Amy H. Fulford, '00
When Amy founded enlight in 2005, she envisioned working with clients in a meaningful way and understood that a real partnership, not the typical consulting version, would help them create more value. She has helped clients reshape how they run the business by bringing input and insights that change the way they think about their business and industry. Amy understands different perspectives and involves people in being part of the solution. She’s able to look for commonalities among different ideas and finds ways to advance team thinking. She always has ideas but is ready to learn and adapt to every situation.
Amy finds connections and lessons where others aren’t even looking. For instance, Amy might apply how a family office invests in companies or how a start-up bootstraps operations to a manufacturing company’s approach to innovation. She’s constantly applying lessons from clients, someone in the enlight network or other industries. Amy finds parallels by breaking problems down and discovering similarities-- many that are unexpected.
Amy honed her skills through a variety of roles at The Boston Consulting Group, Alcoa Inc., Procter & Gamble and Huntington Bank. She’s worked across virtually every sector, including aerospace, automotive, building and construction, consumer products, financial services, packaging and pulp and paper industries and in distribution, manufacturing, non- profit, professional services and retail sectors. Amy earned an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
