The Pacific Family Business Institute (PFBI) conducts comprehensive surveys of family businesses to better understand the benefits and liabilities of owning and operating a family-owned business in the Pacific Northwest. The 2014 Northwest Family Business Survey captured the views of 195 leaders representing family businesses in more than ten industry sectors in Oregon and Washington. Survey questions covered business history and future, management and governance structures, and the influence of multiple generations on family-owned businesses. PFBI co-directors Rich Simmonds and Mark T. Green will discuss key insights derived from the survey findings.
