TIMOTHY CARTWRIGHT

CO-FOUNDER & PARTNER, FIFTH AVENUE FAMILY OFFICE, NAPLES

Cartwright’s firm, which he co-founded in 2006, serves entrepreneurial, high net worth families with multi-generational wealth, providing exit strategies for closely held businesses, oversight of real estate and alternative assets, portfolio constructions, family governance and next gen education. He serves as chair of the Florida Gulf Coast University Foundation and has taught as an adjunct professor at the school since 2018.

EDUCATION University of Wisconsin-Madison (BS), Northwestern University (MBA)
PROFESSIONAL EVOLUTION When I transitioned to Florida, I accepted a job with an investment bank, and I ended up being fired within the first nine months. Free to do whatever I wanted, I decided to start my own company. As I reflected on that decision, I learned that being fired is not an embarrassing situation that limits a person’s potential, rather it frees a person and opens the door to new possibilities.
CHALLENGE This past February, three of my friends and I adopted a 28-day, plant-based cleanse. The best part of the process was the 14 pounds that I lost!
