James Reese on the challenges of Tigerswan

James Reese, a former commander with the U.S. Army’s Delta Force, who served 25 years with the Army and, sustained combat wounds, retired as a Lt.Col and since 2008, the founder and CEO of TigerSwan, a global security and protection firm for high-value clients is a man who has had to transition from the rigid demands of the military to the perhaps even more rigid demands of private business.

Reese, who was once described as one described by the commanding general in charge of the coalition forces for both Iraq and Afghanistan as “as one of the finest special operators in the modern military,” Admits that there were many new challenges to master when he formed Tigerswan in 2008.

He reflects that under the structure of the military, and in particular the Delta Forces, commanders are relatively free from worry about getting the best-qualified troops, nor concerns about how they will be paid or taken “It’s more difficult on the business side. Because now you have to take into account the financial apparatus.”

Reese explains that in the private sector, costs are an issue, and you can’t always afford to recruit every rock star you’d like to have on your team, and have to prioritize how to recruit talent. He mentions in particular, a Vice President at the company who started out as a lowly intern but was kept on because he seemed to have real potential, which in fact, was born out over time.

James Reese is particularly thankful for the set aside for companies that have majority ownership in a company run by a disabled veteran.

Qualifying with an 80 percent disability rating by the VA, Reese and his company TigerSwan, was awarded part of a major defense contract to supply translators for the Department of Defense.

Reese reinvested the profits from this contract into the business, and as a consequence, Tigerswan grew to become a 120 plus security force dedicated to protecting both military and civilian executives, on a 24-hour-per-day, 365 days a week basis.

Niranjan Shah Feels Heat as Favoritism Controversy Boils

In 2009, as the University of Illinois was embroiled in controversy surrounding favoritism. One man who had caught a significant amount of heat in the investigations that followed was businessman and renowned philanthropist, Niranjan Shah.

Niranjan Shah came from humble beginnings but rose to a big player entrepreneur in engineering and architecture in Chicago. He had a resounding reputation for getting fair contracts, completing work that was paid for, and contributing a lot of donations to society. He has done all his business openly, avoiding any backroom deals in the interest of full transparency. He used his wealth in order to pursue a fair opportunity in the entrepreneurial realm, not paying to get him there.

Niranjan Shah served proudly as a new chair of the University’s Board of Trustees at the time of the favoritism scandal and regretted that he expressed poor judgment in a handful of cases when he came under scrutiny when he increased his personal involvement in the admission of family members to the university. One such case involved his future son in law, where Shah lobbied for a six-figure post to be set up for him at the university. https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2009/08/u_of_illinois_trustee_chair_to.html

In his resignation amidst the controversial matter, Niranjan Shah seemed to admit that the rules and procedures that the university had in place at the time permitted his actions, but recognized that the rules called for changes.

These controversies landed at the feet of Governor Pat Quinn. After being left dealing with the mess left by disgraced former Governor Rod Blagojevich, it fell to Quinn to address the matters concerning the university as they occurred on his watch.
