Leo M. Tilman is Executive Chairman of Capitol Peak Asset Management. Prior to founding the firm, he was President and CEO of Tilman & Company (now Capitol Peak Solutions), a strategic advisory firm serving corporations, financial institutions, governments, and institutional investors worldwide. Previously, Mr. Tilman held senior positions with BlackRock and Bear Stearns, where he was Chief Institutional Strategist and Senior Managing Director.

Mr. Tilman is the author of three books: Financial Darwinism (2009), Asset/ Liability Management (Ed, 2003), and Risk Management (2000). He is an adjunct faculty member of Columbia University, his graduate and undergraduate alma mater, and contributing editor of The Journal of Risk Finance. In 2010, in collaboration with the Nobel economist Edmund Phelps, he co-authored a Harvard Business Review proposal to create the First National Bank of Innovation. In a 2012 European Financial Review article, he redefined risk intelligence and designated it a new essential competency for companies and investors. He is the creator of the Corporate Risk Scorecard, a “Nutrition Label” for companies (Barron’s, 2013), and co-author of the “Brain as a Business Model” framework (EFR, 2014).

Mr. Tilman’s nonprofit work focuses on foreign affairs, economic development, and education. He is a board member of Atlantic Partnership, member of the Colorado Forum, a trustee of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and an international advisory board member of British American Business and the Center on Capitalism and Society at Columbia University. Mr. Tilman has been profiled as a Business Visionary by Forbes, a distinction given to “influential authors, decision makers, and thought leaders in the field of business.” He was honored by the World Economic Forum among a select group of executives, public figures and intellectuals recognized for “their professional accomplishments, commitment to society, and potential to contribute to shaping the future of the world.”
