The Family Business Consulting Group is proud to announce and welcome Richard J. Wolkowitz as its new vice president, serving as a primary resource for the family enterprise community and the advisors who serve them. Rich brings deep experience to his role, overseeing the firm’s external growth, operations and key relationships.
“Over 25 years, Rich’s career has made him a leader, advisor and key confidant to a range of family businesses and family offices,” said Kristi Daeda, the firm’s president. “His unique perspective and energy for their opportunities and challenges will be a great asset to FBCG as we continue to serve families across North America and globally in new ways.”
Rich has been immersed in the family business field in a wide variety of professional, leadership and management capacities working in and advising families. He was a partner for a national law firm representing closely held businesses and their respective executives and family-owned enterprises and their families. He also brings a depth of family office expertise to this position, having served in the fiduciary role for both a single-family office and a multi-family office with operating business portfolios in retail, finance, manufacturing, technology, insurance, wealth management and real estate.
In addition to advising family enterprises, Rich served as a third-generation member and business leader of his family’s multi-state automotive dealership network and finance firms with an embedded family office.
“Families and their family enterprises are uniquely complex and fuel the global economy providing jobs, opportunities and a great deal of philanthropy to further support local communities,” said Richard. “Hence, there is nothing more professionally rewarding to me than playing a leadership role at FBCG — the family and family enterprise industry standard-bearer — to help my colleagues and our family clients achieve a more purposeful life by maximizing the connectivity between the family and the family enterprise.”
Welcome to the team, Rich! We are looking forward to growing with you.
