Christina Wing

Founder, Wingspan Legacy

Christina Wing founded Wingspan Legacy Partners to help Founders and Families navigate the intersections between Family dynamics, business operations, wealth, legacy, and philanthropic impact. She believes Families have an outsized opportunity to affect societal change, and with the right guidance, can be global leaders.

Christina is on the faculty of Harvard Business School (HBS) where she focuses her research primarily on topics surrounding Family Enterprises. She created a course titled “Demystifying Families in Business,” which covers family dynamics, operating companies, Family offices and legacy opportunities. She has also taught first-year Technology Operations Management (TOM) and Leadership and Corporate Accountability (LCA) courses. Christina chairs HBS’ executive education program, Families in Business, and co-chairs the Family Office and Rising Generation programs. She frequently teaches in the HBS/Young Presidents’ Organization programs internationally.

A firm believer that you can have it all—just not all at once, Christina gives speeches on families in business, leadership and understanding the different chapters of life. Prior to teaching at HBS and founding Wingspan, Christina held a variety of roles within the finance and general management fields. She was most recently president and CEO of a family office; before that, she was in finance and operations at a start-up venture formed by several of her HBS classmates. She began her career focusing on equities and energy investment banking at Goldman Sachs and Kidder Peabody.

Christina is a Senior Advisor at Crestview Partners, a private equity firm focused on the middle market. She is also on the Advisory Boards of F3 Partners, a fund focused on investing in family businesses, Northrim Horizon, a private investment firm with a long-term focus, and Corvias, a private infrastructure company. Additionally, she is on the Board of Ambassadors of The Steppingstone Foundation, an organization providing educational opportunities to underserved children.

A native of The Woodlands, Texas, Christina graduated from Southern Methodist University with a BBA in finance and organizational behavior and business policy. She also earned an MBA from HBS. She currently lives in Chestnut Hill, Mass., with her husband and three children. Christina is passionate about her family, dogs, friends, students, family clients, and golf.
