Jeremy R. Halford joined Tiger Group as managing director of the asset valuation, advisory and disposition services firm’s Commercial & Industrial Division.

Halford heads to Tiger with more than 20 years of experience in restructuring, distressed debt investment and executive leadership within the banking industry, working on creative solutions for large liquid and illiquid companies in the U.S., Europe and Asia.

Halford joins from Union Bank, where he served as vice president, Strategy and Capital Management. Earlier, he was a London-based special situations and distressed debt investor. Halford managed investments as a principal and officer of the Investment Committee at European hedge fund Agilo, and previously served as a co-founding member of the Special Situations Team at Arrowgrass/Deutsche Bank. He began his career at Houlihan Lokey’s Financial Restructuring Group.

Based in Los Angeles, Halford will be responsible for the execution of Tiger’s commercial and industrial dispositions, including orderly sales, public auctions and sealed bid offerings of machinery, equipment, inventory and real property. Halford will also oversee the group’s day-to-day operations and work hand-in-hand with Executive Managing Director Jeff Tanenbaum in charting the Commercial & Industrial Division’s strategic direction and growth.

“As Tiger continues to expand into such markets as purchasing enterprises, debt instruments and real property, we are selectively building our leadership team to incorporate quality restructuring professionals like Jeremy” Tanenbaum said. “We are excited to have Jeremy on board.”
