Amy Wirtz

Amy Wirtz is a senior consultant with The Family Business Consulting Group who is passionate about helping families develop and define their purpose. She works closely with families to identify their goals around values, ownership and financial wealth. To support these goals, Amy helps families establish family offices, family councils and enterprise governance systems.  

“My family has a tradition of family learning which I bring to the work I do with family business owners,” shares Amy. “I assist them in creating updated or new documents and structures that will make their lives easier, and professional teams that focus on their collective goals. I make hard concepts easy for our families to understand.”

Amy believes her role as an advisor is to educate families and business leaders on options and support systems that are available to assist in their continued growth and aligned vision. It is the families’ role to align and select which options best fit their needs. Once the family is aligned on their decision, Amy assists the family, owners and leadership team in developing their implementation plan and ensures that it stays on target.  

Amy brings a diverse range of education and experience to family enterprises including a bachelor’s degree in secondary education and law degree. She served as a lawyer for 27 years, with the last 10 years practicing collaborative law. In addition, Amy is a trained mediator and skilled facilitator in conflict resolution, communication and listening skills.

Utilizing her expertise, Amy helps families identify their unique interests, goals and plans for transfers of values, wealth, ownership and leadership of their various family and business systems.

She serves on multiple family business advisory boards located in Ohio. She frequently teaches and speaks at business forums, including YPO, YPO Family Office, Private Company Governance Conference, and The Exit Planning Institute.
