Your family will be in good hands.


Founded by Amelia Renkert-Thomas - former CEO of Ironrock Inc., her family's 5th generation manufacturing business, granddaughter of the founder of Fisher Price Toys, former lawyer to successful families, founding partner of an award winning international consulting group and author of 'Engaged Ownership: A Guide for Owners of Family Businesses'.

Heading up a family business and a family office, dealing with multi-generational trusts and a family foundation and being a beneficiary of trusts created by her grandparents many years ago made Amelia appreciate the real challenges families face.

Our work

Amelia’s consulting work fills a void between family dynamics and management consul­tancy. Her work reduces and manages the conflicts that can be created by structures of ownership, such as voting and non-voting shares, trusts, partnerships, and foundations, all of which are very familiar to Amelia as a trained lawyer. Her work on  ownership governance has been referred to as ‘the missing piece of the puzzle’ for family businesses.
