Celine Fitzgerald was born a member of G3 but was unfamiliar with the term until she was 31 years old. Forming a family office was not her desired path, but that path is leading her to greatness.
Celine earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Fordham University in Bronx, New York. She has also earned her Masters in Fashion, Experience and Design Management from SDA Bocconi in Milan, Italy, and her MBA from Loyola University Chicago.
Celine interned for Anne Smart, Director of the Loyola Family Business Center, while gaining her MBA. Over the course of the internship, she met families, listened to generational stories, and sat in on family business seminars. It was not until this moment that she appreciated succession planning, next gen education, estate planning or governance, and began to understand the terms and use them in her daily life. Her family opened the doors of their single-family office in 2019, and Celine is still learning and developing the best practices for the family unit. Celine thrives with philanthropy and has taken over the office’s donor advised fund and launched the family foundation. She put parameters into place where giving is concerned, and she feels the family is set up for success in the future.
