Meet our diverse team of spirited entrepreneurs, veterans, security experts, and proud citizens.
Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
Under Jim's leadership, TigerSwan has grown from an idea conceived while on a cold-weather training mission in Colorado to a global organization with operations in over 50 countries – in just 10 years. TigerSwan provides “Solutions to Uncertainty” for government entities, commercial enterprises, and individuals around the world. Under Reese’s leadership, TigerSwan continues to transform, increasing its technological capabilities and providing comprehensive solutions to improve risk management for its clients.
Reese retired as a Lt. Colonel from the US Military’s heralded “Delta Force” in 2007 after 25 years of service as a decorated combat leader. He was called "one of the finest special operators in the modern military” by the Commander of Coalition Forces of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Jim Reese started TigerSwan after a decorated career in the military's elite Delta Force. As a service-disabled veteran, Reese entered the private sector undeterred by the new challenges of owning a small business, seizing the opportunity to be a "servant-leader." Today, his entrepreneurial spirit and mission to provide solutions to uncertainty have created a company with over 300 employees in 50 countries worldwide.
In Part 1 of our four-part series on veterans, entrepreneurship, and TigerSwan, we trace the recent history of veteran entrepreneurship in America. We also explain what it means to be a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business and how the federal government supports small enterprises with special socio-economic designations and set-aside contracts.
The technology that powers the GSOC and the Watch Officers that monitor the constant stream of information provide TigerSwan a worldwide capacity for assessing global events as they unfold, addressing critical security challenges of key assets, and managing the safety and integrity of operations across industries and geographies.
