Resilience Lessons of COVID-19
(At Quinnipiac University)
How We Excel
Resilience is a key business aspect of crisis survival. In fact, Wiebe Associates, LLC learned from COVID-19 it is THE MOST IMPORTANT. Our clients value our services because of our help with two important aspects of all business: resilience and growth. This is accomplished using our deep experience in Risk Identification, Mitigation, Transfer and Crisis Planning. Growth is one of the outcomes of getting all this right. Additionally, we bring our network of professionals to the table for each client; a network that has been decades in development.
How We Started
Michael Wiebe founded Wiebe Associates, LLC (WA) to advise business owners on business protection and business growth. We have been advising and growing with our clients since 2004. Industries have included adventure travel, manufacturing (including high hazard), nutraceuticals, technology platforms (including block chain), health and wellness (including in home), consumer goods, non profits (including child foster care), and professional services. We have also helped develop social media Trust and Safety Teams. Please see “Clients” and “Engagements” sections for representative examples of our clients Risk Management successes.
We bring unique Risk Management to our clients by acting as out sourced Chief Risk Officer (CRO) and offering guidance on taking the appropriate amount of risk. We help our clients get the most of people, attention, money and time to take suitable risk instead of simply mitigating risk. As CRO we help enterprises be more competitive and build resilience for any crisis by utilizing classic and uncomplicated risk management principals. With our decades of experience we add great value and help control cost-of-risk so our clients stay ahead of their competition.
They have been invaluable to our business, an in-home massage start-up, which presents challenging potential legal liability issues for insurers. Additionally, Mike has been a great resource on Risk Management and Insurance issues since my early days in the business.
One area in which most companies do not have INDEPENDENT advice (other from someone selling insurance) is risk and compatible insurance, if desired. I have always found Wiebe Associates right on! Initially, I used him when I was occupying a CFO position. More recently, I have directed my attention to sitting on boards, generally chairing the Audit & Risk Committee. Wiebe & Associates are a valuable tool to recognize holes in the coverage or places to save money…..or both.

Mike serves as our out-sourced Risk and Insurance Consultant and does an outstanding job. He is a great dialogue partner and provides good sound insurance advise. He is a true team player especially when things are constantly changing. Don’t know what we’d do without him.
Ms. Plotzky’s LinkedIn
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and observing his dedication to clients for over 30 years. Over all of this time I have never seen him do anything but work to the best interests of his clients. His reputation as the consummate professional in risk management has been built up as a result of doing what’s right not what’s expedient.
