Tim Busch


Tim Busch (Timothy R. Busch), founder and CEO of the Napa Institute, is a seasoned entrepreneur, attorney, CPA, a builder of business entities, and a serious Catholic. In 1979 he founded an Irvine, California-based law firm, The Busch Firm, that specializes in estate planning, asset protection, tax, real estate, corporate law litigation and the representation of religious organizations.

His various affiliations in private operating and real estate companies include the Pacific Hospitality Group and The Heritage Collection, to name a few of his real estate and hotel ventures, and he is also the founder of the Napa-based winery Trinitas Cellars, co-founder of numerous other ventures, and a partner in Busch’s Markets (a 16-store, fresh foods market in southeastern Michigan that Tim and his two brothers continue to grow and expand after buying the entity from their father, the now-late Joseph Busch, a number of years ago).

Tim and his wife, Steph, who are both long-time members of Legatus, are extensively involved in various Catholic organizations and charities, including founding or co-founding a few themselves. As their children were growing, the couple founded two, still-thriving Catholic schools—St. Anne’s in Laguna Niguel, CA, and JSerra High School in San Juan Capistrano, CA. They co-founded the Magis Institute with Fr. Robert Spitzer, S.J.

In addition, Tim founded nine Legatus chapters and in 2011, he and Fr. Spitzer co-founded the Napa Institute, a unique conference and pilgrimage nonprofit focused on preparing Catholics for what Archbishop Chaput once referred to in a landmark talk as “the Next America.”

Tim serves on many boards, including that of The Catholic University of America, The Catholic University of America Board of Visitors for the Busch School of Business and Economics (Chair), the Board of Visitors of the Institute for Human Ecology, Magis Institute, Napa Institute (Chair), the Institute for Church Life at the University of Notre Dame, EWTN, and JSerra Catholic High School in San Juan Capistrano, CA (Chair).  He served on the Executive Committee of the Papal Foundation, where he also served on the Board for 12 years.  In 2016, the Catholic University of America named its business school the Tim and Steph Busch School of Business and Economics, in recognition of Tim and Steph’s generous support of the school.
