Role and Company
Founder and CEO, Family Business Institute
47 years experience in consulting
By way of introduction…
An early pioneer in the field of family business consulting, I began studying and advising family business entrepreneurs in 1967 – a career span of more than 40 years. Over the years I have perfected a process for dealing with the unique and complex issues that impact family businesses (especially related to the problems associated with managing the succession process) that have proven highly successful, simple and effective.
In the early 80’s I organized the Family Business Institute which is based in Atlanta – the very first multi-disciplined consulting firm exclusively serving family-owned and closely-held businesses. We are responsible for developing many of the strategies used by successful family businesses.
In the mid 80’s I became the founding sponsor of the first college-based family business program in the USA. Today there are more than 300 family business programs at colleges and universities across the US - more worldwide.
Late in 2001 we began work on our web site Family Business Experts.com – a work still in process. The site does not have any flash or gimmicks, just a lot of great content. Today, because it is a content-rich site, it is the highest-ranked, full-service family business resource site on the Internet. Last month we registered more than 190,000 page views and each month we host visitors from more than 100 different countries.
Our web site has been twice recognized by the Journal of Accountancy (published by the American Institute of CPAs) as one of the top 10 web sites on the Internet - dealing with succession.
