NEW YORK, Dec. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tatum, a management and advisory firm offering hands-on strategic, financial and technology solutions that measurably improve business performance, today announced that two of its leaders, James Hickey and Kevin Anderson, will be expanding their roles and territories.

Formerly an office managing partner in Orange County, Calif. and a five-year veteran at the firm, Hickey is transitioning to managing partner of private equity services, a new role at Tatum that emphasizes the company's focus on private equity firms. Hickey will leverage his 20 years of experience and extensive network in the private equity community as he assumes his new position serving the western region. He will concentrate on helping private equity firms in the west improve the operational performance and respective returns on investment of their portfolio companies throughout the country.

While at Tatum, Anderson has leveraged his leadership skills as office managing partner in Los Angeles, overseeing daily operational activity, managing and recruiting new talent, leading business development and supporting high-level client engagements. Tatum has maintained a strong presence in this market and in his role as managing partner for Southern California, Anderson's focus will be to foster talent and expand business in the region.

"Private equity firms face many of the same challenges and opportunities Tatum has been helping clients with for decades, but are also distinct in that they are confronting them simultaneously and at different stages throughout their portfolios," said Karen Macleod, Tatum's president. "Hickey and Anderson will champion the Tatum client experience by delivering value earlier and throughout the lifecycle for our private equity clients."  

Tatum offers a range of services for private equity firms, including due diligence to identify the best investment options and overarching strategy, proven operations executives to increase organizational performance and transformation/transaction support that amplifies their investment of time and resources, and ultimately, their business impact.
