Dunbar will oversee the development and strategic expansion of TIGER 21’s European presence beyond its existing groups in the US and Switzerland. She will be based in London and report to TIGER 21’s chief operating officer, Greg Wells. The organisation is based in the US.

Prior to this role, Dunbar was on the executive team at the CFA Institute.

Dunbar holds a BA (Hons) degree from University College London and is an alumna of the General Management Program at Harvard Business School. 

Founded in 1999, TIGER 21 has 74 groups of about 12 to15 members, each of whom meet for a full day each month in 34 cities across the US, Canada, the UK, and Switzerland. Each Group functions as a personal board of directors for its constituent members. Membership is by invitation only.

Another such membership group, launched recently, is , an invitation-only organisation for ultra-HNW individuals in the US. The founders of that group say that it eventually wants to expand outside the US.
