Dan Edgar has joined Tiger Group as an associate director, based in the firm’s metro Los Angeles office in Westlake Village.

Edgar will be responsible for managing the firm’s West Coast asset appraisal team. In this role, he will oversee daily operations and client interaction in the region and work to continue growing Tiger’s presence within the retail, wholesale and industrial sectors in the Western U.S. He will report to managing director Michael McGrail.

He joined the firm in 2007 as a senior financial analyst and rose through the ranks to become a senior associate in 2008, and project manager in 2010.

From 2004 to 2007, Edgar was a financial consultant and accredited asset management specialist at A.G. Edwards & Sons, Inc. in San Jose, CA. A long-time resident of southern California, Edgar graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2004 with a B.A. degree in Business Economics and Global Studies.

“We’re pleased to have Dan join the Tiger team. His years of appraisal experience and work on complex, multi-faceted projects fits perfectly with the growing and experienced appraisal and liquidation staff at Tiger,” said McGrail.
