Governance & Compensation:
The State of Family Businesses in the Pacific Northwest

October 2018 [Full Report]

In late 2017 and early 2018, the Pacific Family Business Institute (PFBI) conducted in-depth interviews and surveyed 81 family businesses in Oregon and Washington to gain a better understanding of regional best practices related to governance and compensation among regional family businesses. This in-depth study complements PFBI’s previous surveys, which date back to 2012 and serve as a barometer of family business in the Pacific Northwest.

This survey was made possible through the support of three sponsors who actively support regional family businesses: Cascadia Capital, Moss Adams, and Davis Wright Tremaine. All of these organizations are fully committed to family businesses in the Pacific Northwest and related research. This report summarizes our key findings and recommendations.
