Wayne Titus

For Wayne Titus, working with clients means helping them understand their financial situations so they can become good stewards of their money. Titus founded AMDG Financial and AMDG Business Advisory Services, PLC, in 2002 after more than 15 years in management at two large accounting firms, working with Fortune 50 clients. “While I loved the experience, I was looking for something more,” says Titus. “Owning my own tax and advisory firms enables me to share what I’ve learned with my community, while at the same time, honoring my personal values of entrepreneurship, family and civic involvement.” Titus is a fee-only, fiduciary adviser, meaning he is obligated to place his clients’ interests ahead of his own, or those of his two firms. In addition, AMDG Financial, which manages approximately $90 million in assets, was one of the first 10 firms globally to be certified by the Centre for Fiduciary Excellence. The certification recognizes AMDG Financial’s adherence to global best practices for investment adviser fiduciaries. The company’s credo is, “From financial wisdom, better stewardship.” Titus holds a B.S. degree in Accounting from the University of South Florida, a B.A. degree in Business Administration from Grove City College in Pennsylvania, and a Master’s degree in Employee Benefits from John Marshal Law School in Chicago. An active member of the community, Titus serves as chairperson of the Michigan Association of Certified Public Accountants’ Financial Literacy Task Force and as a District Governor for Rotary International, the largest service organization in the world. Through humanitarian work with Rotary and his church, Titus has made 16 trips to El Salvador since 2004, and along with his wife and two sons, has helped provide clean water, education, and medical services to needy families there.
