in Los Angeles and San Francisco, and international offices in Sydney, Perth, and Brisbane, Australia.
Coopersmith has more than 15 years of experience in brand marketing, corporate strategy and sales. She joined Tiger in 2014 from BMC Group, a leading global provider of financial, legal and corporate information management services for investment banks, private equity firms, government agencies, insurance carriers, healthcare providers, and Fortune 1000 corporations, where she was Senior Vice President, Business Development, since 2010. In that role, she worked extensively with companies in the restructuring industry.
A member of the American Bankruptcy Institute, Association for Corporate Growth and the Turnaround Management Association, Coopersmith earned a Bachelor of Science degree from West Virginia University.
