Center for Private Company Excellence Seminar: Leadership Transitions in Family-Owned Businesses

October 15, 2014
7:30am to 10:00am
Kreischer Miller, Horsham

Over six million Baby Boomer-owned businesses are expected to change hands within the next fifteen years. Many of these businesses are family-owned. Turning over the keys to the next generation involves more than just ownership; you have to prepare them to run the business as well.

This interactive and practical seminar discussed the leadership aspect of family-owned businesses:

  • Personal stories of successful leadership transitions from two owners of multi-generational family businesses
  • Tactics that have worked well and others that have not worked as well
  • Options for businesses in which no family successor is apparent


  • Steven E. Staugaitis, Director, Kreischer Miller
  • Matt Haggerty, CEO, Times Shamrock Communications
  • Michael Pelham, President, International Chemical Company
  • Tyler Ridgeway, Director, Kresicher Miller
