Mary Bickers has been advising high net-worth and beverage wholesaler clients since 1979 on the various means of maximizing their wealth and business success. In 2004, she founded Bickers Consulting Group in response to the growing need for tailored estate planning, business succession planning, family wealth preservation and business consulting services. Her expertise has since evolved to include advisory services in mergers and acquisitions for beverage wholesalers throughout the country.
In addition to her deep experience with beverage wholesalers — and unparalleled knowledge of supplier requirements — Mary has an exceptional ability to navigate sensitive family matters and develop solutions that ensure the long-term well-being both of family members and their businesses. She is also in demand as a speaker, having attended and spoken at a number of state and national beer wholesaler meetings and conventions.
Her approach is one of collaboration with clients, always recognizing that mutual respect and understanding is at the forefront of any long-term relationship. Mary is involved in a wide variety of regional and national beverage association organizations, and is deeply involved in her community, serving as a sponsor of several health and human services organizations.
Mary studied at the University of North Carolina, Queens College, the Heckerling Institute on Estate Planning and the NYU Institute on Federal Taxation.
