Fort Wayne, IN – June 27, 2023 – Ambassador Enterprises, a legacy-minded private equity firm, has named Jeremy Reidy its new Chief Legal Officer (CLO). Reidy will be part of the AE Executive team and provide legal counsel to AE and portfolio companies while overseeing the AE legal team.

A native of Fort Wayne, Reidy has served in leadership roles with legal, educational, and nonprofit organizations in northeast Indiana.
