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.
PFBI organizes and promotes many seminars, workshops, affinity group meetings and other events related to family business. Please note that some events are capped in size or are limited to individuals or companies that share similar objectives.
We welcome your ideas for future events and topics and affinity groups. If you would like to make a suggestion, or if you have questions about an event, please contact us.
