About the Speaker: Ellie Frey currently serves as the director of the Family Business Alliance (FBA), an independent, membership based non-profit organization that helps family businesses in West Michigan succeed through generations. Previously, Ellie worked as a commercial Realtor with a local firm that specialized in adaptive reuse of historic buildings and was the first executive director of Local First West Michigan, a network of locally-owned, privately held businesses. Her involvement with the Frey Foundation dates back more than 20 years, when she joined her siblings and cousins on a “next generation” advisory board. Ellie earned a bachelor’s degree in international business and economics from Boston University and currently lives in Grand Rapids, Mich. “I’m honored to serve at the request of my family as a trustee of the Frey Foundation. The generations before me have created an incredible legacy of sustainable philanthropy. I look forward to continuing this tradition and learning from my family and the many others who have committed their time and resources to build dynamic communities,” said Ellie Frey.
